The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are definitely onboard with Romelu Lukaku joining the club this summer, and it seems as though a certain Chelsea icon thinks the same thing…
Discussing the prospect of Lukaku moving back to Stamford Bridge, he told Sky Sports: “If he comes to Chelsea it will be great for the club”.
He continued: “He knows the house already and I think he wants to prove he can be successful here, he didn’t get the chance to do it. Chelsea is his club since he was young, so why not?”
Certainly, it seems as though Drogba is on board with the deal – and our landlord thinks that it would make a lot of sense.
In essence, Lukaku is the heir apparent to Drogba, and whilst it didn’t work out for him at first glance, there is no doubting that Lukaku would make a real impact Stamford Bridge today. Strong, powerful and a force in front of goal – he can do it all.
The notion of him joining makes particular sense given the current climate at Stamford Bridge, with the return of the Champions League next season alongside Diego Costa’s recent lack of form. Lukaku could certainly come in and do a job, and most importantly get game time, so it could be a deal that works for all parties.
Our landlord thinks that it is time for Chelsea to spend up and bring Lukaku home.
