When an incoming partner purchases his share from one of existing partners why the total assets of firm will be reduced ifexisting partner withdraws the share surrendered ?

if the incoming partner purchases his  share ( or say  premium  for  goodwill) , it means he gives money to the firm which is credited to surrendering partner and  surrendering partner  withdraws the money ( of    premium  for  goodwill). it  is just like drawings of partner and cash goes out of the firm , the total assets are reduced by that cash.
