Fabrizio Romano reports agreement between the clubs is done for the transfer of Chelsea striker

Journalist Fabrizio Romano says there is an “agreement” between the clubs to make transfer of Chelsea striker easy. Romano was speaking on his ‘Daily Briefing’ where he shares the Chelsea news. It was all about Romelu Lukaku on Caughtoffside. The big Belgian forward recently bagged 4 goals in the Euro qualifiers. Moreover, he is the top scorer as well of the competition. Owing to his performances, Belgium qualifies for the Euro 2024 going to be in Germany.

Romano explains about the purchase option in the deal from Chelsea

The striker is looking back in form with a strong start to his season. He recently secured a move from Chelsea to Italian club AS Roma on loan. Furthermore, they are also keen on securing a permanent transfer for the Big Rom. According to Romano, there is no solid purchase deal option in the clause, though both parties know where they stand. There is a “gentleman’s agreement” in the deal regarding the purchase option. Romano said,

From what I’m told, Romelu Lukaku has something like a release clause, but not a proper release clause.

There is a gentleman’s agreement between the player’s agents and Chelsea, because they don’t want a situation like a few months ago in the summer transfer window when they had to negotiate with Juventus, then with Inter, then with Roma – it was a very complicated summer for Chelsea around the Lukaku story, and so there is now a possibility for him to leave for €40m – and that’s not just for Roma, that’s for any club.

From what I’m told, Roma still have no clarity on what will happen next season with some key figures, such as manager Jose Mourinho and director Tiago Pinto – it’s therefore too early for Roma to decide if they can pay that money for Lukaku. We’ll have to see around March/April when things will become more clear.”
