 Lukaku is a good and sometimes very good striker, one who can help an average team to the next level. That in no way makes him close to being an elite level player. An elite level player can be the difference in a team between being top four and serious title contenders. A clear difference in level to what Lukaku is capable of doing for a team. Being king of the castle at the worlds richest club that's on the way up and being adored by 50,000 Geordies (which he would be) would be enough to satisfy a player with a big ego.

You and I will have to beg to differ on this. I can't see Lukaku wanting to join any team NOT playing in the Champions League... no matter how many drunken, adoring, Geordies are roaring him on.

I agree but £500k a week could change his mind.

Yeah I saw that on social media too.

That one is all but done IMO.

Odd.

If he's on loan (though CFC announced it as a 'permanent move' at the time) can he be recalled? If not, it's not a loan but a sale with a deferred payment. Maybe something has been lost in translation?

Imho, our number one transfer priority should be to start with the biggest problem and that is Lukaku! We should accept whatever price we can get and I would honestly settle for less than half what we paid for him.

And replace him with who exactly? 

Much like the case last summer, there really isn't a deep pool of proven goalscoring forwards that are obtainable. 

Haaland is off to City and much like Werner and Lukaku thrives in space. Benzama ain't leaving Madrid, nor is Kane joining us. This leaves Lewa, although he preferences Barca by all reports and would only be a temp solution due to age anyway.

After those the drop off is pretty damn steep and like it or not Lukaku is probably the next best out and out striker. Unless you wish to consider the likes of a 32 year old Immobile who can't play outside of Italy, leaving Partrik Schick as arguably the best of the rest. 

The quality of CF's in world football right now is quite grim.
