Hammers £80m lynchpin

Romelu_Lukaku_3156402bWest Ham’s nemesis Romelu Luka looks certain to leave Everton this summer and has revealed that he has already made a decision about his next move.
Chelsea are eager to bring the big Belgian back to Stamford Bridge and are working hard to beat rivals Manchester United and are said to be willing to pay up to £80m although Everton are said to value him at £100m despite buying him from Chelsea for £28m in 2014.
That means the 24-year-old, who is currently on £80,000-a-week at Goodison Park, will pocket over £150,000-a-week for his return to West London.Manchester United are said to be willing to hand him £200,000-a-week at Old Trafford but they are aware of Lukaku’s wish to move back to west London.With all big transfers, there is likely to a domino effect with Lukaku’s move to Chelsea could act as a lynchpin. Not only will Everton have £80m to spend in the transfer market but Chelsea is more likely to entertain a bid for Michy Batshuayi from West Ham.

    Or they will entertain an offer from Everton for him… as they have just done business.
    Everton will need a striker and then Batshuayi will be plucked from us…
    Same old West Ham

    You can’t blame West Ham for this. That could be part of the deal that Lakaku goes one way while while Bats goes the other. Nothing to do with us and nothing we can do about it. Stop being so f**** negative about your club!!!!!

    If Lukaku was really serious about scoring goals he should sign for us, imagine how many goals he would score at home based on his previous form of scoring a goal a game at West Ham, he would have a minimum 19 a season just in the home games he could score as many as Messi and Ronaldo 😉

    They won’t sell Michy they will loan and we need a striker we have outright noI buyback or loan.
    Henry Onyekuku scored more than Michy at 23 and Lukaku at 20 with 25 goals and in a team battling relegation.
    He has magic feet and the pace and can finish. And is only £7.86m so we can still sign Kelechi and another like Kruse or Timo.
    Think Bilic has reservations about Michy and he is a good striker I just think for future the Loan game isn’t going to work and if they would sell him it would be at #35m plus we could get Modeste for £26m and offers a diff game the Kelexhi big like AC but looks a lot more comfortable on with his feet
