The Loan agreement with Chelsea for Romelu Lukaku will be negotiated by Cristiano Giuntoli, the sporting director of Juventus FC, who will visit England in the coming days.
Giuntoli reportedly departed Juventus’ preseason tour of the US early in order to start discussions with the Blues this weekend.
Lukaku, who joined Chelsea at the sum of £97.5m in 2021, still works out by himself at the club’s Cobham facility.
Mauricio Pochettino did not include the Belgian in his 29-man Chelsea preseason team, which is also in the US.
The 30-year-old Romelu Lukaku is determined to go back to Italy, where he hopes to become the focal point of the Juventus offence.
Giuntoli is anticipated to expedite negotiations with Chelsea in order to fulfil a commitment to Lukaku, who is said to be worried about the lack of development in the discussions.
Although the striker and Juventus reached a personal deal over a month ago, there is still no agreement between the two organisations.
Lukaku spent the previous season on loan at the San Siro, and it was initially anticipated that he would return to Inter Milan.
After learning that Romelu Lukaku was in talks with Juventus, Inter withdrew from a potential trade.
Lukaku would prefer to be on loan with a purchase option for Juventus at the end of the upcoming campaign.
This would enable the Old Lady to sign Lukaku right away, even if Dusan Vlahovic is still in the team.
Despite PSG’s interest, Juventus is willing to trade Vlahovic but has not yet received any formal proposals for the Serbian international.
Juventus has been compelled to pursue a loan rather than a permanent move because it cannot be certain that they will be able to sell Vlahovic for a sizable fee.
