Thats not for me to convince, thats the responsibilty of the board and Moshiri.
Lukaku talked about ambition, what the club should have done was push the boat all out this season and convince 2-3 star players to join and tell Lukaku we want to go places your staying we will bring those players to help you fulfill those ambitions.
Are we continually just going to be a run of the mill club just going through the motions every season and saying ' oh it will be better next season'
The club at somepoint have to say this what we want and we are going to prepare for it.
All they are preparing for this season is another borefest of 7th place at best.
That's easy to say but what reasons could they use to convince the elite players to join us?
Can we pay twice as much as the current elite teams in the league to make them join us? No
Can we say to players we are in the champions league? No
Have we been in the CL so players think it's worth joining us? No
Have we been regulars in Europe like Spurs have been for the last decade? No
Have we been regularly competing for trophies so that players think they can win things with us? No.
The fact is elite level players have a lot of choice and even in England there are 6 clubs above us who elite level players will look at and think they are all better placed to achieve top goals.
City were able to get better players than their level when they made a go of things and that was because they could blow teams away financially. United offered tevez 150k a week, they paid him 250k a week. They offered David silva, toure huge money because they had an unlimited pot of money effectively and no FFP to consider. Plus because they could pay to attract players like Robinho it makes players think they are serious they are going to pay what it takes to become an elite team.
Chelsea were already in the CL when abramovich took over, they had a good team to start with to build on.
I can't think of a reason why even someone like an abaumayang would have come to us and he isn't ultra elite level, same with Werner. Players will look at will I play champions league football, will I earn top money, will I win trophies and those factors they can all get at plenty of clubs over us right now. We might match the money or maybe even a bit more but we can't offer enough for them to ignore the other factors. Which is why kolasinic bild saying we offered him 180k a week, arsenal 145k a week he still goes there because of the other factors.
We have to buy well still, we have to find some players on the rise before they become that level mixed with players we know what we will get who can push us closer to the teams above. Unfortunately for us the timing is such with ffp, the level of teams above us and our lack of recent successes means it isn't going to be a quick fix of lets buy top players because they just won't come.
