Chelsea are nearing completion on Romelu Lukaku’s £97.5 million move back to Stamford Bridge. The Blues and Inter Milan are completing paperwork in preparation for the Belgium striker’s examination. Seven years after leaving Chelsea for Everton in 2014, he will return to the Blues.
Lukaku, 28, notified Italian champions Inter last week that he wanted to join Chelsea, and the two clubs have now agreed on a cost. After taxes, he is expected to sign a contract worth roughly £200,000 per week.
Tammy Abraham will be pushed further down the pecking order by the signing of Romelu Lukaku at Chelsea, but he will not be without options.
Arsenal, West Ham, Southampton, and Atalanta are among the clubs interested in signing the England striker, who Chelsea values at £40 million and would rather let go permanently.
