Graham Potter is said to have lost faith in the abilities of Romelu Lukaku, the Chelsea striker, and it’s possible that he will be moving to the Saudi Pro League. The Belgian player is at Inter Milan on loan right now.
However, when that loan deal comes to an end at the end of the season, Lukaku, who is 29 years old, is likely to return to Stamford Bridge. In 19 competition games, he has scored five goals and provided one assist, but his season at the San Siro has been hampered by injuries.
Football Insider reports that Bury are probably not going to seek after re-marking Lukaku in the mid year. Nerazzuri and numerous other European teams have been put off by his lackluster performance.
With Saudi officials looking to raise the league’s profile following Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival, a move to Saudi Arabia is a possibility. In January, the icon of Portugal joined Al Nassr.
Potter, Chelsea’s manager, is said to have no faith in Lukaku’s ability to score goals again and help the team’s goalscoring issues. Together, they have scored just 29 league goals this season. It is anticipated that the Blues will enter the market for a significant center forward signing.
As a result, Lukaku might be forced to think about moving to Saudi Arabia. European suitors are also turning away from him because of his £325,000 salary, but this shouldn’t be a problem in the Middle East.
In January, Ronaldo signed a two-year contract with Al Nassr worth a reported £175 million per year. The Belgian striker may travel to Saudi Arabia like the former Manchester United attacker.
In 2021, he left Inter for Chelsea for a record-breaking £97.5 million. He oversaw 15 objectives in 44 games during the 2021-22 season. He did, however, lose favor with former manager Thomas Tuchel and appears to no longer have Potter’s faith.
According to Foot Mercato, Chelsea maintain constant communication with Campos, the PSG advisor. The freelancing Portuguese transfer guru is developing a working relationship with the Blues.
Campos, who joined PSG in the summer of 2017, is regarded as one of Europe’s best coaches. He has, however, had a challenging time at the Parc des Princes.
The Parisians’ flimsy season under Christophe Galtier has generally been accused on Campos’ exchange business. His circumstance with the Ligue 1 side has been portrayed as illogical. Together with the president of the club, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, he watched as PSG lost to Rennes 2-0 at home.
Chelsea co-proprietor Todd Boehly has rolled out various improvements to his enlistment group at Stamford Extension. Given his experience and contacts, including Campos on that list could be extremely beneficial.
