Romelu Lukaku to be snubbed by Chelsea. Romelu Lukaku won’t be going on the preseason tour of the United States with the rest of the Chelsea team, the club has decided. On Sunday, July 16, Fabrizio Romano gave an update on the player’s future.
The transfer expert predicts that Lukaku will return to training at the start of the following week. The club placed a $40 million valuation on the former Manchester United striker.
According to Romano’s most recent report, Inter Milan, who were interested in bringing the striker back to Serie A, are no longer in the running. However, Juventus, the club’s Italian rival, is still looking for the Belgian international.
Juventus’ most recent offer was for €37.5 million plus €2.5 million in add-ons. Whether Dusan Vlahovic agrees to transfer to Stamford Bridge will reportedly determine whether the move to Turin proceeds.
The player can also complete a transfer to the Saudi Pro League. In any case, the Blues would prefer to have Lukaku’s future resolved before the start of the new season in August.
The player is experienced in Italian football, having played three seasons in Serie A. He initially stayed in Milan for two years, from 2019 to 2021, and also spent last year’s season there on loan from Chelsea.
The 30-year-old striker has 132 matches under his belt for Inter, and he has netted 78 goals in all competitions. With the Italian team, the former Everton forward was able to capture the Serie A championship in 2021.
Chelsea’s negotiations with Juventus about the transfer of Romelu Lukaku could be terminated if Dusan Vlahovic signs with PSG:
Dusan Vlahovic is reportedly in negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) for a transfer to the Ligue 1 league, according to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla. The negotiations between Chelsea and Juventus for Romelu Lukaku’s move to Italy can come to an end if the Serbian international decides to move to Paris.
Fabrizio Romano claims that should Vlahovic move to Stamford Bridge, the Blues would be willing to let go of their striker. However, according to Metro, the 23-year-old attacker would rather move to France than England.
Juventus has ruled out the prospect of a loan agreement and is now still awaiting a bid from PSG. For its striker, the club is looking to get at least £63 million.
