If we look to improve our first 11 then surely the players who leave are not from our first 11 but from the bench ?
Would Alli behave and be professional if he was dropped to the bench? I have my doubts.
I think the answer is not as straighforward as you think. See Walker when he was dropped a few games. We don't pay them enough to be happy to as a sub. I don't know who would I sell if we manage to get an upgrade on him. I think the foreign quota that Hercules mentioned would be a important factor, but it's not an easy decision imo.
For example say we bring back Bale, or Isco. Alli will want to leave in the next 6 months for a team that plays him or at least pays him double. Lamela won't have a problem
