Romelu Lukaku’s move to Roma is still being talked about as one of the more surprising transfers of the summer.

The Belgian striker agreed to join the Giallorossi on loan from Chelsea in the final days of the transfer window.

However, reports in England are claiming that Chelsea may have wanted to keep Lukaku at Stamford Bridge after all.

According to TeamTalk, Chelsea made an attempt to convince Lukaku to stay with Mauricio Pochettino being open to the possibility of working with him this season.

Lukaku, however, insisted on parting ways with the Blues and pushed to join Roma instead.
