Maybe you did not read fully what i had said, i suggested playing Batshuayi as the sole striker and when we are in a SAFE position bring Benteke back for say the last Six league games to lead the line with Batshuayi played in the "10" role, which i feel would be his ideal position and it would also bring the best out of CB play.
The backfire i refer to was in the event of Benteke experiment not working out then we sell him in the summer, it is not a question of getting sentimental but apart from his enormous fee he is on a massive wage and as i mentioned he is not going to be easy to move on, hence why i said we would need to take a hit on his fee and get around 10m.
But surely before we consider discarding him is it not sensible to give him a final chance to prove he still has it? afterall a fully functional Benteke is a perfect fit Centre Forward for Palace's style of play.
