I don’t think there should be an “if” in that sentence.
We got money for RVP, even if Wenger didn’t replace him adequately but we could have got more than 50m for Sanchez and got a decent replacement early in the transfer window.
But because Wenger is such a ditherer, he waited until the season started and everyone could see how inept we were, and no decent player would come here.
This means we are going to lose Sanchez to Man City anyway and get no one to replace him, as well as receiving no money for him.
I don’t think we are handing them the title and I certainly don’t think selling him would ruin any chance of us getting into the CL because Wenger has seen to that with his failure in the transfer market.
Sanchez was here last season and we didn’t make the top four, so I hardly think an unhappy Sanchez is going to make any difference anyway.
