Romelu Lukaku is set to rejoin Chelsea and return to the Premier League.
For Chelsea fans it is a great moment, to bring back a striker many will feel they should never have sold back in 2014.
If there is one thing they will not want to see right now, it is Lukaku’s choice of words upon joining Manchester United in 2017.
Lukaku described Manchester United as ‘the greatest club in the world’. It is a statement Chelsea fans would rather not see, and would prefer Lukaku never made.
Lukaku spent two seasons at Manchester United where he gave it his best shot, but his spell was not really a success.
A promising first season went backwards in his second, and Jose Mourinho was fired midway through.
Lukaku was sold in 2019 to join Inter Milan, where he has enjoyed a more successful time, scoring more goals than he did at United and winning the Serie A title.
Now he will be back in the Premier League attempting to show he is an improved player, rather than just one who looked better by playing in a different league.
He just won’t be doing it for the team he considers to be greatest football club in the world.
