Romelu Lukaku was persuaded to join AS Roma on loan from Chelsea after speaking with Jose Mourinho over the phone.

  • Lukaku is scheduled to join Roma on loan.
  • Mourinho phoned Lukaku to persuade him.
  • Lukaku is ultimately departing Chelsea.


WHAT OCCURED? This summer, Lukaku will eventually leave Chelsea after agreeing to a loan deal with AS Roma. According to the Independent, the trade was completed when Roma manager Mourinho called the attacker and persuaded him to return to Italy.

THE GENERAL IMAGE: The 30-year-old was allegedly informed by Mourinho, who previously worked with Lukaku at Chelsea, “We have a good team but we are missing a champion.” The manager also described how Lukaku will complement Paulo Dybala up front for Roma.

Following the expiration of his loan agreement with Inter at the end of the 2022–23 season, Lukaku returned to London this summer. Although a move to Inter this summer was first predicted, it ultimately did not happen. He was also said to be interested in moving to Juventus, but that wouldn’t have happened until the Bianconeti let Dusan Vlahovic go. As a result, when Mourinho called, Lukaku accepted the offer right away.
