Not sure Benfica qualify, Di Maria, Oblak, Witsel, Ederson, David Luiz, Raul Jimenez, Guedes, Matic, and Ramires all were value for money spent.If there was a vote the club that should win is Lyon or Benfica, there seems to be a rule where these two clubs will make you pay more than you should on every single transfers and they will make every negotiation last a decade while briefing the press on a daily basis.
Guedes, Ramirez and David Luiz weren't value for money. In particular Guedes who was well below par for PSG, Ramires was an average player sold for very good player money and David Luiz was a defender that could barely defend sold for top CBNot sure Benfica qualify, Di Maria, Oblak, Witsel, Ederson, David Luiz, Raul Jimenez, Guedes, Matic, and Ramires all were value for money spent.
Would completely disagree re: David Luiz and Ramires. Both were instrumental in winning the CL for us and both were moved on for significantly more than we paid. Guedes I'll give you; admittedly I'd forgotten he went to PSG and I thought he went straight to Valencia.Guedes, Ramirez and David Luiz weren't value for money.

But then you have Felix, Renato Sanches, Gaitan(To Atletico), Ivan cavaleiro(to Monaco), Lindelof, Mitroglou(To Marseille), Semedo and then you have De Tomas sold for what is a fortune for Espanyol. Benfica has the habit to sell players for way more than they are worth.
Yeah I would say that the clubs that bought Beckham, RVN, Stam, Pique, Ronaldo, De Maria, Lukaku, Blind, Zaha, Tevez, Nani, Evans, Pogba, (even Depay)....... were fairly happy with their purchases whatever the individual circumstances behind them leaving. They also tend to get a good deal so conversely we are actually a great club to buy from. Could you imagine trying to get Ronaldo or Stam from Madrid during the peak of their careers?Us? Half the clubs in the league pyramid have an ex-United youngster - often bought at a very good price (seemingly because SAF felt helping the kid out was as important as making some money) - in their first team and doing very well for them.
Generally speaking though, we only let a player go if they're not good enough for us. So you can't expect them to be making a team better than us. But as some examples Neville was a very well thought of Everton captain. O'Shea the same for Sunderland. Michael Keane is in the England set-up. Simpson won the Premier League. Johnny Evans having a good PL career.
We sold Beckenbauer, Müller, Breitner, Rummenigge, Matthäus, Brehme, Kohler, Helmer, Hummels, Jarolim, Can, Johansson, Sergio, Santa Cruz, Jorginho, Ballack, Diarra, Shaqiri, Lucio, Hoibjerg, Kroos, Bernat, Costa, Mandzukic, will sell Thiago... Go wash your mouth. Not our fault your medical staff sucks.By far bayern because they only sell when their players are finished at top level
He had a Release Clause for Champions League teams.Well, it seems really difficult to get players from Leicester these days. How the hell did Chelsea get Kante so easily ?
Well, if they sell Thiago Alcantara, they will regret it. He is really goodHe had a Release Clause for Champions League teams.
Bayern Munich, doubt they have many regrets over the players they have sold over the past 10 years, maybe Kronos but I think he was in his last year of his contract
That is SO true. Makes you wonder if the system flatters the players. I've never seen a club whose attacking players take such a dive in performance after leaving. And they're all young too.Kagawa, Goetze, Sahin, Mikhi, there's got to be more. Dortmund's players always tend to be underwhelming after departing.
Well couple of them went back after failing and never reached the hights hit before leaving, so who knows.That is SO true. Makes you wonder if the system flatters the players. I've never seen a club whose attacking players take such a dive in performance after leaving. And they're all young too.
This. I think the only player who ever left who weakened them (at least in my memory) was Kroos and that was due to them not budging on their contract offer. Every player they sell is expendable to them, people rave about Thiago now and he's clearly an excellent player but there's a reason they are letting him look at other options because, at 29, this is really the time to cash in and offset the huge losses all teams are making during covid.Bayern Munich
Yeah 50/50.Not near the worst, but Monaco's sales are wild. They either do great or are a terrible waste of money
Yes, pretty much daily for months. They had a contract almost done and dusted, but at the last second Thiago said he thought about it deeply and wants to experience another top league, so he didn't sign. Bayern either sell him now or force him to stay the last year, but I can't see that happen.I'm not sure they want to keep him. Have they said that ?
