Romelu Lukaku in Rome

A well-planned and highly desired initiative by the Friedkins has resulted in an even stronger union between the city of Rome and the Giallorossi club. A union strengthened by the presence of Romelu Lukaku, the'huge market coup wanted at all costs by the American ownership to increase the competitiveness of José Mourinho’s team and, at the same time, excite the square with another "stellar" surprise (after the arrival of the Special One and Paulo Dybala).

According to a report revealed by Gazzetta dello Sport, to celebrate Romelu Lukaku's arrival in the capital and the signing of the contract that officially enshrined him as a Roma player, the club organized a photo shoot a stone’s throw from the Colosseum. It was an initiative that should have remained top secret, as evidenced by the extraordinary security measures taken: the area overlooking the Colosseum è was closed to the public at 6:30 p.m., an hour earlier than planned, with security officers and DIgos agents closely monitoring the area, which was monitored as best as possible with the use of a drone.

The Belgian striker è arrived around 7:28 p.m. and posed with the Giallorossi jersey in one of the most characteristic and representative places in the capital: the Palatine Forum, located inside the Colosseum archaeological park. With the Flavian Amphitheater in the background and the lights of the Roman sunset as a backdrop, Romelu took his first photos as a Romanista in a place that encapsulates the history and magnificence of the eternal city. An afternoon destined to remain indelible in the memory of Roma’s number 90. Looking forward to the goals and goals to be achieved together with José Mourinho, the Giallorossi team and his new fans.
