When a club sells their best players, it usually means that they will struggle the following season without their key men. Clubs in the past have let go of their biggest stars for large sums of money for more than one reason and, in most cases, failed to improve on their past achievements. Some teams can get away with it due to their size – the Manchester Uniteds of this world have allowed Beckham, Cantona, and Ronaldo to leave and…
