Erling Haaland to Man City and the Romelu Lukaku decision leaving Chelsea in a familiar position
Even with the process of Chelsea finding new owners ongoing and sanctions preventing the Blues from being able to agree to new contracts or complete any form of transfer, with eight matches left of the season, it’s impossible to not start thinking about the transfer window.
The Blues brought in three players last summer including Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Bettinelli, and Saul Niguez. A quieter window than many expected, but the £97.5million move for the Belgian definitely showed significant outlay.Information Guide Nigeria
Lukaku has netted 12 goals over the course of the season, one every 199 minutes. That’s bettered only by Timo Werner in the Chelsea squad, but has seen Lukaku drop out of the starting XI by the way of some ineffective performances, particularly in the Premier League.
There was still plenty of excitement surrounding Lukaku’s move to west London with the 28-year-old enhancing his reputation in Serie A. His style clearly added to Nevins’s surprise but the transfer was more surprising for many because the Blues were exploring the possibility of making a move for Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.

Manchester City now appear set to land the 21-year-old this summer with a £500,000-per-week deal touted in addition to significant payments to Mina Raiola and Alf-Inge Haaland for their representation in the deal. It’s a transfer that Nevin believes could make Pep Guardiola’s side ‘unstoppable’, and could have had a similar impact on Chelsea
Tuchel has not given up on Lukaku thriving at Chelsea, but Havertz has been relied upon for much of 2022 to provide goals for the Blues, and has been successful in doing so. Given the club allowed Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham to depart when Lukaku arrived in 2021, it would not seem sensible to not bring a replacement if the former Manchester United ace swiftly leaves the club.
If the decision is made to part ways with Lukaku, finding a replacement of a similar calibre will be difficult enough, particularly with Man City in the advanced stages of a move for Haaland. However, the fee and salary paid for Kepa Arrizabalaga and the difficulty of finding a suitor for the Spaniard could already be an ominous warning for any future separation with Lukaku.JAMB Result
