The Times are reporting that Man Ure have beaten Chelsea to the signing of Lukaku for a mere £100m. The fee involves Wayne Rooney going the other way for £10m.
They must have been gutted at missing out on Danny Ward.

It's ok, they can console themselves with the rumours that Lambert is on the way to them. coat

The money involved is just sick and completely out of control.

I know! Lambert had £2mil left on his contract! He wasn't worth that. Leo Fortune-West on the other hand...

I have no problem with the amount of money generated for or by the beautiful game. It's the way it is used that is all wrong.

Well said TDA. It's clear that you're so much older than the rest of us with wise words like that.

All but arrested in LA for excessive noise at a house party where he was staying. Due to appear in court there, but obviously just another spoiled rich kid (oick)........ I guess that Rhys and I are both right......

I realised how stupid the money in football is getting when people started discussing how much Zohore is worth after half a good season - consensus was ten million!
