No, spending still happens and is okay, if it is sustainable. The problem is breaking the wage structure - that invariably has a cascading effect that is felt. The only clubs that were able to justify it, to an extent, were Madrid and Barca, since 2 aliens played there. But even they are struggling with the effects of that in the long term.

For Bayern, outside of Alaba leaving, they are struggling with Coman, Sule and Goretzka renewals too, I think. It's crazy.
There wage structure will be a mess if not careful which is weird for a club like Bayern

That’s the problem at most clubs right there mate. It’s done outside their means and not sustainable. And fans now just want more. With absolutely no F’s given for the consequences of that.

Bayern had a great structure and they went and ruined it on one player. With the knock-on effect, like you mentioned. Which has cost them two straight summers and counting now.

They’ve shown how easilly one poor financial decision on a player can have a cumulative affect across the whole business.

🗣 — @Matt_Law_DT:

"West Ham will tell you that they want £100m for Rice but people around at West Ham tell me that they would look seriously towards a bid that comes around at £60m because of his current situation." #mufc #mujournal

"Dortmund are showing no signs of being inclined to sell Haaland at the moment."

"There are still talks for Romelu Lukaku going on behind the scenes."

Matt believes Chelsea must have a suitor for Tammy Abraham before signing a new ST.

Eintracht Frankfurt are still interested in signing Jens-Petter Hauge. AC Milan have turned down the opening bid around €7/8m as they want €12m to sell the Norwegian talent. 🇳🇴 #ACMilan

Eintracht are planning to try again as Hauge is one of their main targets. #Eintracht

Crystal Palace are in talks with Schalke over a fee for Ozan Kabak but face competition from several other clubs to sign the defender, who spent time last season on loan at Liverpool.

Celtic striker Odsonne Édouard, who worked with Palace’s new development coach Saïd Aïgoun at Paris Saint-Germain’s academy, is another potential target for Patrick Vieira
