It has been a crazy few hours in the Transfer Tavern…
Chelsea’s striker saga has been long documented this summer, with the Blues seemingly keen to get Diego Costa out of the door and get him replaced with one of Europe’s best forwards.
For a while, the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have only had one name on their lips as they discuss who they want that forward to be: Romelu Lukaku.
Of course, Chelsea were the club that brought Lukaku to the Premier League, having signed him as a teenager before selling him to Everton several years ago. Since then, he has turned into one of England’s most lethal forwards, and there is no denying that he is ready to step up into the Chelsea first team.
However, whilst many fans in the pub have been expecting a move from Chelsea, with various media publications reporting interest from the club, that now appears unlikely to happen – with the BBC reporting that Man Utd have now agreed a fee with Everton for the striker – with a move to Old Trafford now looking increasingly likely. This development will, of course, leave Chelsea out in the cold, with no real replacement seemingly in sight.
For the Chelsea fans in the pub, this is devastating news – and the fans on Twitter aren’t holding up very well either. Rather, they are very angry indeed…
Conte instructed the board to sign Lukaku. We are the Champions, shouldn't be losing players from under our noses. This isn't good! #CFC

Conte must be quietly fuming! I’m sure he and all of us thought Lukaku to #CFC was a certainty. Another target slips through the net

Was never that bothered about signing Romelu Lukaku but if not him…who else? #CFC

But why didn’t we put a buy back clause when we sold Lukaku to Everton? We knew he was going to be a beast . #CFC

Chelsea fans who are happy that Lukaku isnt happening are going to regret it big time #CFC

Chelsea should never have sold Lukaku and now he'll be banging on goals for Man Utd. One of the worst transfer decisions #CFC have made.
