It is not my job to comment on this.

Do it for yourselves, but at the same time for the club ”. But at the same time, we are not going to give gifts. When we want to recruit, just because we are Manchester City, we are asked a lot more money than any other club. So obviously we're not going to let our players go for free. There has to be a negotiation, an agreement between the clubs … ”.
