It seems going to the Middle East for soccer players has become quotidian as yet another transfer may happen. This time, it might be Lukaku who has received a call from Saudi. As per the reports from French journalist Santi Aouna, Messi’s ex-suitors, Al Hilal, are interested in Belgium.

Aouna reports that Lukaku sat down with the Gulf club’s representatives yesterday in a large Parisian hotel. Al Hilal has reportedly offered $20 million per year to the former Everton striker, but he expects more. The move will significantly double his net worth, as he earned $8.6 million at Inter.

However, his loan spell has ended with the Italians, and has returned to Chelsea. The Blues are looking to sell their $122 million man, who came from Inter in 2021. But his poor form and his desire to play for his former side instigated the PL side to send him back. Perhaps now he isn’t fancied by either side, as Al Hilal seems to be the only option for the 30-year-old.

Either way, the jury is still out on his transfer to the Saudi Pro League. Nonetheless, despite enduring uncertainty in his professional life the Belgian is clearly enjoying his personal life as he was recently seen with Megan Thee Stallion.

Is he dating Megan Thee Stallion?

Lukaku was recently spotted with American rapper Megan Thee Stallion. Both were seen together attending the wedding reception of Inter’s Lautaro Martinez. The Argentinian tied the knot with model Agustina Gandolfo. The reception took place in Italy at a five-star hotel in Lake Como.
