£32m for Lukaku! Chelsea having a laugh.

Posted on June 18, 2014 by Random Spurs Supporter

It has been reported that Chelsea have placed a £32m price tag on their unwanted Belgian for Romelu Lukaku, the same figure as was reported they are paying for Diego Costa of Atletico Madrid. With only two years left on his current contract and with another season of uncertainty ahead of him, loaned out to yet another club, the figure quoted seems  quite ridiculous for a player clearly not likely to figure in Mourinho’s plans for some time if ever.

Though he is a young player with huge potential £32m is a sum associated with players that are the finished product and that have seen it and done it. Tottenham have a history of paying very decent money for young players with huge potential, Modric, Bale and Lamela spring to mind immediately but Lukaku still represents a gamble and at £32m even if he is very successful there is no profit to be made, in fact if he doesn’t fulfil his potential simply a huge loss.

Bonyand Benteke probably represent just as much potential and at fees that won’t break the bank nor the wage structure. The figure quoted for Lukaku following the sale of Luiz for £50m and even the £37m United paid for Mata seem incredibly excessive, Chelsea have picked up arguably better players in Costa for £32m and Fabregas for less than £30m while their selling prices seem quite ludicrous.

If £32m is true we can put to bed the idea that Lukaku will be heading to Tottenham this summer and at least the club can begin to look elsewhere if they are in fact  actually looking for a new striker.

    If spurs had any sense they would side step lukaku and go for bony ,same type of striker for much cheaper.

      Totally agree with you on that one, Bony will cost half that and will not help the chavs fund other buys or assist with FFP. £32m for a player they don’t consider to be good enough is a joke and will never happen.
