Apparently Zhang's said no to 10m loan fee + covering full wage.

Grande Zhang. Chelsea can fuck off if they want any more money for Lukaku, having someone to cover a part of the wage should be more than enough for them.

I'm not sure that's significantly worse than spending 100M transfer fees and salaries for Lazaro, Correa, Dzeko, Vidal, Kolarov, and Sanchez.
Sanchez is a good player don't put him on the same list as those geniuses)

Transfer fees are definitely much lower than 100mln though.

Also what kind of a shit show of a club would we be if we let our directors negotiate terms just to have the ceo/owner shut it down? Why would we waste our directors time like this?
Wasn't this the what happened in the Spina/Politano swap deal few years ago. Ausilio negotiated everything and the players going to airports, then Marotta decided to renegotiate again?

So I wouldn't put it past us for it to happen again if I'm being honest.

We want to save every cent apparently. 3-4m€ for Bellanova loan instead of 8-10m€. 4m€ for Asllani loan instead of 13-14m€. Now haggling over few millions in Lukaku deal.

I think it's gonna be 8m + bonuses.

If in the end this is what saves Skriniar it’s worth it. Seems to me like that’s unlikely though.

Probably has nothing to do with Skriniar sale. In Skriniar sale we are making tens of millions of plusvalenza. Few millions here and there in this deal don't make a difference unfortunately. I guess we just want to lower all the costs any means possible so we just haggle for everything.

Should use the same method when selling Skriniar.

Well the thought is if we can scrap for savings on a few of these deals the amount we need to profit this Mercato is less. So maybe a Dumfries plus fringe players gets it done. Realistically though Marotta made it pretty clear today what’s eventually going to happen. I’ll stay optimistic till the end though for Skriniar. I could have lived with Bastoni as much as it would have hurt but Skriniar…that one would really hurt.

Anyways this is Lukaku thread. Welcome back Big Rom. I’ll be really interested to see if there is obvious friction with the team accepting him back. Also the first time he gets benched for Lautaro - Dybala how does he act? Who of the 3 is the odd man out in the big games?

My belief is now it will be Skriniar AND Dumfries if we get high enough offer for him.

And yeah, good to have Lukaku back in Dzeko's place.

It will be Lautaro-Dybala as starters with Lukaku as sub since he is in a very weak position. We can ditch him anytime since he is merely a loaned player (if we don't pay full annual wage) and he has to think twice before burning another bridge. When he falls out with three consecutive clubs then everyone knows he is the problem.

You known damn well that won't be the case. Lukaku will be the starter, just like Dzeko was for as long as he simply couldn't be played anymore.

If it was one or the other, I think I'd pick Lukaku. Way less risk long term. Well short term too as Lukaku probably guarantees 20 league goals. Dybala might be great, might be injured or not fit half the season.

But I feel we gonna sign both.
