3. Lukaku’s loyalty is to Conte, not Tottenham
If Spurs make a big-money splash and win the Lukaku sweepstakes, what happens when Conte leaves the club? Lukaku is clearly not devoted to Tottenham, which would inevitably cause long-term heartache.
One has to be completely sure when spending nearly a £100 million on a player that he won’t just up and leave when he sees fit, like he’s currently doing at Chelsea. Lukaku is too unpredictable to invest so much and would leave Tottenham without a second thought once the Italian gaffer departs north London. Rest assured, at some point Conte will leave for a new, exciting opportunity and purchasing a flash-in-the-pan player who is always looking for his next move would have serious negative long-term implications for Tottenham.
