Romelu Lukaku has spent 3 years on the books at Stamford Bridge between 2011 and 2014 but left without a goal in his name in 15 appearances for the club.
However, Chelsea are now rumored to have agreed to a $ 97.5m return for Lukaku to Chelsea from Inter Milan, and reportedly received the first part of his Chelsea treatment in Italy on Monday.
According to the Daily Star, Lukaku will be heading to London on Tuesday to complete his doctorate and sign a contract until 2026, which means he can play in front of faithful Chelsea over the weekend with Patrick Vieira’s Palace.
The Belgian forward will be playing in the Super Cup on Wednesday against Villarreal if he is not registered at 11 pm on Tuesday, but the report adds that he will not join his new teammates until after their midweek fight in Belfast.
Lukaku has scored 24 goals in 36 Serie A matches against the Scudetto last year, and has previously scored 113 goals in the Premier League against West Bromwich Albion, Everton, and Manchester United.
