How's that effect the Lukaku sistuation then?
He's forever talking about moving on in the media (something Barkley has never done) and he's refused his new contract point blank and stated he won't sign a new deal (not something Barkleys done).
He's buying time/playing the leverage game with Rom. He knows he needs one more year to have any chance to make the CL, which could in turn change Rom's mind about committing to the project long-term.
Whereas with Ross, he just needs to know ASAP, so he knows how many AMs he has to bring in.
Plus, 2 years is different than 1 year. He won't have Rom play out the last year of his deal, either.
