Romelu Lukaku Linked With Stunning Reunion With Antonio Conte At Tottenham After Bombshell Interview
The Belgium international revealed last week that he is “not happy” with his situation at Chelsea, with Lukaku hinting at his desire to play for Inter Milan again.
Lukaku also claimed that he rejected an offer from defending Premier League champions Manchester City after his first season with Inter.
And another of the 28-year-old Belgian striker’s bombshell remarks included Chelsea being his ‘fourth-choice’ club he wanted to sign for last summer.
Thomas Tuchel dropped Lukaku from his squad ahead of Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The Chelsea manager pulled no punches towards Lukaku, with Tuchel insisting that his player’s extraordinary comments “brings noise that we don’t need.”
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Lukaku could make a stunning exit from Stamford Bridge.
The Italian newspaper reports that a move to Conte’s Tottenham can’t be ruled out, despite Chelsea’s rivalry with fellow London club Spurs.
Lukaku, who is under contract with Chelsea until 2026, played under Conte at Inter and lifted the Serie A title last season.
The former Manchester United striker made 95 appearances for the Serie A club and scored 64 times during his two seasons with Inter.
Lukaku reportedly spoke with a former Everton teammate about his Chelsea future ahead of the Liverpool match.
Following Lukaku’s interview, eagle-eyed fans also spotted that the Chelsea star’s official Facebook page contained an interesting detail in the bio section.
Tuchel has confirmed that he will hold talks with Lukaku on Monday and insisted that there is still a place for the former Inter striker in his Chelsea squad.
“He is our player, there is always a way back,” he told Sky Sports after the Chelsea match.
“We will clear this behind closed doors and once we have made a decision and Romelu knows, you will maybe know also. It is not to be discussed now.”
