His future remains a question mark, but Romelu Lukaku (30) remains on the front page of the news in Italy. This time, the Red Devil got to the front of ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’ with a sharp interview with Inter legend and vice-president Javier Zanetti. “We are very disappointed in him.”
Where will Romelu Lukaku play next season? An open question that no one knows the answer to at the moment. The Red Devils’ all-time top scorer certainly has no future at Chelsea, the club he still owns to this day. Lukaku was not allowed to tour the United States and had to train separately. Yesterday, the new coach, Mauricio Pochettino, closed the door by not assigning a number to our compatriot.
Also, a new stay at Inter was no longer possible after courting Juventus – this story is now well known. Lukaku helped the Nerazzuri win the national title in 2020, but he’s now persona non grata at Milan. Fellows and fans feel betrayed.
She plays “La Gazzetta dello Sport” with passion. Yesterday, The Pink Sport published some of the ex-players, ex-coaches and well-known Juventus fans who have spoken out against Lukaku’s arrival. La Gazzetta’s position on the front page almost daily – and often negatively – is not surprising – the newspaper is headquartered in Milan. Other Italian media such as “Tuttosport”, “Corriere dello Sport” and “Corriere della Sera” give more positive reports.
look. Juventus fans don’t want Lukaku at their club
So today it was the turn of Inter legend and vice-president Javier Zanetti to have his say. The first page reads in large print: “Romelo has betrayed us. We are very disappointed in him. We expected completely different behavior from him, as a professional but also as a person.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea are still in contact with Juventus through intermediaries, which Lukaku hopes to achieve via an exchange deal that should also include Dusan Vlahovic. Juventus are hoping to sell the Serb to Chelsea for Lukaku plus another €40-50m. The problem: Not everyone at Chelsea is convinced of Vlahović. Although Londoners want the expensive Lukaku removed from the payroll as soon as possible, they are not eager to get involved in building for that amount at the moment.
Lukaku is waiting for Juventus and Coach Allegri absolutely wants him, but this does not apply to the fans. The ultras in curva sud again make a sign that “Big Rom” is not welcome in Turin for them. Lukaku, stay in Milan. “We already have a second goalkeeper.”
Soap will undoubtedly last.
