Chelsea star agrees another Saudi Arabia deal to ease FFP concerns amid points deduction warning

Chelsea continue to be linked with a busy few transfer windows ahead, which could confirm a permanent exit for Romelu Lukaku.

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku  has already agreed a move to Saudi Arabia next summer, with a contract said to be worth “millions”, according to a recent report. The Belgian forward has struggled to confirm a permanent exit from the club following his far from ideal return.

The Blues splashed out just shy of £100million to bring the striker back to Stamford Bridge, with the need to add a goal scorer to their ranks. He started off well under Thomas Tuchel, finding his scoring touch and bringing a tangible threat to the side that saw them competing for the Premier League early on.

That tailed off as injury and fitness issues struck, mixed with an interview from the player that criticised how he was being deployed by the head coach. Relations seemed torn from the point on as he made little impact afterwards, going on to rejoin Inter Milan on loan the following campaign.

Hopeful of a full sale, Lukaku continued to be linked with a move, but appeared to sour the relationship he had with the Nerazzurri with suggestions he could join a rival. His former club signed new forward options, leaving Lukaku with a choice between a switch to Saudi Arabia or another loan deal.

He opted for the later, joining up with Jose Mourinho at AS Roma, pushing questions over a permanent Chelsea exit further down the road. There has been uncertainty over his future since, but it appears as though that could well be solved soon, bringing the whole saga to an end.
