Rio Ferdinand reveals what Chelsea-linked Romelu Lukaku said to him in recent conversation

Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea

After stints at Everton, Manchester United and Inter Milan, Romelu Lukaku looks set to return to Chelsea this summer.

The Belgian’s links to the Blues began to truly ramp up last week:

Then, this past Saturday, transfer expert David Ornstein broke the news that Chelsea had agreed a deal with Inter, to bring Lukaku back to London:

It was then reported on Monday that the forward was undergoing his medical in Italy ahead of his return to Chelsea.

Ferdinand on Romelu Lukaku

Now, with a Chelsea return seemingly all but certain, Rio Ferdinand has been discussing Lukaku.

The ex-Manchester United star would reveal that he has spoken to Lukaku recently, stating that the 28-year-old told him that he is hungry (presumably for goals and success, not food):

“I’ve spoken to him recently and he’s hungry man. He hasn’t confirmed to me that he’s signing for Chelsea but he just said this season, he’s hungry.”

Ferdinand added:

“I just think this guy, a lot of greatness comes through having fuel and what I mean by that is having doubters and wanting to prove them wrong.

“He’s got a whole stadium full at Manchester United who doubted him, all the fan base at Old Trafford doubted him. A lot of people weren’t too dissatisfied when he left.

“He will be sitting there and looking in the diary to see when that Old Trafford game is and he will want to unload.

“Romelu Lukaku guarantees you 20 goals, minimum. He guarantees you that. He’s scored goals wherever he’s been, he’s an elite goalscorer, it’s as simple as that.”
