"So yes we'll look at as many good experiences as we can do, and that's for the whole of the season, not just the start".
"City are probably not going to know as much about us as we do about them".
Guardiola will travel to Brighton with new signings Bernardo Silva, Ederson Moraes, Kyle Walker and Danilo, although Benjamin Mendy is still working his way back to fitness after a thigh injury.
"Hopefully next season I will be here and we will not spend how we spent this season", Guardiola told reporters ahead of City's Premier League opener at Brighton on Saturday.
"We bought three and the market is so demanding right now, for all the teams around the world, not just for Manchester City". The group of players are going to stay here for a long time.
Guardiola said the current spike in football transfer spending, which culminated in Neymar's recent world record move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain for 222 million euros (£200 million, $260 million), had been building for some time.
Pep explained City's heavy investment, saying, "We had one of the oldest teams in the Premier League so we chose to put energy in the team for the next five, six years. We will maybe change one important player".
"I think he's close to coming back", Guardiola said.
"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed".
The Israeli midfielder will miss around two months of action through a broken fibula, while Sam Baldock and Solomon March are unlikely to play either.
After bolstering their squad, Guardiola's side - who came third last season - have been made favourites to win the title, but the City manager said he could cope with that burden.
There were some promising signs last season - an opening salvo of 10 straight wins, a stunning Champions League victory over Barcelona - but City never found any consistent form. Every game is a battle, especially with the teams who arrive in the first four, five or six games - they are so complicated, especially away. We were not able with those players to find a solution. "We did it without pressure in friendlies and now we have to see how we react under pressure".
