Chelsea and Romelu Lukaku, a love affair with some serious unfinished business, and some unfinished business that is soon about to be complete?
Yes, according to Sky Italy’s Angelo Mangiante, who tells us that the deal for Chelsea to sign Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan, is now ‘very close.’
Mangiante says that Chelsea are now preparing a ‘super new bid’ of 130 million euros, offering Lukaku 12 million euros net per season as a salary.

I’m sure this will be enough for Inter to accept, with us all knowing the financial struggles they are in right now, and they do have to sell one more big player this summer, that looks like it could be Lukaku…
Inter still need to sell one more player. No acceptable offers for Lautaro – the one they wanted to sell – have come in so… If Inter accept the offer, Lukaku will move…
