Lukaku to play in Eternal City?

Controversial Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku has found himself a new club in the final days of the transfer window! The player will spend the next year at Roma, where he went from Chelsea on loan.

Lukaku is only 30 years old, but it seems that he has been in football for ages. Yes, Romelu did not take really serious trophies, but he regularly scored goals, playing for Everton, Chelsea, Manchester United and Inter. Moreover, the last three clubs paid a total of 270 million euros for the transfer of the Belgian! That's how they appreciated the ramming power of the Belgian, his ability to play with his head and good, as for such dimensions, forward technique.

However, the last couple of years, Lukaku's career has been going downhill, and this summer he even threw a real tantrum. It turned out that Romelu was not particularly needed at Chelsea, and it turned out to be impossible to stay on loan at Inter, as the 30-year-old Belgian fell out with teammates. Lukaku's agent also entered the game, sending him to Juventus, then advising him to stay at Chelsea and still compete for a place in the starting lineup.

In the end, the battle for the player was won by Roma, who, under the leadership of Mourinho, performs well in the continental arena, but in the league it constantly finishes outside the top 4. All this is due to the lack of a driving forward. The main scorer of the Giallorossi, Tammy Abraham, is seriously injured, and Andrea Belotti just now scored his first goals in Serie A in almost a year and a half.

Loaned Romelu Lukaku is likely to be an important element in José Mourinho's simplistic football, involving frequent crosses and efficient work from set-pieces. The forward will have no problems with discipline, because The Special One is not a joke. The main thing is that there are no injuries, and 10-15 goals from the Belgian is only a matter of time.

As part of Roma, Lukaku will try to revive his career, which has rapidly regressed. And also to prove to the whole world that image scandals are a thing of the past, and ahead is hard work in training and professionalism of the highest level.
