Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku flight plans are being finalized as his physical in Italy takes place.
Romelu Lukaku is on the verge of making a sensational comeback to Chelsea.
To formally complete his deal to Chelsea, Romelu Lukaku will fly to London either tonight [Monday] or tomorrow morning [Tuesday]. On Monday, the Belgian allegedly completed his physical in Italy ahead of a £98 million move to Chelsea, which would make the Blues one of the most exciting teams in the Premier League next season.
Lukaku is in high demand after scoring 24 league goals and winning the league title and Serie A player of the year award last season.
Despite losing in the quarter-finals to eventual champions Italy, he looked bright in Euro 2020.
Despite Inter’s best efforts to keep their star striker, it appears like Chelsea has secured his services in a lucrative deal that falls just short of Man City’s new British transfer record, established by signing Jack Grealish last week.
Lukaku’s medical is taking conducted in Italy, according to The Athletic, while the deal’s legalities are completed.
What Tottenham manager Fabio Paratici said to Daniel Levy about the Lautaro Martinez deal
Chelsea supporters should not have to wait long for an official announcement, as the 28-year-old is anticipated to be in London within the next 24 hours.
The Blues are apparently seeking to complete the deal as soon as possible so that Thomas Tuchel can see his new talisman in action in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday.
Lukaku made an unexpected U-turn earlier this summer, saying he was looking forward to Inter defending their Serie A title under new coach Simone Inzaghi.
In Italy, the striker was also treated with the respect he deserved, but in the Premier League, he was frequently subjected to harsh criticism.
Lukaku, on the other hand, will return to England as a new animal, sharper and more ruthless than ever.
In 2014, the Belgian left Chelsea with only 15 goalless appearances to his name. He’ll strut back through the doors as the club’s greatest earner this time.
With Tuchel wanting to bring in a prolific striker after Timo Werner’s disappointing debut season, there’s little doubt he’ll have the chance to demonstrate what he’s made of this time around.
Inter are already on the lookout for a replacement, with Edin Dzeko rumored to be on the top of their wish list.
