A situation Chelsea were convinced to avoid, and are now sure they can sell the now ex-Nerazurri outright ahead of a call-up, now seems inevitable. In fact, the player has informed Pochettino that he will be at the team’s training center on Monday.


Lukaku was initially called up by Chelsea on Wednesday, and new boss Mauricio Pochettino was waiting for him in his office “first of all to say hello, like all my players.” Thanks to what appeared to be the rapid development of negotiations with Inter, however, Lukaku has been allowed not to feature this week, with Cobham’s call-up delayed until Monday. When neither Pochettino nor the rest of his teammates are there to greet, which the Belgian doesn’t want, given that Chelsea are leaving for the tour in the US for which the Belgian obviously wasn’t called up. Lukaku will find two more unwanted players: Pierre Aubameyang and Hakim Ziyech, like him awaiting accommodation.
