Romelu Lukaku

Belgian striker, Romelu Lukaku, has rejoined his former club Chelsea, almost 10 years after moving from Anderlecht at 17.

It is reported that the striker returns to Stamford Bridge on a five-year deal, having asked former club Inter Milan to agree to a transfer.

The 28-year-old was signed for a club-record fee of £97.5m, surpassing Kai Havertz who was signed for £75.8m last season.

“I’m happy and blessed to be back at this wonderful club,” Lukaku told the club’s website. “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.”


Lukaku returns to the Premier League where he spent time with Chelsea in 2011 and made 15 appearances for the club, then became one of the most prolific strikers scoring 87 goals in 166 games for Everton between 2014 and 2017, and 42 goals in 96 appearances during his two years at Manchester United. He went on to join the  Italian side, Inter Milan, scoring 24 goals last season to help them secure their first Scudetto in 11 years.
