Chelsea’s Big-Money Signing Could Pose a Problem – Romano

Lukaku’s Chelsea Future Uncertain Despite Strong Roma Loan Spell

Despite a prolific loan spell at AS Roma, Romelu Lukaku’s future at Chelsea remains unclear, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. The 30-year-old striker, considered surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge, could bring in a significant transfer fee to reinvest in other players. 

However, Chelsea faces a challenge in offloading Lukaku. His hefty wages and the potential transfer fee (release clause reportedly around £38 million) make him a difficult player to move. 

Romano predicts Roma won’t be able to retain Lukaku next season due to the financial limitations of the deal. While interest exists from Saudi Arabia, this may not be the only option. 

Lukaku’s impressive 20-goal season with Roma showcases his continued ability as a top player. Chelsea will need to explore different solutions for his future, as a return to Italy seems unlikely.
