Roma, countdown for Romelu Lukaku

These are frantic hours for Roma, which is negotiating to the bitter end with Chelsea over the signing of Romelu Lukaku. The first meeting between Giallorossi executives and the Blues in London reportedly ended positively, with Dan Friedkin himself meeting Todd Boehly at Stamford Bridge before the Premier League match against Luton.

The deal è was struck on the basis of an onerous loan (about 10 million euros with a right of redemption), with Chelsea expected to pay part of the Belgian striker's salary.

Lukaku, who has also long been approached by Juventus, è at the moment in Brussels, ready to leave if negotiations unblock: capitolini executives hope to close by the weekend.

The Bianconeri at the moment remain at the window: in order to get back in the running for the Belgian bomber they must first sell Dusan Vlahovic, but barring any twists and turns, the Serbian bomber will remain at the Bianconeri.
