I'm afraid not a lot of you will have seen the interview (let alone be able to understand a single word they say ). So here's the summary of the most important things that have been said: He's feeling

Big words from Drog.

Wrong shirt at the wrong moment Romelu

"I'm at a point where I have to make a good career choice. We have a new investor at Everton, and out of courtesy I will listen to what he has to say. But I have my own ideas in mind. I want to win titles."

"I have had a very good season, but it is time for me to write myself a CV. That is why I play football. I get that trophy-winning mindset from Chelsea."

"People in Belgium don't see me playing for Everton, but I am respected in England by fans, managers and experts like Jamie Carragher, Graeme Souness and Thierry Henry."

-Romelu Lukaku; source: Star

He just can't shut his mouth, can he? 

:lol: 2 Times a week he has to moan like this.

Did he actually name drop Chelsea? Surely it's happening then.

Sigh.

I don't think what he said is a hint or anything. It could simply be the truth (look at the way the things our Belgians have said have been interpreted). He spent time at a club where winning titles was expected. A lot of players get this drive throughout their careers.

I'd laugh my head off.

And then people will moan why we didn't buy him, that we are penny pinching and all that shenanigans.

You can never win with the people on this forum.

One thing is spending 65m pound for a player we ultimately don't need and wouldn't add anything to our team.
Another thing is penny pinching on a position such as CB where we are severely lacking in quality.

All I know is that he's a die hard Chelsea fan that grew up with Drogba as his idol and has a room in Belgium filled with Chelsea posters, scarfs and Chelsea shirts. Has a beautiful goalscoring record at the age of 23 and most importantly he's stayed free from injuries in all this time. Loud mouth, but who cares as long as he wants to come back to the club he loves. Might not have the perfect first touch or technique, but no footballer is perfect. He bangs them goals right and left and this is what matters the most. Remember he's just turned 23. Drogba was a complete anonymous at that age. Suarez wasn't far off, too. Give the guy a chance and we might end up with another quality striker for the next 6-7 years.

I think the main problem people have here is the sheer size of the money involved. We are currently light in about 3/4 areas, possibly even more, yet the 65M spoken about could be split in half to fetch in 2/3 players.

Right now Costa remains here, if this continues to be the case then this is a stupid transfer.

True it would be stupid to spend big on him and he right now is not worth near those 65m.

BUT if another big club buys him ala United, city or whoever else and Lukaku suceeds, this thread will crash again because same fans will talk why didnt we pay the money for him and went for cheap alternatives etc etc.

I will remain neutral here, because there is 50% chance Lukaku will end up as Drogba or 50% he will end up a flop. In first case 60m will be nothing, in second even 20m would be too much.

If we buy him so be it, but if the board decides to spend 60m on Lukaku, they better have enough money for top CB and CM.

For that kind of sum it really goes down to a simple question, for me at least: Is he an upgrade on Diego Costa?

Now, I'm one of Costa's biggest critics, but Romelu simply is not better, at least not yet.

Imo true. I see him as prolific, but detrimental for the team performance, sadly...

I too think Diego is currently the better player, but to be honest I think Lukaku would get a similar goal return if given a full season here.

They're so similar as players, though, which is why this doesn't make sense yet until we know what's happening with Costa. By all accents and rumors I've seen Conte is keen to keep him.

Matic business was already stupid. Getting lukaku back for 60m would be fucking hilarious...
