And Hartson feels Chelsea should not have 'dared' to offload the now Everton forward.
And to think that Chelsea didn't want Lukaku!!!! How dare they— John Hartson (@JohnHartson10) March 12, 2016
Meanwhile, Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Graham agreed.
But could the Wolves man be hinting that young players should always be valued by Premier League clubs... like himself at Aston Villa?
Tbf chelsea were mad to sell him in the first place— Jordan Graham (@JordanG_14) March 12, 2016
The issue, of course, is that Chelsea will always feel they were right to let the 22-year-old go - especially for the price Everton offered.
Yes, Diego Costa has had a poor season by his standards. But did his goals not essentially win Chelsea the Premier League last term?
This campaign has been a bad one - but Costa and Chelsea won two trophies last season. That means keeping Lukaku - who didn't want to stay at the club unless he was starting week in, week out - instead of the Spaniard simply wasn't an option.
