We could've got a quality player for the 24m we got for van Persie, we got Giroud and Podolski. We could have got a quality player with the 25m we got for Nasri, we got Gervinho and Chamberlain
But seriously, if he is to be sold, is he going to add much to Chelsea? They already look like a 88-90 point team. People have slated him as a CF for vacating the box, nobody else seems to want him behind a striker and personally I've started to go off him a bit as a winger where he's not involved all the time. Chelsea will probably buy someone good anyway, so if they would pay 20m more than other clubs it might not be as tragic as I might of thought a few weeks ago.
Lets face it, this season we're competing with Chelsea about as much as we were competing with United in 11/12. In the short term we're looking to overcome United, Spurs, Liverpool before we're fighting with Chelsea and City and we're probably about to go into another"transition phase" anyway.
I keep changing my mind on all this Sanchez/Ozil in/out keep/sell bollocks, its driving me mad.
