#7 Romelu Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku Is Currently On Loan At AS Roma

A formidable center-forward on his day, Romelu Lukaku initially joined Chelsea from Anderlecht in July 2011. However, he did not get a chance to become a first-team regular and was loaned out to West Bromwich Albion the following summer. Chelsea re-signed the Belgian attacker for a club-record €113 million ($122.63 million) fee in August 2021, owing to his blistering performances that helped Inter Milan to the Serie A title in 2020-21. Surprisingly, the move did not work out, with the player openly expressing his desire to return to Inter Milan. Chelsea sanctioned a loan to Inter for 2022-23 but a permanent move did not materialize. He is currently plying his trade at AS Roma and will return to Stamford Bridge in July.

Sandwiched between Lukaku’s chaotic Chelsea spells was a forgettable stint at Manchester United. The club signed him from Everton for €84.7 million ($91.92 million) in 2017 and sold him to Inter for €74 million ($80.31 million) a couple of seasons later. Lukaku played 96 matches for the Mancunians in that period, scoring 42 times and providing 13 assists.
