Roman Abramovich ‘would love’ to re-sign Romelu Lukaku amid interest from Erling Haaland
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich “would love” to sign Romelu Lukaku again this summer, according to reports.
Thomas Tuchel’s side are eyeing a new center-forward and the 28-year-old is on the hit list along with Erling Haaland and Harry Kane.
Chelsea had been keen to bring the Belgian back to west London after his departure in 2014, but insisted he would stay at Inter Milan this summer.
“Yes, I am staying” Lukaku admitted about his future at Inter last month. “I’ve already had contact with the man who normally becomes our new manager. Maybe I shouldn’t say it yet … It was a very positive conversation. There is also the challenge of starting over (winning the championship). I feel good at Inter. “
Chelsea have reportedly already agreed on terms with Lukaku if a deal is made,
But according to a new report from 90min, Chelsea turns their attention to Haaland. They are ready to offer up to £ 150million for the Borussia Dortmund striker.
However, they also claim that owner Roman Abramovich “would like” Lukaku to be the forward the Blues sign this summer. He is one of his ‘favorite’ players, but after his declaration of intention to stay at Inter they are now ready to focus on Haaland.
What Thomas Tuchel said about summer acquisitions
“Two or three (signings) could be very, very good. It is a constant thing to never deny change; that you always bring new energy, new guys who challenge old beliefs, who challenge everyone in training and in games, so I think that’s a good thing.
“We don’t need seven more and another full turnover because it’s also our job to keep improving, because we still have a young team and it’s not about stealing from them the chance to prove it again, that they are able to grow and But of course we have some ideas to make the group stronger, and I think that can always be a positive thing to challenge us all. “
