Arsene Wenger feels football in general is suffering due to teams like Manchester City, Chelsea or PSG who are bankrolled by wealthy benefactors.
The Gunners have already splashed a good amount of money for the signature of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud and are firm favourites to land Santi Cazorla from Malaga that could cost around £18m.
However, Wenger feels that Arsenal are not operating financially on the same level like other cash-fuelled clubs in Europe and England.
Manchester City under the ownership of Sheikh Mansour have bought top quality players for exorbitant fees and though they remain bit dormant in transfer activity this season yet the Citizens are working hard to lure Dutchman Robin van Persie at the Etihad.
Likewise, Chelsea had spent over £50m in buying Eden Hazard and Oscar while PSG have stunned everyone by landing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva from AC Milan.
“A club can buy players like PSG has done or Manchester City or Chelsea, with unlimited resources, but overall football suffers.” – Wenger said.
“Europe at the moment is like the Titanic but we live in football like nothing matters.
“More than ever we have to run our club in a strict way because it looks like everybody suffers in Europe. I would be surprised if football is not touched by it at some stage.”
