Romelu Lukaku has been linked with a move away from Chelsea this summer and one possible destination which has been named is Barcelona.
However, the idea of Lukaku at Barcelona does not seem to appeal to ex-Inter Milan striker Antonio Cassano, who made some scathing comments on the matter.
He said (via TuttoMercatoWeb): “I’m in love with Barça’s philosophy, but if they take Lukaku, I won’t watch another game!
“He can’t make three passes with Chelsea where he has 0 competition; at Barcelona, they make 55 before going on goal; how does he manage with that?”
The three passes statement is exaggerated but not far away from the truth either as Lukaku has often cut an isolated figure up top for Chelsea.
For example, Lukaku had just seven touches against Crystal Palace a while ago, the fewest in a single Premier League game for a player with 90+ minutes played since this date was recorded.
