The Lukaku music has been resounding everywhere. Everyone has aired his or her view and this is mine.
Lukaku (the media practitioner) is or was touted to be the next D² (Didier Drogba), but his attitude really sulks. He has been in bed with the media ever since he went on loan at Everton and has refused to show respect to his employers.
We all know what he has said and I don't have to go back on that. There were rumours he is being prepared to be loaned for one more season to get ripped. The likes of Atletico Madrid, Everton, Tottenham, Juventus and Wolfsburg are believed to be interested in his services but Chelsea and Mourinho (including me) are unwilling to give our 21 year old striker another loan opportunity.
Lukaku has had successful loan spells at WBA and Everton. His agent confirmed this by saying;
"Chelsea doesn't want to loan him out, he has two years left on his contract and we would normally look at extending it."
The talent he has is incredible but instead of waiting to do that at the Bridge, he`S rather marketing himself. He claimed he is a complete striker and is not ready to play a second fiddle.
The signing of Costa has enraged him as he ruminates he can lead the Blue army into glory, so there is no need to sign Costa. His own words claim that we shouldn't have signed Costa because he can do all what Costa can do and even more.
Now he is a complete striker (as he claimed) and I will want Chelsea to give him the opportunity to prove his completeness on the playing field. I don't doubt his qualities and nobody can doubt that, however, he is still young and has to keep mute and do the talking on the blue pitch.
One thing I think he is forgetting is Chelsea is not like WBA or Everton that you come and shine at once; you have to learn and adapt with hard work. Torres was one of the best at Atletico and Liverpool but is nowhere to be found at Chelsea. Drogba had to use one or two seasons to adapt and that is what I will recommend for Lukaku.
The guy has great talent and I would want Jose to give him the opportunity to show that. There is no need sending him on loan even if he signs a new contract. Why? Because he is better than Torres and Ba combined. Torres has been a liability to us and we have to give Lukaku the chance to be our second striker.
