The story of Romelu Lukaku’s transfer from Chelsea to Everton (on loan in 2013 and on a permanent deal in 2014) is much like that of Pogba from Manchester United to Juventus in 2012.
Just a few weeks after the Everton striker inflicted more pain on Chelsea when he scored 2 goals against them in March, Chelsea are now interested in buying back the Belgium man.
The 22-year-old Belgium striker has expressed his desire to leave Everton for a top club this summer, and he believes he still has something to offer his former employers, who only gave him one chance to start for the team in the Premier league in three years.
He was also loaned to West Brom and Everton, and finally sold to Everton for £28, a move he says he did not like. He only left because he wanted to play regularly, and Chelsea was not ready to give him that opportunity, given that he was not in Mourinho’s plans that time.
According to reports, Lukaku will cost Chelsea more than £56, since a buy back clause does not exist. Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich and Manchester United are also interested in the striker, whose confidence in front of goal has helped him score 25 goals this season for his team this season. However, Chelsea are the favorites to sign the in-demand striker.
