Chelsea has confirmed the signing of former Manchester United striker, Romelu Lukaku. The Belgium striker joined the Blues from Italian Serie A side Inter Milan for an undisclosed fee.
The former Manchester United striker signed a five-year deal with the Blues and his official jersey number is yet to be released as of this writing.
Chelsea released an official statement on their website to confirm the return of Romelu Lukaku on Thursday evening.
“Romelu Lukaku is back in Chelsea blue. One of the most prolific strikers in European football, Lukaku has returned to the club he supported as a young boy and where he has unfinished business, having been on our books between 2011 and 2014,” the club stated.
Lukaku missed out on the Blues Super Cup triumph over Villarreal last night but will hope to win the English Premier League this season.
