Roma to consider extending Lukaku’s stay only in case of Champions League qualification

Andy Mattioli

The future of Romelu Lukaku remains uncertain as the Belgian attacker enters his final months of his loan at Roma.

The Giallorossi are pleased with Lukaku’s output and the player seems to be enjoying life at the capital club.

However, La Gazzetta dello Sport suggests that for the moment it is difficult to envision Lukaku staying at Roma beyond this season.

According to the newspaper, Roma would only consider making such an investment in the case of Champions League qualification, although it remains to be seen whether the club and the new sporting director will want to rely on a 31-year-old as their starting striker.

The article suggests Roma may also choose to reintegrate Tammy Abraham who will be soon coming back from his lengthy ACL injury. The Englishman could, after all, be once again leading Roma’s attack next season.
