Romelu Lukaku of Chelsea is reportedly being courted by Real Madrid for a surprise move during the upcoming summer transfer season
The Belgian forward is presently on loan at Inter Milan, where during his second stint with the team, he has not made an impression.
Giuseppe Marotta, the CEO of Inter, has announced that Lukaku will rejoin Chelsea, his original team, at the conclusion of the current campaign. The Belgian, however, appears to be in danger of leaving Stamford Bridge soon as Real Madrid allegedly considers him a “strong option” to team up with Karim Benzema up front.
The Daily Mail quotes Spanish publication Fichajes as saying that Real Madrid is eager to sign Lukaku in the summer because they are huge fans of his talent. Lukaku may benefit from the transfer because he had a fantastic time during his first stint at Inter Milan, where he scored 64 goals and provided 16 assists across all categories.
The Belgian failed to duplicate his Inter form and quickly lost the support of then-manager Thomas Tuchel after returning to Chelsea in 2021 for a record-breaking £97 million transfer price. It is still unknown where Lukaku will play in 2019 because Chelsea is allegedly not interested in signing the striker.
If a lucrative offer is made, Chelsea will surely try to sell Lukaku.
