Potter has revealed Chelsea talks will be held over £97M man
CHELSEA boss Graham Potter has revealed that talks will be held about the long-term future of on-loan star Romelu Lukaku.
Lukaku was signed by just over 16 months ago as former boss Thomas Tuchel was desperate to add a world class striker to the attack – and many had hoped that the Belgian would be a massive success.
But despite scoring a few goals – putting in a few solid performances – he looked nothing like the striker that banged in goals for fun at Inter Milan – and last summer – the Blues allowed him to leave on loan back to the Italian giants.
And since his move back to Inter – he has now made it clear that he would like to stay in Italian football and was hoping that a deal could be struck between CHELSEA and Milan.

Now – amid all the speculation – Potter has revealed that there will be talks about whether or not Lukaku will be brought back to the club at the end of the season – he said: “Well, that’s nothing for me to think about at the moment. He is there and he is playing. I think those discussions and conversations will be made at the end of the season.”
His move has not really worked out at the club, his move back at Inter has been plagued by injuries, so sending him back to Stamford Bridge makes sense – although we are certain that he is a player that we are looking to offload
His time is up at Stamford Bridge.
