Chelsea Seals £98m Deal with Lukaku

Chelsea has sealed an agreement of £98m deal with Lukaku

Chelsea have agreed a deal in principle for Romelu Lukaku, with the Inter man’s £98 million ($135m) return to Stamford Bridge set to be officially announced early next week, Goal has learned.

The Blues have pursued the Belgian attacker across the summer amid the Serie A champions’ need to offload players amid rising debts.

Now, Thomas Tuchel’s side look to have secured their target, with the forward poised to return to the Champions League holders a decade on from his first arrival in west London.

Having started in his home country with Anderlecht, Lukaku first moved to England when he was snapped up by Chelsea in 2011.

He failed to leave an impression during his first spell with the club, however, making just eight top-fight appearances before he was loaned out the following season to West Brom.

A second loan stint away from the club followed in 2013-14 at Everton, where he found much greater success, facilitating a full-time switch to Goodison Park at the end of that campaign.

Having established himself as a Belgium international, Lukaku continued to rise through the ranks with an impressive three-year spell on Merseyside, before a record-breaking switch to Manchester United took him back to the upper echelons of the Premier League.
