Chelsea make Romelu Lukaku decision

Chelsea have made a decision on the future of Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku was sold to Inter Milan in 2019 from Manchester United.

The Belgian had an impressive first stint with the Serie A side, scoring 23 and assisting two in 36 league ties in 2019/20. He then netted 24 and assisted 10 in 36 league matches during 2020/21 when Inter were crowned Serie A champions.

Chelsea bought Lukaku from the Italian outfit after that impressive season but he had a poor return stint with Chelsea. The Blues then loaned him back to Inter for the last campaign.

Lukaku’s second stint in Italy did not go to plan, though. He scored just 10 league goals and capped of his loan spell by missing some big chances in the Champions League final.

Despite Chelsea’s lack of options up front at the start of the season and Christopher Nkunku out until the end of the year, the Blues seemingly have no desire to keep Lukaku around.

According to The Athletic, Chelsea and Romelu Lukaku have decided to entertain a temporary move away from Stamford Bridge if a permanent exit cannot be agreed.

the club have been working all summer to secure a sale, they are now also open to him leaving on loan — provided it includes an obligation to buy or is a straight loan that includes a meaningful fee.

Juventus, Roma and teams in the Saudi Pro League have enquired, with the latter more focused on a purchase.
