Pep Guardiola has claimed that Manchester United couldn’t afford to lure any of his Bayern Munich stars to Old Trafford this summer.

The Red Devils were linked with moves for the likes of Arjen Robben and Thomas Mueller during the recent transfer window but failed in their attempts to bring them to the Premier League outfit.

And when asked if he had to say no to newly-appointed United boss Louis van Gaal, Guardiola replied: “They [United] didn’t have enough money.”

The Spaniard continued: “I saw they spent a lot of money. It’s good for my friend Louis. It’s part of the game.

“All of the clubs in the world want the players of anther club. It depends on the player.

“If the player wants to play he will play. If he wants to stay he will stay.”

United brought in Angel Di Maria, Daley Blind and Radamel Falcao late on in the summer transfer window.
