Romelu Lukaku could join AS Roma after getting rejected by several clubs over the summer. The Belgian striker’s transfer saga has been a soap opera this season. The Nerazzurri will not take him back at any cost, as the club directors are furious after he went behind their backs. Now, Lukaku is struggling to find a destination for this season and could move to AS Roma on a loan deal. However, Chelsea want to sell him permanently, but no club want to sign him on a permanent transfer.
The Giallorossi are willing to add another forward to their existing promising attack. However, they will not pay more than €6 million in loan fees. Lukaku earns €12 million in wages, and Roma are proposing to share his wages with Chelsea. But the Blues want to sell him permanently and are ready to come down to €40 million in transfer fees. Currently, Lukaku is playing with the under-21 team of Chelsea and want a move away soon.
Lukaku could join AS Roma as Juve refuse to move for him
The Belgian striker was negotiating with Juventus behind Inter Milan’s back as the Nerazzurri were taking time to plan his new deal. Inter were in contact with Chelsea and were willing to keep Lukaku. However, after Lukaku’s betrayal, Inter decided to leave Lukaku. The Belgian striker has been struggling to find a possible suitor, and Roma seems to be the last option for him.
Juventus are still keeping Lukaku on their radar as they are looking to sell Vlahovic. The Bianconeri evaluated the Serbian striker at €75 million, but no club could meet the estimation. Chelsea are willing to give around €60 million, so both clubs could strike a swap deal for Vlahovic and Lukaku. However, Juventus are still reluctant to go down with their evaluation.
