I mean, do you know that Leicester sold for £200M 3 players the club bought for £17.4? And, even more relevant, they made more points every year?
In the last two years, Leicester City have sold three players for £200m who cost them £17.4m to buy. Have gained more points in each season. If you sit outside the financial elite, selling is a sign of sense not an admission of weakness if you get the recruitment right.

With Ben Chilwell signing for Chelsea for 5 years, for a sum of £45M, they had made great deals overall.
[Since his debut] Chilwell has played a total of 99 times in the Premier League, claiming nine assists and four goals. He featured in the Champions League for the first time in 2016/17 as Leicester topped their group before going out in the quarter-finals to Atletico Madrid. His first senior goal came against Tottenham in the penultimate game of the campaign.
He’s had some great years with Leicester, but let’s see where Chelsea can take him. You can see more about his style of play and his profile on Chelsea’s official site.
The other big deals were Harry Maguire to Manchester United for £80M and Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City for £60M.
