Romelu Lukaku returned to Chelsea at the beginning of the season to cross some Ts and dot some Is after failing to cut it in his first spell at the club that brought him into Europe's top five leagues. His agent Federico Pastorello has now revealed City had the chance to sign him but did not.
The striker which City were focused on and eventually missed is Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane who was forced to stay at Tottenham despite Tottenham receiving a bid and claiming it failed under their valuation of the English striker.
Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku are both of the same age with similar levels of play in terms of goals. Lukaku edges Kane in trophies won as Harry Kane is yet to win a senior club trophy, a feat Lukaku has achieved.
Harry Kane has played 428 games in his career, scored 255 goals and assisted a further 66 while Romelu Lukaku has played 530 games, scored 263 goals and assisted another 86 goals. Harry Kane has a net worth of $40m while Lukaku has a net worth of $20m.
