Chelsea: the Romelu Lukaku clan comes out of silence

At the end of a very complicated year at Chelsea, Romelu Lukaku has seen his representative rise to the occasion.

It’s quite surprising, but after having paid more than €100 million for his transfer from Inter last summer, Chelsea is only using Romelu Lukaku (29) in homeopathic doses (only 15 starts in the Premier League). A situation that has, on the one hand, dented the confidence of the Belgian striker, unrecognizable in each of his last appearances, and on the other hand, has alerted the market, especially in Italy, where Inter, his former club, and AC Milan have been announced on his tracks for this summer.

In the columns of La Repubblica, his representative Federico Pastorello came out of silence to talk about these transalpine rumors first of all. “On Lukaku, there are many rumors for nothing. He has the club and the fans in his heart, but we can not talk about a hypothetical case: Chelsea has sealed the sale of the club, we do not know the new interlocutors, let alone if we can make the assumption of discussions with Inter or Milan. We have to wait”, he explained.

Top scorer of the Blues despite everything…

Rather than sweeping aside the possibility of a departure, the clan of the Red Devils’ striker (68 goals in 101 appearances) is playing for time. Because, despite a lease running until June 2026 with the Blues, the current season, which took a surprising turn after a controversial interview of the interested party in the media of La Botte, has left traces, which did not hide the famous Italian agent, defending the record of his protégé (15 goals in all competitions).

“No one could expect such a situation. I do not argue with the technical choices, but it is obvious that there was a problem. Nevertheless, the numbers speak for themselves: he is the team’s top scorer, despite reduced playing time compared to his teammates. Now he is focused on the fight for the Champions League (Chelsea is currently 3rd in the Premier League) and the FA Cup final. Then we’ll see,” he concluded. So if nothing is finalized, there could be a new Lukaku soap opera all summer…
