Lukaku’s agent opens up on death threat over Chelsea transfer
Romelu Lukaku’s agent, Federico Pastorello, has claimed he and his family received death threats over the striker’s move to Chelsea.
The 28-year-old left Inter Milan to complete a £97.5million transfer to Stamford Bridge this week.
Pastorello, in a statement on Friday, defended his work and pointed out he was in part responsible for Lukaku’s transfer to Inter in the first place.
“Many of those who today insult me and threaten me, thanked me wholeheartedly for bringing him to Milan.
“I have always accepted – and will continue to do so – confrontation and constructive criticism: they are part of the game for those who play a role with considerable media relevance,” he said.
Lukaku is not expected to make his second Chelsea debut this weekend against Crystal Palace.
Instead, he is expected to face Arsenal – who lost 2-0 to Brentford on Friday – next week.
