Corriere della Sera today have provided some information about the situation of the Belgian and Roma’s chase for him. They trace the happenings of the last 24 hours, describing it as a move which seemed quite complex some days ago but has opened up for the Roman side.
The managements of the two clubs met yesterday evening after the match between Chelsea and Luton and the talks continued into the night. Lukaku’s definitive ‘yes’ is yet to arrive and he remained in Brussels yesterday and in in theory, oriented towards waiting another 24 hours before giving definitive approval to the transfer.
It is stated that when Roma sealed their move for Sardar Azmoun, Tiago Pinto informed Jose Mourinho and members of the squad that Lukaku would arrive at the club and this left Paulo Dybala happy, after he was left disappointed about the club’s inability to land his friend Alvaro Morata.
Relations between Chelsea and Roma are excellent and during talks yesterday, the Blues made it clear that they would pay a percentage of the €12 million per season wage of the Belgian. Jose Mourinho, as previously reported, has already spoken to the striker about reuniting once again.
