I can understand it very well, and I sympathize with them and don't blame them unlike some people here.
These players have to feel that by leaving they will be losing something. And this shouldn't come in a form of a threat (which is the implied chance of being left off a national team).
Remember that the focus should be on keeping the best players. Many will still leave, but look for ways to keep the Tolchinskys and the Zharkovs and the Serebryakovs.
