- Lukaku to leave Chelsea
- Expected to join AS Roma on loan
- Forward is "nervous" amid speculation
WHAT HAPPENED? The Belgian striker has been linked with a move to Rome after he decided he wanted to snub Juventus to join the Giallorossi. It will be a loan deal with no obligation to buy which will see Lukaku reunite with Mourinho after working together at Manchester United.
However, according to HLN, the striker, who is currently in Belgium, feels "nervous" before his proposed move.
WHAT THEY SAID: “I am nervous. Tomorrow I'm flying to Rome to sign," he said while attending a youth tournament where his son Romeo was playing for Anderlecht
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Mourinho is eager to reinforce his attack with Lukaku but the manager has said only that he is "quietly waiting" to see how his team reinforce their attack. Lukaku is not in Mauricio Pochettino's plans for the new season and has been training with Chelsea's Under 21 squad.
