Against all odds – and contrary to our projections a week ago – Romelu Lukaku’s return to Inter is moving along at a rapid pace, and it now appears to be more likely than not.
Chelsea supporters and the coaching staff will be relieved since they look to want him gone as soon as possible.
However, it returns us to where we were a year ago – in need of a quality striker.
There aren’t many available now that Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe have made their choices. But there’s another huge name on the market: Robert Lewandowski.
He’s been associated with Barcelona for a long time, and they remain the clear favourites to get him – but ESPN claims to have learned from “sources” that the Blues are interested to sign him.
He’s a quality player who, despite being in his 30s, still has lot to offer.
