Manchester City has become a powerhouse this past decade, a feat that many in Manchester did not expect. Manchester United is arguably the biggest club in England for its success in the Champions League and domestic cups and for winning the most Premier League titles among all English teams. After all that success, Man City has dominated the scene in England ahead of Man United partly due to some money invested in the club.

There has been lots of controversy regarding Manchester City's spending. After being taken over in 2008 by Sheikh Mansour, the club has consistently battled for trophies. They won their first Premier League title in 2011 and have won nine over more than a decade. Man City has spent over 1 billion since the takeover in 2008. Manchester United have not won a league title since 2013.

Manchester United fans believe the only way to return to the glory days is to spend as much or more than Manchester City. Manchester United have done just that but in a poor way. They have overspent on players for large transfer fees. Manchester City have smartly spent them on players with potential, like Kevin De Bruyne in 2015, Ederson in 2017, and Rodri in 2019. The treble Manchester City won last season has become more impressive after new reports show that their squad was not the highest value in Europe.
