chelsea officially announce romelu lukaku's loan move to roma, reuniting with former manager jose mourinho

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is set to join Roma on loan, reuniting with his former manager Jose Mourinho. The Belgian forward has struggled for game time at Chelsea and will now have the opportunity to reignite his career in Italy.

Lukaku joined Chelsea from Anderlecht in 2011 but failed to establish himself as a regular starter during his first spell at the club. He was subsequently loaned out to West Bromwich Albion and Everton before eventually leaving permanently for Manchester United in 2017.

After a successful stint at Manchester United, Lukaku returned to Chelsea in 2021. However, he has found himself behind the likes of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz in the pecking order under manager Thomas Tuchel.

With limited playing time at Stamford Bridge, Lukaku has decided to seek a loan move away from the club. The opportunity to reunite with Mourinho at Roma proved enticing for the 28-year-old, who previously worked with the Portuguese manager during their time together at Manchester United.

Lukaku’s loan move to Roma is expected to provide him with the regular minutes he craves and the chance to showcase his abilities on the pitch. The Belgian international will be hoping to make a significant impact in Serie A and help Roma achieve their objectives for the season.

Mourinho, who took charge of Roma in the summer, will be delighted to have Lukaku at his disposal. The Portuguese manager has always held the striker in high regard and believes he can make a valuable contribution to the team.

It remains to be seen whether Lukaku’s loan move will lead to a permanent transfer in the future. However, for now, the focus will be on his performances for Roma and the opportunity to prove his worth once again.

Lukaku’s loan move to Roma is expected to be finalized in the coming days, subject to medical examinations and other formalities. Once the deal is complete, the Belgian striker will join his new teammates and begin preparing for the upcoming season in Italy.
