Romelu Lukaku gets date to commence Chelsea training



Romelu Lukaku is expected to be be involved for Chelsea against Arsenal on Sunday in a Premier League clash after a quarantine period after his £97.5m return to Stamford Bridge.

The Belgian international will train with his Chelsea team-mates for the first time on Tuesday after a quarantine period following his club-record £97.5m move from Inter Milan.

He returned to Chelsea this week, 10 years after he first signed for the club as a teenager from Anderlecht.

The striker struggled to make an impression during his first spell – failing to score in 15 appearances – and moved to Everton in 2014 before joining Inter, via Manchester United.

But after two outstanding years at Inter, scoring 24 goals in Serie A last season to help them to their first Italian title in 11 years, Lukaku said returning to Chelsea was the “chance of a lifetime”.

Lukaku had previously said he would remain at San Siro for the 2021/22 campaign but changed his mind and asked Inter to arrange to sell him to Chelsea after it became clear the club wanted to make his return a reality.
