    This is a good and welcome change in last 2 seasons, we are getting good price for the players we are offloading. This coincided with Jose's take over.

    Before 2016-17, we sold Hernandez for around 7 million,
    Kagawa for 5 million
    Zaha for probably around 5-7 million
    Evans for 4-5 million
    Rafael for 2 million.

    Since Jose's take over.
    Schneiderlin for 24 million
    Depay for around 16-20 million
    Januzaj for 8 million plus we have buy back option
    Johnstone for 6.5 million and with add ons it will go up to 10.5 million
    Now we are getting around 19 million pounds for Blind, player we barely used last season and have only 1 year left on contract.
    Mkhitaryan to land Sanchez

    We are ready to play waiting game for Darmian.

    It's a good change, is this something we can give credit to Jose or are we getting decent price just because of market inflation?

    For me I would give lot of credit to Jose.

    To give 1 example, if clauses are met then Sam Johnstone will be in top 10 fee received by ManUtd.

    Jose doesn’t sell players. Looks like the club has decided to be more aggressive with player sales. Also looking like we need to part finance purchases with sales.

    I'm crediting Jose with this. We've been notoriously poor with selling players, basically selling for a pittance.

    Jose has always done well with selling, I wouldn't be surprised if he helps put a minimum price on players.

    He won't sell but surely he will give some inputs like if we get only so and so price we can sell the player?

    I reckon it's helped with Jose saying he's not looking to sell anyone, but if a player wants to leave and the club gets a fair price they are always open to sell, where I feel like our previous "clear outs" it's been publicly known we were overly keen on selling.

    I think its Mourinho having an input, the more money the club makes the back the more money Mourinho has to buy new players with.

    We are not Ajax. It should not be a big deal whether or not we get big transfer fees for players.

    Eh? Why should it not be a big deal? Even Man United have a cap on transfer budget. Then the more they get from sales, the more Jose can add to his pot. It should DEFINITELY be a big deal on what price we get for the sale of our players. Just logical business acumen.

    Tbf I have never cared about this, and when Chelsea fans talk about it, it always looked like a moral victory for me anyway, but it's good from the club's perspective in terms of budget though. What I care about is using this money added to the budget in buying new useful players, not just selling the deadwood.

    £12m for Hernandez
    £7m for Kagawa (4 years ago, equivilant is probably around £15m now)
    Zaha we also inserted both a buy-back and healthy sell-on fee.
    Evans we sold for £8m and he was going into the final year of his deal.
    Rafael is probably worth half that now :lol:

    I'd be surprised if we've got a buyback on Zahara and haven't activated it. No chance it'd be as much as his market value now and we could just sell him on.

    Think it’s a first refusal rather than a fixed fee.

    Hernandez 7.3 million which is very less for Mexican international and record goal scorer.
    https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/34108233

    Zaha we have very good sell on fee, no buy back clause.

    Rafael was still sold for very low fee, when he was still young player, Evans was 6+2 million which was less considering he was home grown player and was very experienced player.

    There is clear improvement in our selling strategy, we even rejected transfer fee for Darmian as we have stuck to the asking price, same with Blind as per de Telegraaf.
