- Sources close to the striker explain that he is outside of everything and that there is a lot of uncertainty
- At Barça they are attentive to his situation and have his name in mind in case the Haaland operation is not carried out
Romelu Lukaku is one of the names that Barça has on the list in case it is impossible to hire Erling Haaland, the main objective to reinforce the attack in the summer. The very uncertain future of Chelsea could precipitate his departure. Although in Italy they have reported that he has been offered to Inter Milan, sources close to the player assure that no movement has been made, that he is waiting because the situation is very confusing, that he is outside of everything that is being said around the club and that he is only focused on training and playing. His future depends on many things.
Chelsea’s situation is very complex due to the sanctions that the United Kingdom has imposed on Roman Abramovich, the still owner of the English club who is obliged to sell it in the coming months. The Financial Sanctions Implementation Office has issued a general license to the entity that restricts some financial issues but does not prevent it from paying employees and players, affected only by issues of some rights.
Lukaku’s sporting situation is not good. He does not fit into Thomas Tuchel’s plans and has lost ownership to Kai Havertz. His sporting uncertainty and the situation the entity is experiencing could force him to make a decision and more so if there are clubs with Barça behind him, but for the moment he is on the sidelines. That he is linked today to the Simone Inzaghi project would not fit reality.
