Lukaku returns to the Premier League

Romelu Lukaku returned to the Premier League, and again to Chelsea, this summer, in the second-highest transfer of the window.

His 97 million pounds move back to Stamford Bridge was heralded as the final piece in the Chelsea jigsaw for Thomas Tuchel, who, fresh off the back of Champions League success.

However, the Belgian has struggled.

A mixture of injury and poor form has seen him net just 3 Premier League goals this term, and he has not found the back of the net since the second week of September in the English top flight.

This has come at a bad time for Chelsea, who are beginning to leak goals but are still failing to score them.

Lukaku’s career, however, could have been very different.

Manchester United nearly sell to… Juventus?

In the summer of 2019, it was clear that Lukaku wanted to depart Manchester United, who he had joined two years earlier for 76 million pounds from Everton.

However, where he would end up remained a mystery.

Eventually, he joined Inter Milan, but his agent Federico Pastorello has today revealed that there was a potential deal in place to take him to Juventus instead, that would have netted United a pair of stars in exchange.

Pastorello claimed:

“Juventus had an agreement with Manchester United for Lukaku, and in exchange Dybala & Mandzukic would’ve been going to them.”

So, what changed? Well, as per Pastorello, Inter Milan upped their bid, while Dybala failed to commit to the deal, leaving Inter free to swoop in.

“Romelu had already spoken with Sarri & CR7. But then Dybala didn’t find an agreement with United and Inter raised their offer.”

Would Lukaku have had the same success in Turin?
