Drogba Praised Lukaku for His Return to Chelsea,
The Blues’ desire to approach their man and his arrival inspired their first player
Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has hailed the return of Inter Milan midfielder Romelu Lukaku to the club in a message on his social media page.
On Saturday, soccerspen reported that Chelsea have confirmed a deal to sign the Belgium international, with a return of his £ 98 million ($ 135m) set to be announced soon.
The former Ivory Coast international, who joined Chelsea in July 2004 for nde 24m from Marseille and left after scoring 164 goals in 381 appearances, has made Lukaku’s arrival at Stamford Bridge on his social media page. .
In a recent interview, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel refused to accept whether Lukaku was among the players he intends to sign just saying “a lot of players want to join.”
“I will not talk about players who do not play well in my team. He is a fantastic player but he is an Inter player and I will not talk about him in this situation,” Tuchel said.
“You may think a lot of players want to come and join but we won’t talk about that.
“The board doesn’t give players, it doesn’t work the same way. We talk to football leaders about players, have our own ideas, and finally, we focus on players who can make our team stronger, which is a big challenge.
There are some players that we think could be the real targets and promotions with our team. I will not speak on behalf because I do not like when other coaches talk about my players. So there is hope that you understand that. ”
The 28-year-old Lukaku moved to Chelsea from 2011 to 2014 and has also appeared for West Bromwich Albion, Everton and Manchester United in the Premier League.
After leaving Chelsea, Drogba moved to China where he signed for Shanghai Shenhua and then transferred to Turkey where he made an appearance for Galatasary.
