Well, it’s official. After a wonderful stint at Inter Milan, Romelu Lukaku is officially back at Chelsea FC. The Champions League winners made the deal for Lukaku happen for a reported €115m fee and he’ll pocket a nice €12m net per season plus add ons.

This is the most unfortunate end to something we knew was probably coming. The Belgian helped lead Inter to a lovely Scudetto last year and was poised to help the club in its Antonio Conte-less future. No one can blame him for taking the large pay increase and taking a shot at redeeming his Premier League struggles with United and Chelsea.
You’ll be missed Romelu.
