Then when the players are 25-26 it might make more sense to trade them than to try to re-sign them to a very expensive contract (if they even want to remain Arsenal players when their contracts are about to expire).
I think the recent trades have been more akin to trading a pending UFA player in the NHL than Arsenal being poor.
Yeah Arsenal is definitely not poor, but the latest transfers was Song and RvP.
We gave a massive contract for RvP who definitely is a top 5 striker in the world, but also massively injury prone. He declined and we decided to sell him than let him walk.
Song was sold because he had poor attitude with the coaching staff and kept getting into trouble and was just a cancer this year.
