Hindsight is a wonderful thing, it allows you to look back at a situation after it has happened and decide whether it was a good idea or not.
The Romelu Lukaku signing for £100m was CLEARLY a terrible idea, but at the time many Chelsea fans might not have though it was. Some did, absolutely, but largely, it was a celebrated signing.
Fast-forward a year and the guy wants to jump ship after downing tools, it’s been proven to be a terrible idea. So who’s idea was it?
Well, according to transfer insider Dean Jones, there was some at Chelsea who didn’t think signing Lukaku would be a good idea. However, owner Roman Abramovich and director Marina Granovskaia apparently did think it was a good idea.
Jones, speaking to Give Me Sport yesterday, was speaking on the Lukaku situation with it being such a hot topic right now.
“You go back and look at the [Romelu] Lukaku situation last summer, there were definitely some people around Chelsea that didn’t think that was a good idea, but Abramovich did and Granovskaia did and it hasn’t worked out.”
