Chance to deal with ‘worst signing’ in history…£77m transfer fee + teammate’s ‘love affair’ with Saudi Arabia
Here’s your chance to get rid of one of your worst signings.
“Kalidou Koulibaly, 31, is trying to persuade Chelsea teammate Romelu Lukaku, 30, to join him,” the Express reported on Wednesday. He wants them to reunite in the Saudi Arabian league.”
Koulibaly, known as Napoli’s senior to Kim Min-jae (26), joined Chelsea ahead of the 2022-23 season. Chelsea had high hopes for the top European defender. Thiago Silva, 38, was long past his prime. However, Koulibaly struggled at Chelsea and was placed on the release list온라인바카라.
His move to Saudi Arabia is all but confirmed. According to the media, Koulibaly will join Al-Hilal for a transfer fee of £25 million. The Saudis have been scooping up top European players lately.
According to the Express, Koulibaly wants Lukaku to join him at Al-Hilal.
It’s a golden opportunity for Chelsea. Lukaku is arguably the worst offensive signing in Chelsea’s history. Despite costing £97.5 million, the club’s highest transfer fee ever, Lukaku has been a disaster at Chelsea. He even gave an interview during the season in which he expressed a desire to return to his former club Inter Milan, much to the chagrin of Chelsea officials. Eventually, Chelsea decided to send Lukaku out on loan.
Lukaku is expected to return to Chelsea before the 2023-24 season. Still, Lukaku is stubborn. He wants to move back to Inter Milan. However, the Nerazzurri’s financial situation is reportedly not good enough to make a move for Lukaku. Chelsea have also long since eliminated Lukaku from their plans.
Koulibaly’s persuasion will be welcome to Chelsea. According to the media, Al Hilal are planning to pay £77 million for Lukaku. This is a great opportunity for Chelsea to get rid of their favorite striker.
Meanwhile, Lukaku is reportedly still keen on returning to Inter Milan. Chelsea are in the midst of a major reorganization. Lukaku is their top priority.
