Romelu Lukaku makes Chelsea U-turn, speaks to Thomas Tuchel

There are reports Romelu Lukaku has had a change of heart over his future at Inter Milan after contacts with Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel

According to Belgian outlet HLN, this new development is as result of help from the west London club’s owner Roman Abramovich.

The 28-year-old’s agent Federico Pastorello “does not expect” his client to turn down a potential move to Chelsea, the report claims.

Obviously, Chelsea will have to reach an agreement with Inter first, but recent reports suggest that the London club is prepared to make an improved offer for the striker.

HLN further highlighted that Lukaku loves Milan and is not “explicitly” pushing for a return to Chelsea. But Chelsea’s “blitzkrieg”, as the media described it, has changed his mind.

Firstly, the report added, Tuchel has promised him “heaven”. This suggests that the Chelsea manager has already been in contact with Lukaku and likely had conversations about his plans.

Secondly, Blues owner is reportedly ready to make Lukaku the most expensive signing in the Premier League history. What matters to Lukaku, however, is that a return to Chelsea would see him earn almost double his wage.

Finally, the report mentioned that for Lukaku, Chelsea have always been the club for Lukaku, despite his spell at Manchester United.
