Is there an unspoken agreement from some clubs not to sell to us?

Why would a boycott make sense when it would cut off a potential revenue stream and push their outgoing transfer fees down?

It’s a point of pride that traditional sky big six clubs don't like selling to us because they want to compete with us. But they aren't going to not sell to us when it isn't possible to retain the player and afford to increase his wages or take a big hit on the fee by selling to another club.

the so called elite have so much power even at other clubs they control things. so nothing would shock me if there is a boycott in selling to city ? take sancho he was reported a possible £120 million transfer but went to utd for £73 million you think if city was in for him we get him for £73million ??

everybody knows and can see city are short in strikers so why not make it even harder and all get together and block a transfer like Kane to city

if the so called top 6 don't like city or selling to city then i can understand it
but when city offered £130million for kane why did they down it down ? crazy offer for a 28 year old and in covid-19 hit you think anybody would bite your hand off ? something fishy was going on and if utd was offering that amount you could bet they sell to utd who are also a top 6 club

manchester city are fighting the system ? because they have all got together more than once to stop us before

Well we had a sell-on clause of Sancho for 15%, so of course we would have to pay higher. But it doesn't make any sense for Dortmund to alienate clubs who they might be trying to buy academy players from.

Spurs don't like selling to domestic rivals other than us, Modric was blocked from going to Chelsea. But you can't really argue that there is a conspiracy against us when their 2nd most expensive departure and most expensive departure is Kyle Walker to City.

There are various reasons why Spurs might not have wanted to sell him, politics, fan backlash and value for money securing a ready made replacement.

interesting comment from bonucci

But then they went and did a swap deal with us for Cancelo.

We were probably lucky with that one anyway, because if Bonucci couldn't settle into a team in the next province it's less likely he would have wanted to stick around in another country.
