Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea: Blues ‘will consider reunion’ if Haaland transfer fails

Chelsea will reportedly consider bringing Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge if they fail to win the race for Erling Haaland’s signature this summer.

Haaland has emerged as the most sought-after player in European football this season, having produced a marvellous return of 33 goals in 31 games for Borussia Dortmund.

Much like a host of other clubs, it is believed Chelsea are desperate to get their hands on the 20-year-old striker when the summer transfer window opens.

They will have fierce competition, nevertheless, as Manchester City, Manchester United, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris St-Germain are also said to be keen.

But according to The Telegraph, Chelsea will turn their attention to a potential reunion with Lukaku if their pursuit of Haaland proves unsuccessful.

The Belgian frontman is enjoying a sensational season at Inter Milan, scoring 25 goals in 34 appearances for Antonio Conte’s runaway Serie A leaders.

Nevertheless, with Inter reportedly enduring financial difficulties right now, they may be tempted to cash in on their star striker if the right offer comes in this summer.

And reports suggest Chelsea are weighing up the possibility of re-signing their former player, who made 15 appearances in an unsuccessful three-year stint at the club.

After completing a £10million move to the Bridge in 2011, Lukaku featured 12 times in his debut Blues campaign before spending the next two out on loan at West Brom and Everton.

He then sealed a permanent £28million switch to Goodison Park in 2014, where he developed into one of the most promising forwards in European football.

An eye-watering £75million move to Manchester United came next in 2017, with the Red Devils beating former side Chelsea and Conte to his signature.

But just two years later, Lukaku was offloaded to Inter for a similar price despite scoring a respectable 42 goals in 96 games.
