Rooney to Everton.

Apparently they still want Giroud in addition to Rooney, that would mean Romelu is gone for sure.

Edit:

And they already got Sandro as well...

With Rooney leaving United and even with them likely getting Morata, they'd still only have Morata, Martial, and Rasfrod who can play as a striker. One injury and they'd be in huge trouble since you know José doesn't trust kids. Surely they'll be bringing in 2 forwards.

So let's say hypothetically they make a huge offer for Lukaku and he chooses to go there? He seems to be best mates with Pogba and is yet again on holiday with him in LA so I'm sure they speak about playing together all the time. We know from first hand experience that when José phones his transfer targets he can be extremely convincing and usually gets his players.

 What the hell would we even do in that scenario? Our #1 striker target who everyone assumes is a foregone conclusion to return.

I think they'll sign Morata and for the second one we'll see Mourinho pulling an "Eto'o" and signing Diego Milito or some old chap who will warm the bench until Morata gets injured.

Yes, it is still possible to see Lukaku joining MU. Strange things happen. And we have yet to see the strangest.

Don't understand why some still believe Lukaku to us is done deal, while the situation say otherwise.

Well people believe the same with Lukaku, Sandro and Bakayoko.

Remember. New shirts deal, 1st of July. :D:D:D

if our two biggest deals get done (Sandro, Lukaku) I think they will play beautifully together. Lukaku can finish with Left, Right, or(most importantly) his Head while being physically dominant over defenders while establishing position. Sandro can whip accurate crosses in and will have loads of space on the left created by hazard. Only problem is closing two of the biggest deals this summer. Exciting times ahead.

How many great strikers do Bayern have? Or Juventus? Or PSG?

How many top teams do Juventus, Bayern, or PSG have to face a season? 
How many do we?

They can afford to, and always do, rest their very best striker(s), while playing youth or otherwise for half the games of a season. They can save Lewandowski & Cavani for the big games in Europe, pulling them off after 60 mins each game. If we saved Costa that way, for example, mainly for the big games like these others do, our season would collapse.
Where is our Dybala? And Mandzukic? Don't imply Juventus don't have multiple top strikers. Where is our Muller? Their Plan-B centre forwards are as good as all our Plan-A ones from the past 5 years.

Why wouldn't you compare us to teams in our own league? Because it defeats & contradicts your point?

Any point no matter how solid can have a point built against it if someone wants to build it enough - that doesn't mean it's valid. The idea that for Chelsea, to win both league titles and European titles, multiple top strikers aren't needed, isn't valid. That shouldn't even need explained, it's obvious why a team can't do that, why 1 striker can't do that.

Like you, I can just ask, how many great strikers do Barcelona have? How many great strikers did United have last season? How many great strikers did we have during our most successful period? How many great strikers do Man City, our actual competition, not PSG, have? Did I just make a point by asking those questions? No, because they're obviously stupid in this context. Comparing us to a team who couldn't even win the French league this season, to a team that beat Roma by 4 points, their worst season in ages, to a team who walk the league even with half of their players injured. Not a strong rebuttal.
