According to L'Equipe, OM and Crystal Palace have reached a deal: Palace will pay 38 million euros, plus add-ons and OM will get a percentage if Palace sell him for a profit as well.

As of yet no personal agreement between Batshuayi and Palace though. Belgian media reporting he was hoping to be sold to a better team.

 

As Steve_E said it's 38m EUR, still "only" 31m £ .. (but who knows how many pounds it'll be tomorrow) ... If you'd ask hafnia if he thinks Batshuayi is 3m£ better than Lukaku, I'm betting he'd say yes :).

Marseille had an agreement with Palace, but Batshuayi didn't want to join a team that will be fighting relegation (quote from his father). So he didn't have a personal agreement with Palace.

 

Chelsea reportedly has now offered 40m so still a better deal for Marseille aswell.

whats going on with Beligian footballers and their fathers having a big mouth?! :huh:

I think the common theme is that the fathers of Lukaku, Batshuayi and Fellaini all played professional football themselves.

 

None of them were as successful as their sons though, so maybe they're trying to live their dream of playing for a big club through them.

An awful lot of money for a fairly unproven player, if true at least it looks very unlikely they will be in for Pelle who I'd rather have at a fraction of the cost and look elsewhere to add another possibly hijack Spurs before they bid again on Janssen £15m could do it

He succeeded his medical tests at Chelsea. He's back in training today.

 

I find the mentioned sum very remarkable. It's not presented as a rumor either, it's supposed to be a confirmed fact. On the other hand, the sum wouldn't contain any add-ons. You usually see transfer deals containing some kind of extras like a percentage of his next transfer fee or maybe performance based bonuses. None of that here, so that might explain the unusually high sum, OM probably just want their money up front.

Ask hafnia how much lukaku is worth based on his performances over the past 25 games and he would say £8m quid would be generous and that would be for his chelsea game alone. Fuckin shite.

Just think about this for a moment. The author claims that our manager is planning to speak with the Chelsea manager. How on earth would he know that? Did he get Silva drunk down the pub to loosen his lips? Even if true, no manager in his right mind would broadcast the fact. I’m guessing this is a complete fabrication to generate clicks.

Dint get the fuss on this lad, goals per game is poor, needs a lot of chances, not a natural finisher like the lad who went to Leicester from city iheanacho very over rated. 

We need a fox in the box we have enough athletes. 

Understand if hes cheap, but would not excite me one bit.

I don’t believe for one minute that he’d cost £14m - probably double that. Given we’d be getting rid of Tosun and Niasse to sign him - then I’d be delighted. He’s by no means the finished product but he’s young and fits the bill much better than what we’ve got currently. Think he’s much further on than Calvert-Lewin but of the 3 out and out strikers DCL is the one with a future here.

Don’t rate him myself. Always seemed a poor mans Lukaku substitute. Don’t think he’s any better than what we have.....

But... he still is young and at that price, worth a shot.

I dont think he is too disimilar to Lukaku when he first came to us. More of a powerful athlete than a technically gifted footballer but he scores goals and he has a presence about him. 

At that price, or anywhere near it, its a no brainer.
