Nah. Chelsea are a bad example. We don't need that many players.
It's very easy to get rid of players. Remember, we're only getting rid of the crap and we're not buying that many more than we did this season, unlike Chelsea
We only need 8 new players if we boot out all 17. I'd mentioned this in good detail in the transfer thread.
We got in 7 this season so it's more about booting players out. Even your Chelsea did a good job selling players.
You're living in dreamland thinking we can offload 17 and only bring in 8. Unless all 8 are first team ready - so an outlay of at least £500m (£600-700m with United prices) - then you're probably relying on lots of youth to plug gaps when injuries happen. A big risk when we're not talking a class of 92 style generation.
As for the 7 we got in this season. 1 is a backup GK, 2 are emergency loans and 1 is Johnny Evans (love that he's back but he shouldn't be a first teamer). So that's 3 signings for the first team. And you want 8 in one window and have explicitly said you'd prefer the Glazers to stay. Make your bloody mind up. Your plan requires Boehly style state investment and competence with sales because you won't raise £500m with those 17 outgoings - you'd be lucky to get £100m.
Anyway don't want to get off topic. Sancho looks to be done and tbf with Pellistri, Garnacho and Diallo now pressuring him for his place, if he's not giving his all then it's time to go. We won't sell him in Jan because we're fucking dense. He might go on loan to Dortmund but we'd pay all his wages. Maybe next summer shift him for £20m to the Bundesliga.
