It appears that Chelsea may trade another player to Saudi Arabia in the upcoming season.
Chelsea sold Edouard Mendy and Kalidou Koulibaly to Al-Hilal and Al-Ahli, respectively, during the summer, and N’Golo Kante joined Al-Ittihad.
As reported by journalist Fabio Santini in an interview with TV Play, Romelu Lukaku of Chelsea may become the next player to join the Saudi Pro League.
Although the 30-year-old is presently on loan at AS Roma, TEAMtalk revealed last month that the Italian team may sign him long-term for much to £35 million. But now it appears that things have become more difficult for them.
Romelu Lukaku approves of the Saudi Arabian action
According to Santini, Lukaku has already accepted a sizable offer from Saudi Arabia, as reported by TV Play.
Speaking about Lukaku’s future, he said: ” Given that he has already accepted a million-dollar offer from Saudi Arabia, it seems unlikely that he will rejoin Juventus. I tell Roma supporters that Romelu will depart at the conclusion of the season.
Lukaku coming to the Saudi Pro League is far too soon. This season, he has demonstrated once again why he is among Europe’s top goal scorers.
“Excellent talent”: According to Mauricio Pochettino, the young player Chelsea signed is of the highest calibre.
The Belgium international has 11 goals in 18 games for Roma. He has a good chance of scoring 20 goals.
Although Lukaku was never pleased at Stamford Bridge, the club has no choice but to recall him. It is the kind of firepower that Mauricio Pochettino could use right now as his Chelsea team struggles.
The former striker for Manchester United and Inter Milan is expected to permanently leave Chelsea in the summer, with Saudi Arabia appearing to be a potential destination.
