We have paid £16M for Sorloth.
Benteke is on £100k/week, which is £5M/year. He signed a four-year deal, meaning our wages outlay will have been £20M for him, which is enough to cover the cost of Sorloth’s transfer (just once, not 3x).

Also, you are forgetting the 15 league goals Benteke got in his first season, which arguably kept us up. How much is that worth to us? Sorloth has looked like a deer in headlights every minute he has played at this level.

Still, don’t let facts get in the way of a good old Benteke rant. Boring
