Why I returned to Chelsea – Lukaku
Romelu Lukaku has spoken about his return to Chelsea, after the club unveiled him officially on Thursday.
The Blues agreed a £97.5m fee with Inter Milan for the 28-year-old striker.
“I’m happy, blessed to be back at this wonderful club. I have supported Chelsea as a kid.
“The way the club is going fits my ambitions perfectly and just coming off winning Serie A.
“This opportunity comes at the right time and we can have a lot of success together,” Lukaku said.
The Belgian striker was signed by Chelsea in 2011 from Anderlecht, but he made just a handful of appearances.
He was sent out on loan to West Brom and then Everton, who eventually signed him on a permanent basis.
Lukaku joined Manchester United, before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer offloaded him to Inter, where he helped them win the Serie A title last term, scoring 30 goals.
