On Saturday, it's been reported that star striker Romelu Lukaku will be returning to Stamford Bridge on a record transfer. This is without question the biggest news of the weekend. Can Lukaku help the Blues win it all this season?
Lukaku is no stranger to Chelsea, as he previously played for the club earlier in his career. He of course also played for Everton and Manchester United. His time with the Old Trafford side didn't go as planned, with Lukaku struggling to live up to his hype. He didn't last long with United.
Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea, confirmed and here we go! The agreement is set to be completed after further talks. €115m to Inter and no players included. Paperworks to be signed once details are fixed. 🔵🤝 #CFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 7, 2021

He's been nothing short of sensational for Inter Milan since making the move to the Serie A, though, and he's also a standout for the Belgium national team. With Chelsea so hungry to bring in a striker, getting Lukaku to London is no doubt huge for them.
While the team had been linked to Erling Haaland for quite some time, Lukaku will be ready to put on a show from the moment he joins his new team. There will be plenty of pressure on the lefty to score countless goals, but he was born to do that.
With Lukaku in the mix, everyone will wait to see just how big of a year the reigning Champions League winners can have. Fans can start dreaming about a run at the league title. That's how big this Lukaku addition is.
