Selling Torstein Helstad to France

Ok, this will be my last summer (agurk..) comment, but I feel strongly about it.
Torstein Helstad, topscorer in Brann (my team) and the Norwegian Tippeliga, has been sold to France, and almost everybody is furious. Except me, I think it was the absoulte right thing do – the season is anyway lost, Helstad is at his prime and will most certainly see a decline in performance in a year og two, get his top market value and buy some new younger coming-star-players like Ighalo (but he’s on his way to Italy I read, but I think it was a very smart move and is already looking forward to the next season.
