Outsmart oneself? Romelu Lukaku loses Saudi offer and remains convinced to play for Juve
On August 21, Beijing time, Italy's "Rome Sport Daily" broke the news that after rejecting the invitation of Riyadh Crescent, there is currently no Saudi team to offer Belgian center Romelu Lukaku. With the new season in Serie A in the Premier League already kicked off, Romelu Lukaku still believes he can play at Juve. It's just that how much this insistence is possible, it is estimated that he himself does not know.
Last season, Romelu Lukaku worked hard at Inter's back-to-back to secure the top three Serie A teams in the Champions League final, and also successfully impressed Inter's senior management to buy him out. However, while the Nerazzurri and Chelsea agreed on a price point of 40 million, Romelu Lukaku and the lawyer in charge of his transfer played missing, and the phone did not answer the text message. It turned out that this was done because Juve offered a more generous contract, in which Lukaku immediately abandoned his commitment to Inter and brothers who played side by side with Lautaro and was bent on joining Juve, which he had previously claimed never to join.
After that, Inter decisively withdrew their offer and completely broke with Romelu Lukaku. After beating Monza 2-0 in the first round of Serie A, Inter captain Lautaro was reluctant to say much when asked about Romelu Lukaku, making it clear that he is now a Chelsea player. Of course, Chelsea just want to sell him.
The point is that Juve's offer to exchange Lukakuka for cash for Vlahovic has been rejected by Chelsea, and while the Bianconeri are still in contact with Romelu Lukaku's agent, it has become increasingly difficult for the two sides to reach a deal. In addition, it is worth mentioning that in the first round of Serie A on August 21, Juve beat Udinese 3-0 away to get the start of the new season, and Vlahovic started with a good pass and a shot, and the performance was remarkable. This is expected to make Romelu Lukaku even more desperate.
Of course, Romelu Lukaku's arrival at Juventus is not without hope. Because also in the early hours of this morning, Chelsea lost 3-1 away to West Ham United in the second round of the Premier League, there are still many problems in attack, and with new signing Nkunku injured and absent, the Blues still lack a killer who can hit the nail on the head. And Vlahovic's first-round Serie A pass may have moved the Blues to reconsider his arrival. This is Romelu Lukaku's last chance.
