Chelsea must offload Romelu Lukaku
Chelsea should get rid of striker Romelu Lukaku and ‘send him off in a cab’ back to Inter Milan this summer, according to talkSPORT’s Simon Jordan.
The former Crystal palace claimed getting a £20m loan fee for the striker would be a good deal, arguing
He told talkSPORT: “It’s interesting that they are going to put him out on loan and want a £20m loan fee because it means they can keep him on their balance sheet and still demand money for him.
“So if Chelsea can keep him on their balance sheet and put him out on loan and get £20m for him, they are actually making a monetary transaction that makes financial sense.
“In 18 months time or a year’s time, Inter might then find themselves in a better position and Chelsea might be able to punt Lukaku out for £70m or £80m, and they will actually make money from a transaction.
“So from a footballing point of view, if Tuchel doesn’t want him then it’s a no-brainer, he’s got to go.
““He’s already made his position clear, he’s already virtue signalled his way back to the Italian fans by telling them, ‘I would like to come home one day’ – well, off you go then, we’ll send you there in a cab!”
