Chelsea has added a new price tag to Romelo Lukaku.
British media ‘Cut Offside’ reported on the 10th (Korean time), quoting transfer market expert Fabricio Romano, that “Chelsea has set Lukaku’s final sale price at 42 million euros (about 60 billion won).”
Lukaku’s future was in a fog this summer. Although he returned to Chelsea after ending his loan contract with Inter Milan last July, Lukaku was not included in coach Mauricio Pochettino’s plans for this season.
Chelsea had no intention of working with Lukaku. Despite being signed in 2021 for a transfer fee of 113 million euros (about 165.1 billion won), his performance was disappointing and he even publicly criticized the club and manager.토토사이트
The sale was not easy. Initially, Inter Milan and Juventus were mentioned as potential destinations, but neither team could afford to pay Chelsea’s requested transfer fee.
The transfer was barely accomplished. AS Roma signed Lukaku on loan last August. The influence of manager Jose Mourinho, who had a close relationship with Chelsea and Manchester United (Manchester United), had a great influence.
The effect of recruiting was beyond expectations. Lukaku blended into Roma without any particular adjustment period. He performed well, scoring 7 goals in 8 games across all competitions.
It is no exaggeration to say that this is his prowess at his peak. Lukaku once again proved his resurgence by scoring in three consecutive games in recent matches against Frosinone, Servette, and Cagliari.
Chelsea also began to rush to sell Lukaku completely. According to this report, Chelsea has set a policy of allowing Lukaku’s transfer if an offer of 42 million euros is made.
There is a good chance that a complete transfer will take place. The media said, “From Rome’s perspective, 42 million euros is a considerable amount. However, Roma are willing to invest a lot of money to recruit Lukaku, who has left a positive impression.”
