Why Both Lukaku and Morata Would Suit Chelsea in their Own Way
With every passing day, it’s increasingly likely Chelsea will be crowned champions of England. It’s been an easy ride from the onset, but considering the woes of last season, it would be inconsiderate to undermine Conte's work.
The sailing hasn't always been smooth, it’s being one marred with one of the integral parts of our title quest having reportedly fallen off with the coaching staff. The sails have been adjusted to at least take us to the destination, but beyond that; plans are being made to sort out the problem rather than harbor our beliefs of Diego atoning someday.
Diego's desire to leave Chelsea has being heightened by his inability to absorb the culture shock he's encountered in the UK, and if that is not enough, the constant torment from the media has only fueled his eagerness to leave.
Now more than ever this looks like Diego's last season at the club. He's 28 and at the peak of his powers-Thus, Chelsea would rather sell to a Chinese club and fetch a huge transfer fee than enrich a European rival.
So, with Diego's departure now seeming a question of when rather than if, who should the club prioritize to take over the mantle from the Guvnor?
Per many reputable tabloids, it'll be between Morata and Lukaku. The two have had stellar careers so far. But who would better replace Diego?
He's not the prototypical target man the club has come synonymous with, but a more technically refined footballer. He's had an okay career so far, and mostly that has been in the Champions League where he was a boon in a Juventus side that reached the finals. They eventually lost to Barcelona, but not after he had given the old ladies of Italian football a glimmer of hope.
He's already a technical player, but his grey area is his scoring haul: He's never had an explosive season per se; but his talents have never been in doubt either. If signed, he would bring a technical side of play which we often lack against compact teams.
With Madrid failing to incorporate him ahead of Benzema, we could have an upper hand in enticing him to the bridge.
He was snapped by Chelsea from Anderlecht after taking the Belgian league by storm as a teenager. But after a lack of first team appearance and that penalty miss against Bayern, his fate was sealed; he was sold to Everton and since then he's grown in leaps and bounds.
Like Diego, Lukaku can lead the line with aplomb. He's your ideal target man and a proven premier league goal scorer. The 'first touch' often let's him down, but at his age, he has time to learn as he'll only get better.
They say impossible is nothing in football. If we manage to tie down Diego as some media outlets are reporting, then Morata would suit the situation more. He would bring another dimension to our strike force: his technical side would enable us attack our opponents with conviction and crafty.
If Diego in the end leaves, then Lukaku is the ideal man to replace him. Forget the' first touch', he's a proven premier league goal getter and possesses a similar playing style to Costa.
