Reasons Why Lukaku Signed For Chelsea

Romelu Lukaku has signed a new contract with the Champions of Europe, Chelsea just hours after their Super Cup win. The in form striker had initially rejected a return to the club which he started his professional career with when he was just 17 years of age but due to the financial situation at Inter Milan, it was right the striker accepted a move to his boyhood club.

Since Lukaku left Chelsea in 2013 after a penalty miss against Bayern Munich in the 2013 Super Cup final, he has played for Everton, Manchester United and Inter Milan and has scored over 150 goals combined for all three clubs.

His return is something positive for Chelsea as the club seriously needed a proven goal scorer to enhance their chances of winning the premier league and other trophies this season.

According to Lukaku, the main reason for his return to the club was, he felt he had unfinished business at the club having not scored a profession goal for the club in his few appearance for Chelsea. He said “I came here as a kid who had a lot to learn, now I’m coming back with a lot of experience and more mature. The relationship I have with this club means so much to me, as you know."

The second reason for his signing is because of trophies. According to Lukaku, the club’s profile and recent achievements suited his plan for his career and once the move was on, he could hardly reject. He said “The way the club is going fits my ambitions perfectly at 28 and just coming off winning Serie A. I think this opportunity comes at the right time”

Lukaku is a serious goal threat and is tipped to be the right heir to Drogba’s throne after Diego Costa left the club in 2017.

Chelsea now face Crystal Palace on Sunday but it is unlikely that Lukaku will be given game time in that match. However, Chelsea fans could see him in action when Chelsea face Arsenal next week.
