Chelsea have a bizarre reason for wanting Romelu Lukaku back


It’s easy to see why Romelu Lukaku is set to be in such high demand this summer.

The Belgian has overtaken Harry Kane as the Premier League’s top scorer with 21 goals this season, and with Everton outside the top six, it’s going to be very difficult for them to hang onto him.

Since the striker dismissed a new contract offer, speculation has intensified that he’ll be heading back to Chelsea.


The Sun are reporting that the Blues ar most definitely interested, but oddly enough, not just because he’d be the perfect replacement for Diego Costa, who may well be allowed to leave for the Chinese Super League.

It’s claimed that the Chelsea hierarchy are desperate to re-sign the 23-year-old just so they can prove a point to ex-manager Jose Mourinho, the man who allowed him to leave Stamford Bridge in the first place.

However, it could well be the Manchester United boss who has the last laugh. By choosing not to include a buy-back clause when he sold Lukaku, Chelsea will now have to pay around the £70million mark to get him back.
