I have a couple of potential issues with this potential Sanchez deal.

First off he isn't as cheap as people make out, 20m upfront plus a player we paid 25m brings the cost around 45m. Then he wants a 10m signing on fee and around 7m bringing the cost to around 62m which isn't really that cheap for a player who'll turn 30 next season and only has 6 months left on his contract.

Secondly I don't think you should sign a player just because he is "cheap" in my mind if you don't think the player is worth the full asking price then you shouldn't be buying them. It's like the crap you buy in the January sales to later regret.
In the current market Sanchez would be worth around 80-90m, if you wouldn't consider him for that much then buying him because he is cheap is a silly thing to do.

If we’re happy to pay £30m for Lindelof, £30m for Fellaini, £30m for delay, etc I’d happily splash £80m on Sanchez.

Cant disagree with that stand, if we want the best we have to pay regardless.

Stand that's fair enough if that's your view.

It's more the people who wouldn't sign him for his true value but feels we should sign a player just because he is considered a bargain in the current market.

I never have any issue with United and the money they pay to get a player. Doesn't make any odds what they pay.

If you want top notch then you have to pay it.

75 million on lukaku. I'm more than happy to see Sanchez valued at 80 million.

It’s not our money. It’s the clubs.

Would Sanchez improve us? Yes
Is he world class? Yes
What do we lack? World class players
Is he injury prone? No
Is he short term? Yes
We need short and long term players as well.

Mad hatter - nailed it.

Whether or not Sanchez would be a plus in pure football terms is worthy of debate but to spend time conjecturing on his financial value based on wild speculation as to transfer fee, wages, signing bonus, agents fees and the value of a player going the other way, seems to me to be a bit pointless. Leave the money to the clubs. Would he fit in or not?
