A lot has been said about bringing back the former Chelsea man Romelu Lukaku. The tall and strong Belgian was once a blue, but struggled to get into the first team, and was loaned out to clubs such as West Brom and Everton. Lukaku secured a £27 million move to Everton.
Lukaku lit up Goodison Park and has over 100 career goals at just 23. With the current striker’s future in doubt, Conte is in the market for a new striker, and it very well could be Romelu Lukaku.
Lukaku has been criticised for his poor first touch and loss of possession, but there is no doubt he is a lethal finisher and loves Chelsea. Everybody knows about the legendary status in which Didier Drogba holds at the club, who netted the late equaliser and the winning penalty in our Champions League victory in 2012.
Lukaku and Drogba have a very good relationship, and Drogba has referred to Romelu as his younger brother. Drogba was quoted in saying “If he comes to Chelsea it will be great for the club. He knows the house already and I think he wants to prove he can be successful here, he didn’t get the chance to do it. Chelsea is his club since he was young, so why not? He wants to be the best. He’s really working hard to become the best. I am always challenging him.”
Lukaku never scored for Chelsea, and feels that he has unfinished business at Stamford Bridge. A lot has been said about Mbappe following in the footsteps of Thierry Henry, and that very well could be happening here, with Lukaku and Drogba. The similarities are endless, and Chelsea fans could very well be screaming his name when he leads Chelsea to their second Champions League victory in their history, and with Conte managing him, and the support of his idol Didier and the Chelsea fans, it could happen this year.
