Not an excuse, just logic. How much do you realistically think we will get for a 34 year old 1 dimensional forward? at least with llorente he is technically superior and has more use than just the big lump upfront
dude we began this season with how many first team players who cant be registered for the CL that are still on the books? after selling the 1 home grown for way under his value? then, inexplicably, we attempted to swap Dybala for lukaku. freaking dybala for lukaku!
No he was released for free. His goal against us in last matchday of group stage cost us dearly though. We advanced in second place and lost to Bayern, while that awful City side, which we beat twice, danced their way into semis.
