The Lukaku saga finally is resolved for Chelsea

But Lukaku’s transfer saga in this summer’s transfer window was far from a simple affair. Perhaps the strongest links this summer were to Juventus. The reports stated that Chelsea were eyeing a swap deal to trade Lukaku for Juve striker Dusan Vlahovic.

However, the deal eventually fell through. This was, perhaps, because of Juventus fan’s protests against signing the Belgian striker. Juventus supporters invaded the pitch in large numbers after a pre-season friendly. Chants in Italian of “noi Lukaku non lo vogliamo” which translates to: ‘We don’t want Lukaku’ rang around the stadium as Juventus fans chanted in unison.
