Gabriele Marcotti is maybe our favourite pundit.
He knows about football, he knows about European football, and he understands the financial mechanics of football. Plus he can explain it all in an entertaining way.
That’ makes him the perfect person to explain the precarious Romelu Lukaku situation, as he did for ESPN in their show this week.
We still think it’s pretty financially impossible to engineer, as Marcotti says, but there’s always a level of desperation he could reach which might make it feasible.
If he hates it at Chelsea as much as it looks like he does, maybe he really will go?
