How was Lukaku not a great deal? We sold him for $50mil more than what we paid for him, and he carried us to the league.Conte asked and received Lukaku, Valentino Lazaro, Victor Moses, Ashley Young, Arturo Vidal and Aleksandar Kolarov.
The likes of Sanchez, Barella, Sensi, Eriksen, Godin, Darmian and Hakimi were not his choices.
I think group 2 is far better.
Vidal was decent at best, very streaky.
Lazaro was a failure.
Lukaku was great statistically but not really a great deal.
Kolarov was a weak transfer.
Young was decent for maybe 12-14 months, but nothing special.
Moses was okay for depth as a quick fix.
Marotta was saying in both 2019-20 and 2020-21 that our target was not the Scudetto, even when we were first with a healthy advantage.
Marotta was saying in 2021-22 that Scudetto was our goal from day 1, even if the team had regressed.
