"It is always about the money," said Everton manager Ronald Koeman when asked after Sunday's 1-0 home loss to Burnley if his team's poor start to the season was particularly disappointing given the recent recruitment of new players for around 140 million pounds ($185.8 million).Around half of the money spent on new players came from the sale of the club's top player, striker Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United for a reported 75 million pounds.It is a sign of how well those deals are working out that three of the most prominent of those players, former England captain Wayne Rooney, Dutch midfielder Davy Klaassen and Spanish attacker Sandro Ramirez, started Sunday's loss on the bench.Spurs sold the Welshman for 85 million pounds and used that money to bring in seven players.
