Former Real Madrid star Antonio Cassano, who has admitted ‘loving’ Barcelona, has vowed to boycott their games in the event that they sign Romelu Lukaku. The striker has endured an awful season since returning to Chelsea in a club-record move from Inter Milan during last summer’s transfer window.
He has scored just five goals within the Premier League up to now this campaign, falling well wanting expectations. That has led to intense speculation that he end his second spell on the Blues after only one season.
Inter and Barca have each been linked with moves for the unhappy 28-year-old. But former Los Blancos striker Cassano has questioned Lukaku’s suitability for Xavi’s squad, making the remarkable vow to never go to a game again in the event that they sign him.
“I’m in love with Barca’s philosophy, but in the event that they sign Lukaku I won’t watch a game anymore. He can’t play three passes with Chelsea where he has no competition, at Barcelona they play 55 passes before going for goal, how could he do it?” Cassano told BoboTV.
