Of course, but it won't be a huge signing on fee as if he was a feebie.
Look at the bigger picture. We have signed half a team for the amount we're likely to get from the sale of Lukaku. I'm sure we can afford to write off 20 million for the sake of a proven premiership striker who can come into the team and do the job instantly. And it won't even be a write off because our chances for success are greater. We get a striker who would probably score 80% of the goals Lukaku does, plus is more of a team player which will be vital to the way we play.
This really is a no brainer. Older, proven, experienced forwards as the one's I've mentioned, can still do a job.
The bigger picture would see us buying someone who was entering their prime not leaving it.
There's a risk of tying down a 31 year old to a very long contract that the next manager in in two years really has no plans for so he's left draining our wage bill while we've got no way of recuperating anything. We've seen it before when the tv money started rolling in and we did this sort of thing with Campbell and Ferguson and soon regretted it. We're even seeing it now at Utd with Rooney.
We don't need to make the same mistakes over and over again. The only way we'll bridge the gap to the richer teams above us is by being smart with our money, not by being cavalier and throwing it about at anyone.
