The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for Romelu Lukaku to move back to Stamford Bridge this summer…
The Blues clearly need a new forward this summer, with the return of the Champions League next season and the lack of depth within Chelsea’s front line, and for many in the pub – Lukaku is the perfect fit.
There was a real cheer of delight, then, when reports emerged suggesting that the Blues have received a boost in their pursuit of the attacker. According to the Daily Mail, Romelu Lukaku has instructed his advisers to secure him a move to Chelsea this summer – with the Belgian said to be keen on a switch back to Stamford Bridge.
With Man Utd also thought to be in the race, this news has left the Chelsea fans in the pub on cloud-9, with many fearing that Man Utd could look to steal a march on the Blues for the striker. Instead, it seems as though Lukaku is desperate to move back to Chelsea this summer.
Of course, the Belgian has some unfinished business at Stamford Bridge. Originally coming to Chelsea when he first moved to the Premier League, the striker failed to make an impact before a permanent move to Everton – and clearly he feels as though he wants to prove that he is good enough to play for the Blues.
Our landlord thinks that a duo of Diego Costa and Lukaku could just be a match made in heaven. With a combined Premier League goal tally of 45 last season, the pair could be deadly together.
