Fine.
I wonder if we could've sold him in June if he didn't say that "100% Inter" bullshit.
I don't think this is what stopped Chelsea from making a move for Lukaku in June. Their top target always was Haaland. They took their time hoping Dortmund would lower their demands. The Germans didn't so Chelsea turned to their only realistic alternative, Lukaku. Now it's Lukaku or no one for them.

Bingo. Especially considering Sancho moved and the financial pressure is very different now.

Yep that's right, but if I remember correctly Man City was also interested.
Anyways, June or July was the right time to sell him, or any of our starters really, this is just so late...

He is gone 100%...Chelsea and Inter only need to agree on the price...knowing Inter, we will not get anything near 130m€...probably something like 110m€ max with some bonuses included

I heard people talking about this, to ensure the foreigner wage decree could be ratified.

But I don't trust they have the brains to do that. After selling Lukaku, they'll get hit with an additional tax fee, furthering the burden on our finances, because they sold him a day prior to being eligible for the wage decree.

Not only that...People forget that we also took a 275m€ loan from Oaktree, that needs to be repaid in 3 yrs or something like that...so yeah, it will take us a while to recover.

So the recent reports are basically the same recycled rubbish over and over again. They just change the price a little bit and throw the same 3,4 names as who's the "TOP TARGET" of the day for Inter as Lukaku's replacement.

Better take a break from the news until this deal is sealed. Hopefully soon.

Its typical news for Inter. Inter insisted for 80 mio for Hakimi but end up with 60+8. Now, we thought it was 130 mio and that was a great number but it is likely we will end up at 115 mio.

Chelsea is desperate but it appears we are even more desperate to get the money, smh.

I think we already agreed the numbers with Chelsea and we are just stalling while we are negotiating with other clubs for replacement.

According to Pedulla, Lukaku has asked not to play against Parma.
But but we are forcing him out? That's why he doesn't want to play against Parma. He did the same thing when he was trying to push for a move at man utd

I think it's quite clear Lukaku was in favor of the move. I don't blame the guy. It's the last big contract of his career and Chelsea offered him crazy money. But let's not make him the victim who was forced out of the club.

Exactly my point, I would argue that he'd be stupid not to want to move. It's all bussiness guys, he got his chip winning the scudetto and he needs to win something bigger like CL. He choked with Belgium and we won't be winning CL anytime soon so..
