Well, according to journalist Kristof Terruer, Chelsea's plan is to "get the deal done over the next two to three days" - meaning he would be eligible to play in next Wednesday's final.
The 28-year-old has told Inter to let him leave the the San Siro in order to complete the move back to west London - almost a decade later since joining as a fresh-faced 18-year-old.

So far, Chelsea have so far seen two bids knocked back for the star striker - the last valued at £85m - which included full-back Marcos Alonso as part of the deal.
Lukaku, who moved to Inter from Manchester United, did not enjoy the greatest of spells at Old Trafford.
Since then, however, the Belgian has established himself as one of Europe's best strikers, netting 47 goals in just 72 appearances for the Serie A giants. But will he replicate that same form in a Chelsea shirt?
