Sanchez was an expensive mistake...we shouldn't judge current and future transfers against him, now that - hopefully - the recruitment is closer to normal.Compared to what Sanchez costs us, its the bargain of the year....
You are confusing two things. One is that the cost you mention includes wages. Transfer fees do not. Secondly, you are imagining that a "Werner"deal would happen automatically. That is not so.Sanchez was an expensive mistake...we shouldn't judge current and future transfers against him, now that - hopefully - the recruitment is closer to normal.
Honestly, I would prefer if they'd spent the 50m on Werner so that we have 3 reliable senior striking options - since Martial and Rashford have had injury problems at times, and Greenwood isn't ready to carry the load. Plus, long-term, nobody knows if Martial will stick around...he's not someone I would rely on to stay and consistently perform at a high level.
