Lukaku returning to Chelsea ‘to prove people wrong’

Romelu Lukaku has re-joined Chelsea from Serie A outfit Inter Milan in a move that has cost the Blues £97m, smashing their club transfer record.

The Belgian forward is expected to enjoy a significant wage increase with the Blues, penning a five-year deal worth £350,000 per week, though that could lower to around £200,000 per week after tax.

The 28-year-old leaves Inter after two seasons, the most recent of which he helped guide the Nerazzurri to their first Serie A title in more than ten years.

Lukaku first arrived in England in 2011 to ply his trade for Chelsea, spending three years at the club before he eventually called time on his Blues career to join Everton on a permanent basis in 2014.

He enjoyed three years at Goodison Park before signing for Manchester United in 2017 for £75m, spending a further two seasons at Old Trafford before he upped sticks to Italy to join Inter Milan.

Over the course of his respective stints at Chelsea, Everton, Man Utd and a loan spell at West Bromwich Albion, Lukaku already has 113 Premier League goals to his name.
