Romelu Lukaku Not a priority For Chelsea

Romelu Lukaku £97m Chelsea loanee still not set for return despite new manager at the club

despite the change  Fabrizio Romano has claimed in his column for CaughtOffside that a return to Chelsea for Romelu Lukaku is still not a priority for both sides.

The Belgian has a single goal and assist to mark his opening three league games back at Inter Milan, where he is currently on loan for the season.

The striker got his wish to return to the San Siro after just one season back at Chelsea, following his £97m move.

After a strong start, his performances began to suffer, while his off-field antics made the relationship he had with the fans become beyond repair.

Despite certain members on the board pushing for him to stay, it was Todd Boehly’s influence that put everyone out of their misery for the time being and facilitated a move to Inter.

Lukaku not a priority

While it is only currently a temporary move, Romano has confirmed that at this stage it doesn’t look like the situation at Stamford Bridge is set to change.

He said: “Nothing has changed between Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea. The point is the player, he’s only focused on Inter project and he hopes to continue there also next season.

“No one called him on the Chelsea side, so I think the comeback is not a priority for both club and player.”

There may have been a few wondering that if the new manager at the club would be able to bring somewhat of the best of Lukaku out, with it still unclear who Graham Potter favours in his starting team.

However, this seems to not be high on the list, despite the club not currently having a regular goalscorer in their ranks.

Although, it is fair to say that the Belgian failed to provide the regular goal threat they required from their number nine, and it may be best for everyone if the time together is swiftly forgotten about.
