Let's be honest if we had bought Lukaku for 75 million quid there would be people moaning.

Buying anyone for this amount of money, + the wages he'd be on, means being stuck with him for many, many years. Especially for us - when we buy big, we've too much pride to cut our losses - we stick with expensive failing players for a long time.

So it'd be a panic buy. Certainly not a shrewd one, nor a pragmatic one.

It'd be much better to just wait another season or 2 to see which young strikers come into their own, and then pull the trigger on someone who fits our profile for a fraction of the cost, meaning there's far fewer anchors chaining us to the player.

Fingers crossed for Matic as player-manager too.

(I'm joking of course. Cahill's more player-manager material.)

 

Thewiz would love that lol

I won't get annoyed yet, maybe the board has other options that they are following and maybe Conte never really wanted lukaku. But if by the community shield match, nothing is done, it'll be a scandal. We can't just have this stupid barrier of not spending above £35mil. There's no striker who costs below that anymore

Annoying how if he does go to Man U it's yet another player we've let go going to rivals. Yeah another club in between but still..

All this selling off of players we've been doing and all of the hoarding of cash we've done lately...

You never know! :P Would certainly be a megaton bomb that would put the rest of Europe on notice.

If we get Mbappe, this place would explode. I'd cream my pants if that were to happen :D

They can't close a deal for Sandro or any other expensive target and you expect this incompetent board to pull out a deal like that?

BREAKING NEWS

A twist!

Senior Everton sources have told us that no deal has been agreed to sell Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United.

So our sources say a bid has been accepted - but Everton say no deal yet. 

YET

They probably used Rooney to cut the price down. We had no leverage and thus probably should have paid more than 75M, which we clearly aren't ready to do.

to cut his price? 75 mil is after that?! lol

This is a great point.

like, what have we been doing, fucking around with Everton with derisory £50m bids or something we knew they'd never accept? Or just thinking it was a foregone conclusion that he's desperate to return here? Incompetence either way.

Maybe Emanelo wants him but conte doesn't?  no agreement between them...
