Chelsea stops Lukaku, Vlahovic swap deal with Juventus

lukaku - Lagospost.ng

Chelsea have reportedly halted negotiations with Juventus over a swap deal involving Romelu Lukaku and Dusan Vlahovic.

The Blues pulled out of the deal after Juventus demanded €40 million and Lukaku in exchange for Vlahovic, as they only intend to offer nothing more than €20 million and Lukaku for the Serbian forward.

Chelsea who announced their squad numbers for the 22/23 season on Tuesday excluded the Belgian from the list of players and are looking to offload him as soon as possible.

The 30-year-old striker was signed from Inter Milan for £97.5 million in 2021 and a return to the Nerrazurri, where he spent the 22/23 season on loan is impossible after the club’s Vice President Javier Zanetti accused Lukaku of betraying the club.

“Lukaku has betrayed us. We’re very disappointed. We expected completely different behaviour by Romelu, as professional but also as a man.”

Chelsea are set to explore the option of Saudi Pro League to let go of the striker within the transfer window.
