The Belgian has just completed medical tests before signing with the Blues, leaving for England by evening
Last act between Lukaku and Inter. Although the official transfer to Chelsea is still missing, the Belgian has made the final step before signing the contract that will tie him to the Blues for the next four seasons, with a net salary of 12 million per year (plus 3 bonus) .
The last step was taken at the Columbus clinic in Milan, where Big Rom carried out the usual medical examinations. Accompanied by his agent, the Belgian arrived at the clinic around 13.40, to return home about 40 minutes later. The tests have given positive results, now all that remains is to formalize the transfer.

Departure within the day
As aired late yesterday, Lukaku will leave Milan in the day for London, where (barring sensational surprises) he will sign a rich contract with the Blues. The Belgian will fly to London on a private plane to go immediately to Abramovich’s club headquarters. The attacker has already greeted his former teammates in Appiano, and is ready to dive into the new adventure.
Both Lukaku and Chelsea expect to close as soon as possible, in order to allow Tuchel to have the player available for the European Super Cup against Villarreal on Wednesday evening. It remains only to understand if and when the Belgian will also decide to greet the Nerazzurri fans who have showered him with affection in the last two years. At the moment, absolute silence reigns on the player’s social profiles, while the anger and disappointment of the Nerazzurri people mount by the hour.
