Romelu Lukaku all set to join Atletico Madrid on loan

Share

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku produced a superb cameo display against USA, as Belgium moved into the quarterfinals of the World Cup in Brazil.

lukaku Deal almost done, Chelsea star off to Spain, waiting for official confirmation

The highly rated youngster is all set to leave Chelsea and join Atletico Madrid in the summer on a season long loan. The Blues have already agreed a deal for Diego Costa and may bring in another quality striker as well. In such a scenario, Lukaku would drop down the pecking orders at the club and hence Chelsea have decided to sell him on loan yet again.

Lukaku joined Chelsea in 2011 from Anderlecht but has only managed 10 league games so far for the Blues. He was sent on loan to West Brom, where he scored 17 league goals and last season scored 15 league goals (also on loan) for Everton.

While many had expected that he would be drafted into the senior squad this time around but it seems Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has other ideas.

According to El Confidencial, the 21-year-old will join Atletico Madrid after the World Cup gets over. The deal has been agreed and the Belgian is just waiting for an official confirmation.

  14. Good move

  15. Thats a good option from the special one. But they should offload demba Ba as well.

  16. Nice one.

  17. Nice one 4 my boy lukaku. Just go there and prove mourihno wrong once again cos he doesn’t value any player that was not bought by him. Cos him thinks he knows all that why he always do mistake. And finally is high time we start giving our youngsters chance to prove their worth cos it doesn’t make sense acquiring the best young player in the whole world without giving them a chance to perform instead loan all the time which is wrong. Not. Buying already made all the time. Good luck, Good luck lukaku and Good fans God bless us Amen!

  20. Its a nice deal we like it that way, but let the loan not be longer then neccessary, we still need him..goodluck!

  21. I prefer selling of torres & giving lukaku chance to shine

  22. lukaku is a good striker than ba and torres for now

  23. I think it’s right for Lukaku not to play on loan again. So it’s a good transaction for Lukaku.

  24. Remmy need chance@chelsea loanin him dis time is a big mistake.

  25. I dont kmw wat’s wrong wit mouriho,y cant him leave lukaku,instead of buy another person wit costa,i no support mouriho buh i wish lukaku well anywhere he goes.

  26. My Opinion is that chelseafc really love Lukaku and wouldnt wanna sale him for whatever price, thats why they are sending him to atheletico Not only for a champions league experience but also to experience the pressure of a top four.
