Chelsea Transfer News: Football Insider claims that Spurs have no chance of signing Romelu Lukaku. Chelsea is willing to sell the 29-year-old striker at a bargain price, but few teams are interested in him.
After winning the Champions League, Romelu Lukaku was expected to have a huge impact on the Chelsea club. The Blues paid Inter Milan a staggering £97 million to get the Belgian two years ago, and since then, expectations have been sky-high.
The 29-year-old forward’s career has tanked since his return to Stamford Bridge. His life may have gotten off to a promising start, but he ultimately failed to persuade Thomas Tuchel and only made matters worse by giving unnecessary interviews to the media.
Since then, he’s been loaned back to Inter Milan, where he’s had another disappointing season due to recurring ailments and a drop in performance. Lukaku may have to make a life-changing decision about his future this summer since no major club is interested in signing him because of his problems. In addition, Inter is not likely to make a permanent move to sign him this summer.
Chelsea is ready to suffer a huge loss on the sale of Hazard, thus they are pricing him low. The 29-year-old’s high salary would also deter competitive clubs from chasing him. They can afford to pay his existing salary, thus a relocation to Saudi Arabia may happen soon.
Bayern Munich and Real Madrid were both mentioned. As Madrid is looking to acquire a new striker and Tuchel has joined the Bavarians, it seems like Lukaku will be returning to Chelsea this summer.
Chelsea Transfer News: Even if Chelsea is willing to sell Romelu Lukaku for pennies on the dollar, Tottenham is not expected to make a play for him this summer.
Nevertheless, reports indicated that Tottenham was interested in signing the striker as the north London club sought to bolster its attack. Spurs may see Lukaku as a successor for England captain Harry Kane, casting uncertainty on the futures of Antonio Conte and star striker Harry Kane.
According to the source, Spurs may abandon their pursuit of Lukaku this summer in favour of exploring alternative possibilities. The 29-year-old’s salary is a potential issue, but he does not otherwise meet the criteria, in their opinion. The Belgian may need to weigh his choices as they narrow.
Chelsea may not have a place for him since they no longer need a striker with Lukaku’s skill set. The 29-year-old’s future is now unknown, so eventually, the media will start asking questions about him.
