Question: Does Arsene Wenger only sell players at their peak, or do players he sells get better after they leave?
2
Summer ofPlayerSold To Better After Sale (three year window)?Notes
3
2012Alex SongBarcelonaTBDToo early to judge, but as of right now it has to be a no
4
Robin van PersieManchester UnitedTBDHe is as good as he was last year, but this is really only his second full season given his injury history
5
Manuel AlmuniaWatfordTBDHas started almost every game for Watford, who are currently in third place in the Championship, but couldn't crack Arsenal's first team
6
Samir NasriManchester CityNnnnnnopeShould be TBD but seriously fuck that guy
7
2011Cesc FabregasBarcelonaTBDDoesn't really fit with Barca's system; could still be amazing but as long as Xavi and Iniesta are there Cesc is a square peg in a round hole
8
Emmanuel EboueGalatasarayNo
9
Gael ClichyManchester CityArguableHad a bad last season at Arsenal, has been better since he left; overall it may be a push, but if he keeps it up he'll be a yes next season.
10
2010Mikael SilvestreWerder Bremen/TimbersNoCurrently the best defender the Timbers have, but he didn't get better at Bremen and MLS is a lesser league
