I was being facetious, which you clearly picked up on. Of course the club wants value for money but if you think we determine that predominantly by resale value then you've not been paying attention. Do you think the club were arsed about resale value when they bought players like Fernandinho, Mahrez, Otamendi, Yaya Toure, Kyle Walker and so on? The answer is no, they saw value for money because they predicted that these players would help them achieve their objectives in the pitch. Resale value and marketing potential comes a distant second to that. Resale value is the primary consideration when we're snapping up players from academies around the world to spread out amongst the various clubs of CFG in order to put them in the shop window and make a profit on them a year or two down the line. If a player like Koulibaly is brought in it's going to be because he has a track record of being one of the best on the planet in his position. If you don't agree with his quality, you think he's past his best or that there are genuinely better options out there then that's an argument I might disagree with but I understand it. But why anyone would be looking at the situation and worrying that we might not make a decent fee off them later on is beyond me.
