Not sure if that's aimed at me but my point around 30m salary is that in SA there's no tax afaik

And I'm pretty sure Lukaku is not making 10m or 12m net salary at Roma. I doubt Chelsea is paying much if anything.

I don't feel it's about money for Lukaku. Obviously I'm sure each player will try to get as big a salary as they can. He strikes me as someone who wants to be in an environment where he's the main man, the team revolves around him and he doesn't have competition for his place.

If you look throughout his career:
- He chose to leave Chelsea for Everton as he would not be a guaranteed starter for Chelsea.
- He made the move to Manchester United but as soon as Ole replaced Mourinho and Lukaku had to fight for his spot, he pushed for the move.
- With us, he was the main man under Conte. Then he saw a chance to go back to his 'boyhood' club and left despite saying he wants to stay.
- As soon as things got a bit tough (Tuchel wasn't making Lukaku the focal point of his attack), he does the interview, pretty much insulting his 'boyhood' club saying he only wants Inter.
- He re-joins on loan, is a starter with Lautaro for the first 3 games, until his big injury. He starts some games once he recovers in the new year but it takes a while to get back into form at which point Dzeko is a starter for the biggest games.
- Being benched by Dzeko affects him and he rejects the move back looking for a new club where he will be the focal point and Roma ends up being that club

Not sure where I see him next season, given that I don't think Chelsea will allow any more loans and wants 43M for him.

No one is paying more than 20m for him and that’s only happening in a smaller epl team. His time is done

Oh My God, you are guys are getting waaaaaay to philosophical about a guy who thought he was better than Ronaldo\Messi\Zeus\Thor\Odin\God\TheKingOfMilan and then burned all his bridges once he realized he's not and all he needs is attention.

You know it is so hard to make a joke out of him with the things he does, cause he is the joke already.
