Happy for him, he thinks he is a super star because he was able to outspeed 70 years old Parolos and Magnanellis in Serie A, let him flop with his unidimensional football. He's not good enough for Chelsea to completely change their style of play just for him and he is too full of himself and honestly too old now to change his own style.

He'll soon start to put on weight and it will be over.

When Lukaku got injured i posted this.



It was really predictable. Lukaku had always been a panic move for Chelsea after failing to sign Haaland and not a very thoughtful choice. Tuchel wasn't willing to adjust to Lukaku, like Conte did, but instead he was expecting Lukaku to adjust to Chelsea and it hasn't worked so far. Based on Lukaku's stint at Man Utd, he doesn't take getting benched well and if the situation doesn't change he will try to force a move to another club. Sadly for him it won't be easy. Marina is a tough negotiator and she won't accept offers much lower than his transfer fee so the only viable option for him would be a loan move to another club. But even that would be difficult because of his massive wages. In EPL only Tottenham could be an option but Abramovich has a very bad relationship with Levy. Outside EPL only a very small number of teams could afford his wages and i doubt any of them would be interested.

The only way Inter would go for Lukaku is if he became available on loan and Chelsea were willing to pay most of his salary. Very unlikely scenario. Else, Lukaku chapter is closed for Inter.
Can see Rube making a move for him if he's a available on loan.

Haven't seen him playing much at Chelsea. But from what I've read, they use him in the centre, kinda like Džeko is playing and expect him to do things that Džeko does , lol. Because he is big and can hold the ball, so he must be battling with defenders... Well, he is strong one-on-one, not one-on-more defenders. He needs to play more wide on the right. And then magic starts to happen. Or they can play him out of position, he will lose confidence and becomes bad even in situations he would otherwise dominate.

And the best thing is, they blame it on slowness of Serie A, that he was thriving here. He would do the same in Prem, if he was coached by Conte.

Marina won't do deals like that. She spent 115M€ Abramovich cash on him, giving him on loan on the first year out of 5 year contract. It will be only sale.

But fuck em. Pastorello is already auctioning him in Serie A, says " Lukaku loved Serie A, he will be back" and obv Tuttoshit clawed on the headlines. Look at this :



WHAT HAPPENED IN THE FAIRY TALE CLUB? ( lolz)

Do you guys, who accuse him of betraying us, realize that, had we not sold him we'd have had even bigger problems with our finances? We had to make sales for 90M and reduce our wage, departure of Haki and Lukaku were the measures taken. If Lukaku stayed, we wouldn't be able to offer better contracts for Barella, Lautaro, Brozo or Hakan.

Lukaku sale is one of the best news in the last mercato.

Pastorello words aren't to be taken lightly. He had said Lukaku is going to leave Man Utd in May, 3 months before it actually happened so don't be surprised if Lukaku returns to Italy next summer.

Like i had said, Lukaku doesn't take bench well and sooner or later he will try to force a move. Italy is probably his best option as he still has a great name in the league. The problem for Lukaku is his current salary is massive and he isn't known to be willing to take a paycut in order to join a club. Even when he was in a very toxic environment for him (Man Utd) he demanded the same salary at his new club.

The only Italian club that could afford his salary is perhaps Juventus but it could only be a loan move. Marina doesn't give discounts and Juve aren't going to spend 100m for Lukaku.

also
(a) he wont be benefitted by the growth decree as he isnt 2 years out of Italy
(b) there's no way Chelsea will take a major loss on him after one season

I dont think he can leave chelsea within 2 seasons even.

Reliable Chelsea journalist Nizaar Kinsella reported yesterday Juve have offered De Ligt to Chelsea as they want to get rid of his massive salary. I don't think it's a coincidence Pastorello spoke specifically about a return to Italy for Lukaku now. Perhaps Juve are going to offer a Lukaku-De Ligt swap deal?

Even in that case, the issue of Lukaku massive salary would remain for Juve. Like you say, he won't qualify for Growth Decree so we're talking about over 20m gross per year for Juve.
