but only if you pick the right club, some are a lot shadier with how they pay out wages

sure, but my point is still - the people in here putting so much moral superiority over lukaku can look themselves in the mirror, not a single person here would turn down 30m in saudi if it was offered.

Well, atleast people here that you call wouldnt brag to media about loving their bosses and being faitfull and loyal fan of the job and firm where they work while simultenously negotiating with other firm that represents and stands for everything your current firm is fighting against. So yes, Lukaku is a fucking fraud and piece of shit.

People here consider Lukaku and other top players enough rich to turn down offers from Saudi Arabia while being part of the big european clubs and are fighting for titles. I would support going there in the end of your career for one last big paycheck.

TBH I think a lot of people here will turn it down, if their current salary is already 12M.

Also I understand some people believe they can quantify all values in the unit of some form of money, but I don't truly believe everything can be converted into monetary value or it is even transferable in the first place.
Extreme examples are how much are you willing to give up you and your family's life? Or how much will you take to amputate all your limps and remove of your eyes.
In some cases the answer can even be 0 dollars, cause some people kill their family and suicide, but if you are in a decent condition, then how much?

Also political stability and safety issues.

This is a complicated subject, but to simplified to:
not a single person here would turn down 30m in saudi if it was offered

It is just way oversimplifying to justify Lukaku pathetic talk.

Doubt it very much, if you had three years left in your career. 36m Vs 90m.

The argument only gets stronger with more time. 4 years is ,48m Vs 120m

If your argument stands, there shouldn't be any top European football left, every talent, especially those who are younger should go Saudi and play till they retire.
Why even try to approach the ones that are about to retire.

nah, to be fair, for a lot of people awards makes sense. Lukaku's unlikely to ever be in a team where he'll win big again.

Anyway, that wasnt really my point, my point was all the people in here showing morale outrage makes me laugh, half you mofos would drop all your moral principles for a £100k a year salary I bet.

His current salary is 20M Euros. You're all confusing gross with net.


Anyway, whatever. I'm sure Roma will lose him with the growth decree gone, and clearly Lukaku is sucking up to the only realistic option remaining for him (besides staying at Chelsea).
