This is his second loan since joining Chelsea. Lukaku made a £97.5 million move to Chelsea in 2021. However, he was dropped from the squad last season after scoring just eight goals in 26 league games and was forced to go on loan to his ‘home’ club Inter Milan. There was no resurgence. He scored just 10 goals in 25 league games.

Lukaku returned to Chelsea, but there was no place for him. Chelsea could have used Lukaku as a trump card to fill the gap in their frontline that was exposed last season, but new manager Mauricio Pochettino didn’t want him. That doesn’t mean Chelsea were willing to sell him on the cheap. They already had an investment in him, including a transfer fee and salary, so they were willing to take the financial hit and keep him on loan. Hence, his return to Inter Milan and his move to Juventus this summer.

However, Lukaku’s loan move didn’t go so smoothly. Just as Lukaku was becoming a lame duck, Roma’s frontline striker Tammy Abraham was sidelined with an injury. AS Roma president Thiago Pinto flew to London to negotiate a loan move for Lukaku, and it went off without a hitch.

This time, it’s not a losing proposition for Chelsea. During the negotiations, AS Roma inserted a clause into the contract that would allow them to loan Lukaku for one season and pay a fee of £8 million, with a buyout clause of £37 million in case Lukaku performs well this season.
