    Why don't we swap Ivan for Juan Mata instead of Lukaku. Makes mor sense to me.

    The price is solely because he played in the EPL.
    Hey man if there are four teams from that league in the finals of the two of the biggest european competitions, and your player is one of the top scorers in mentioned league, then you get to have some leverage. It doesn't correlate exactly to the objective quality of lukaku, but its certainly one of the indicators.

    The prices were high even at times when English teams crashed at the quarter finals. CL has nothing to do with it, it's purely PL marketing bullshit.

    Man there are a lot of comments here on Lulaku, and especially on his first touch. I don't know why that keeps getting emphasised so much.

    My simple opinion of him is - he is a fantastic all-round striker, can score from inside as well as outside the box, can combine well with others, and also be very useful in moving around the pitch, getting into positions on the wing and all. Yes, he needs to lose weight, and the valuation being sought is too high. If that comes down, then he would be a good guy.

    Regarding first touch and dribbling, he has something that Icardi just doesn't. Icardi relies on getting rid of the ball on the first touch every single time. Lukaku here, and other strikers like Dzeko, Kane, Mandzukic, Benzema, and most others contribute something that helps the team in getting others into position and help keep possession.

    I don't think he said Lukaku is better than Icardi but certainly not as bad as some people make him out here.

    Fair enough, but he is as bad as people make him out here; even many man utd fans want him out because he sucks (not because emotional reason like icardi). He is basically the perisic of man utd.

    ADR said Lukaku was a beast in Everton but he was a different player in Man Utd. You can't deny Lukaku was a top notch when he was in Everton with 87 goals in 166 matches.

    And ADR was right that Icardi would only dream of passing 3 players before scoring.

    Edit: He is 26. In football, there have been many examples of players have one or two bad seasons then once they move to a new league or clubs, they become a great player once again.

    No doubt, Lukaku was a beast when he was at everton but dont forget that he wasnt a fatso then;he is now. Weight issue isnt something that one can shrug off. Another player affected by weight gain is the amazing 36 goal-Piguain.

    While i dont doubt,can you give me examples? Because i can give you an example of a player who was a good player,had 3 bad seasons and then moved to inter and he was still shit : Stevan Jovetic. In case you haven't noticed, helping players to rediscover their form isn't in Inter's forte for the past 8 years.

    English teams being in the final (for the first time since I cant remember how many years) has nothing to do with the fact that EPL do overpay for players insanely. Just check the amount of players who got sold for 50m and above and got flopped. In 2011 Liverpool bought Andy Carroll for 50 fucking million. He went on to score 6 times in 44 games. Danilo of Real who was a flop joined City for 30m.

    Imo price is never an indicator of player’s quality in the EPL. He is a good striker but he was and will never be even a 50m player.

    Lukaku in Man U has 42 goals and 13 assists for 7000min (about 78 games). That means a goal every 166 min. i don't see how this is a failure.

    Arjen Robben.
    Mohamed Salah.
    Kevin De Bruyne.

    Walter Samuel.
    Wesley Sneijder.
    Esteban Cambiasso.

    I'm not saying that he will be a beast again but it cannot be ruled out as well. He is only 26 years old, the very same age as Icardi. He is not even at his peak as a player yet. I have to be honest that I don't follow Man Utd that much, but statistically he has only been bad this season. Last season he scored 27 goals. However, Icardi has managed to have a worse season than Lukaku, does that mean Icardi won't be a great player anymore? Icardi couldn't even score into empty net at least twice in the last 6 months.

    We probably haven't rediscovered any players form in the last 8 years but we certainly have managed to ruin many more talents. Not sure why you pointed out anyway.

    Well that kinda comes with the territory when you have money to spend and you are the richest league in the world, you will see great concentration of quality players like we see today in EPL, probably the best of any league, and then you will have flops like caroll...but the point is they are the best league in the world right now, and its only partly because of the marketing or some undeserved hype.

    Regarding price, I wouldn't say it's never an indicator of players quality, because for every caroll, danilo, shevcenko, you have silvas, agueros, van dijk, alison....and much more, but you get a point....

    And Lukaku is definitely worth 50 million, I don't know what the fuck are you talking about in that regard.

    Falcao's law aside, what is your opinion towards him as a Belgian? Serie A is far from being a tactical conundrum of 90s and I am totally sure that the player from any top5 league can succeed at calcio.

    I've expressed my opinion about Lukaku on the first page. I think he can succeed here, but I'm skeptical. Lukaku relies on his speed, power and wingers/creative midfielders. It's easy to score for Belgium when you got De Bruyne, Eden and Thorgan Hazard, Meunier, .. delivering accurate passes and crosses. If our offer is 10m + Perisic, sure. Go for it, if it's anything above that fee, leave it be and focus on Jovic, Werner, ...

    Long story shorter, He can succeed in a good system that's beneficial for him. If not, he's not going to be good fit and waste a lot of money
