the exit door is open for Romelu Lukaku!
And if we held there the soap opera of the summer in England and Italy? We were already saying the same thing last summer, and finally, Lukaku had indeed left Lombardy to return to London. Only his second adventure with the Blues was not a great success, he who scored only 8 goals in 26 league appearances, not helped by physical glitches. For weeks already, it has been said that Thomas Tuchel would not necessarily count on him, but above all, that the main concerned would dream of a return to transalpine lands.
Earlier in the day, the Italian press revealed that meetings were going to take place during the day on the side of Stamford Bridge. Todd Boehly, the new boss of the Blues, was to discuss Thomas Tuchel about the workforce and the wishes of the German for the transfer window. And obviously, a decision has been made regarding the future of the Red Devil.
Inter in dreams
As explained Sky Italia, Chelsea are ready to let slip the Belgian striker. The London team thus agrees to let him return to Italy, and is open to a loan. It must be said that a transfer is difficult given the sums discussed – it had cost 115 million euros a year ago – but a one-year loan seems quite possible. When we know that Thomas Tuchel should have full powers in terms of recruitment and construction of the team, we imagine that it was he who gave the final green light.
It therefore remains to agree on the terms of a loan with the Milanese, who have only good memories of Lukaku, a major element of the title gleaned during the 2020/2021 financial year. And it’s mutual, so the agreement between the Serie A formation and the former Anderlecht would not be a problem a priori. We should know more in the next few weeks…
