    I have seen enough bad first touches or passes from Icardi to make a compilation. The reason why he has no compilation is because he just isn't that famous to begin with. Shittier league, shittier club,..

    Could easily put together a compilation of Icardi trying to dribble and make him look like a Serie C player

    Try to answer this question: what can Icardi do but Lukaku cannot?
    Lukaku plays for his national team, while icardi can only dream of it.

    Fun to follow how people slowly prime themselves to this horrible deal so that they wont be devastated when it happens. Next week Lukaku is one of the best five strikers in the world and by then you strongly feel that Icardi has always been holding us back.

    Proceed.

    From the comments: Lukaku looks like an ex footballer playing in a charity game

    All teams have fitness coaches, all teams also have players like 9G and Higuain who do what the hell they want when they get home. Ultimately the players fitness is up to the player. Some take it more seriously than others.

    Lukaku might have some trouble to do something with the ball before he loses it as defenders in Italy tend to make spaces way more tight than in England.

    Icardi has been the leagues best goal scored twice and there are not many players who can match his goal instinct.
    Being the player with the best conversion rate in all of Europe last season says quite a lot. He just needs less chances then others, and he didnít have that many to begin with as coaches figured out Spallettis tactics pretty quickly.

    Letís not forget he is a certified big game player. He is the guy with the most goals against Rube that is currently playing in Serie A, always seems to score against Milan (apart from that game where he missed the open goal twice ). Has a decent record against Roma and Lazio too.
    Lukaku as others have mentioned is more of a flat track bully, his goal record against the big teams is quite forgettable.
    If we want a striker that can score against any opposition, I'd rather have Icardi in the team.

    While I am not saying Lukaku is a bad player (anyone can have a bad season), I just donít think he is the right guy for us, not for that price at least.

    Edit: If Conte goes for the 3-5-2 and Icardi is in fact going to Rube, I'd like to exchange him with Dybala. We'd have Dybala, Lautaro and Politano upfront and call me crazy but I would try to get Dzeko as a short time solution for about 15 mil if thatís possible. I know it doesnít look amazing, but I'd rather use the rest of the ĄLukaku moneyď to reinforce a different position.
    Take off your inter spectacles and watch these videos.

    Lukaku is 3 levels below Icardi regarding finishing.It's not even remotely close.
    No I don't, nor do I think this season Lukaku is Lukaku down the road.

    I think people are underrating Lukaku. He is not as bad as you guys claim. He is not 70-80 mils player per se, but he is good enough to be part of this Inter. Is he better than Icardi? I don't think he is overall, but has his strengths over him.

    Sure we want to challenge and beat juBe next season with this guy who barely managed to even touch the ball in 2 matches against them.

    And to get him, we're gonna get rid of the player who scored against juBe more often than not. Classic!

    Stats aside this is the main difference between the two - Icardi was useful in big games, Lukaku is gonna be our flat track bully. At best.

    I agree that I would prefer an Icardi of last years over having Lukaku, but let's be honest Icardi is NOT staying and we shouldn't want him to stay either. He refused to play for months faking an injury, disrupts the dressing room and is now pushing for a move to juve who tries to get him as cheap as possible.

    Concerning Icardi, I would rather have him rot in our reserve squad for the upcoming 2 years and lose him for free afterwards than selling him to Juventus. If we can sell him to another club, great.

    That said: there is no need to compare both strikers anymore, one wants to go to our arch rivals and one wants to come here. The real question is, knowing Icardi will not be in our line-up next year, who do you want as our main striker? And to that question, Lukaku isn't a bad answer.
