The city of Manchester has red and blue sides. The Red Devils dominated play, winning all the trophies in town while the blue half looked on. Things are different now as the tide has changed in favour of Manchester City.
While poor decisions have been the hallmark of Manchester United, culminating in poor results, Manchester City has made better decisions. They have been logical in player recruitment, with their reward system top-notch. The Citizens do not sign players or reward them arbitrarily.
In Manchester United, players like Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire are on high wages despite not meriting it. Over on the other side of the city, the Citizens have just given Phil Foden a new contract that reflects his performance on the pitch for the club.
