TOP STORY: Chelsea set to seal Lukaku return

Romelu Menama Lukaku Bolingoli is a Belgian professional footballer who plays as a striker for the Serie A club Inter Milan and the Belgium national team.

According to Sky, Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku will complete his medical in London on Tuesday ahead of his return to Chelsea.

Sources told ESPN's James Olley at the weekend that Lukaku, 28, is set for a second spell at Stamford Bridge once his proposed €115 million transfer had sealed. Details are not decided yet regarding a payment plan, but personal terms aren't an issue. Sources have told that Lukaku's salary is in the region of £250,000 a week.

Sky reports that he had the first part of his medical in Italy on Monday before traveling to England. If Chelsea can complete the deal by 11 p.m. BST on Tuesday, Lukaku could register for Wednesday's UEFA Super Cup match against Villarreal. However, it is more likely that the European champions will focus on getting him ready for the new Premier League season rather than the showpiece in Belfast.

Lukaku spent eight years in the Premier League with Chelsea, West Bromwich Albion, Everton, and Manchester United before joining Inter in 2019 and helping them to the Serie A title last season.

Images of the Belgium international appearing to hold a Chelsea jersey as he was driven away from his medical on Monday have fuelled speculation that he will get unveiled as Chelsea's new record signing sooner rather than later.
