Romelu Lukaku ready for last dance in Rome ahead of Chelsea return

Romelu Lukaku will play out his last match with Roma at the Stadio Olimpico on the weekend as he prepares to return to Chelsea this summer.

The 31-year-old Belgian striker joined the Giallorossi on a circa €6m loan deal from the Blues last summer, a deal that doesn’t contain a permanence clause. As such, he’ll certainly return to West London ahead of the 2024-25 pre-season.

Lukaku has experienced a number of ups and downs during his year with Roma, looking far more prolific under Jose Mourinho than his successor Daniele De Rossi. He’s netted 20 goals and provided four assists in 46 matches across all competitions.

Last Olimpico dance for Lukaku
As highlighted by Il Messaggero via TMW, Lukaku is gearing up for Roma’s final home match of the 2023-24 season against Genoa on Sunday, giving him the chance to say goodbye to the fans at the Stadio Olimpico ahead of his return to Chelsea in the summer.
