Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup accepts they could lose their star players in the summer.
But the Dane insists no-one will be allowed to leave on the cheap.
"It will be very difficult for me and the club and the players in August saying if that if we finish 17th on the last day of next season it will be a success.
"Maybe it would because we are still one of bottom clubs in terms of transfers and salaries, but we have to work well in transfer market to keep as many important players as possible.
"However, you can never say one or two won't be lost because there could well be an offer that they can't resist."
