ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ROMELU LUKAKU'S RETURN TO CHELSEA WITH PICS

 

Lukaku now Chelsea’s highest earner how much is the deal worth, what's his weekly salary, why I am returning to Stamford Bridge-Lukaku





Romelu Lukaku has overtaken N’Golo Kante as the highest-paid player at Chelsea having completed his move £97.5million from Inter Milan worth £200,000 a week after tax.

Lukaku was a Chelsea supporter growing up so he feels he has unfinished business at Stamford Bridge.

He feels he didn’t do himself justice before at Chelsea, where his strained relationship with Andre Villas-Boas made life difficult for him and he did not get a real chance to prove himself.


I’m happy and blessed to be back at this wonderful club,’ said Lukaku. ‘It’s been a long journey for me: I came here as a kid who had a lot to learn, now I’m coming back with a lot of experience and more mature.

‘The relationship I have with this club means so much to me, as you know. I have supported Chelsea as a kid and now to be back and try to help them win more titles is an amazing feeling.

‘The way the club is going fits my ambitions perfectly at 28 and just coming off winning Serie A. I think this opportunity comes at the right time and hopefully we can have a lot of success together.

‘Since I left Chelsea, it’s been a long journey with a lot of ups and downs, but these experiences made me strong and the challenge is to try to help the team win some more trophies. I can’t wait to get started and to help the club achieve more success.’

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: ‘Romelu Lukaku is quite simply one of the world’s best strikers and goalscorers. We are absolutely delighted to be bringing him back to the club he loves, and are excited to be adding his talent to our Champions League-winning squad.

‘We are of course looking to build on last season’s success, and Lukaku will play a big role in achieving our targets. I’m sure all Chelsea fans will join me in saying welcome home, Romelu!’

   Now 28 years old and a well-established world-class striker, Lukaku is back with the Blues after joining Everton in 2014. After loan spells at West Brom and Everton, the center forward then joined the Toffees permanently before heading to Manchester United and then Inter Milan. He has netted 80 goals for club and country in the past two seasons alone, adding a ruthless streak to the tenacity and touch that have defined his game for so long.

A formidable forward who is equally adept at holding the ball up with his back to goal as well as running into channels with purpose and intent, Lukaku has eight years of Premier League experience under his belt. During that time, he scored 113 goals in the division, taking him up to 20th place on the list of all-time Premier League goalscorers.

OFFICIAL: ROMELU LUKAKU IS BACK IN CHELSEA BLUE!
 

Aged just 18 when he arrived at Stamford Bridge from Anderlecht in his homeland in the summer of 2011, he made 15 Chelsea appearances in three seasons, two of which were largely spent on loan, before moving on to Everton, Manchester United and Inter Milan.

While at Inter, Lukaku was named the Europa League Player of the Season in 2019/20, before playing an integral part as the Italian side won Serie A last season. His 24 goals and 11 assists earned him the competition’s MVP award.

He was happy at Inter and was not planning on leaving this summer but Chelsea’s interest and Inter’s financial problems mean the deal suits all parties.

Chelsea shifted attention to Lukaku after they failed to convince Borussia Dortmund to sell Erling Haaland this summer. Thomas Tuchel personally asked for Lukaku and he believes Chelsea have bought one of the most complete forwards in world football.

Lukaku’s agent Federico Pastorello was instrumental  to the transfer by ensuring that Inter received their €115m asking price and Chelsea got the No. 9 they desired.

Can Lukaku's power Help Chelsea Retain The Champions League?

      AKURE OBASHIP: OBA AGUNSOYEBIOYINBO ADEMUAGUN ADESIDA 11 BROUGHT CLASS AND DIGNITY TO THE THRONE                 By Sunday Ajibola There are men and there are men. Man gets to positions of power and authority and bring to bear their inner qualities. Position, as we have it here, is used to do all sorts of things; good and bad. But mostly and vexatiously, position blinds us as we use it to cheat and deny others their rights. Certain men understand that position is an opportunity to etch their names in gold and put such in the same of time.   It is exactly fifty years today that the 42nd Deji of Akure, late Oba Agunsoyebioyinbo Ademuagun Adesida 11 joined his ancestors. That fateful day was Sunday and in the evening; darkness was just enveloping the city. It was the strange shouts of "opo ye o, opo ye o, opo ye o", that prompted me to rush out of our house at Oke aro. I saw people running helter, skelter. I did not bother about them. I was looking for the "electric
