Romelu Lukaku’s future with AS Roma remains uncertain as the Belgian striker continues his one-year loan spell in the Italian capital. Despite his impressive performance, scoring 15 goals in 27 appearances across all competitions, Lukaku’s fate with Roma is hanging in the balance.
According to recent reports from Il Messaggero, there are currently no active negotiations between Roma and Chelsea for a permanent deal for Lukaku. In an interesting development, Chelsea have reportedly offered Roma a special discount on Lukaku’s price tag, reducing it to €30 million.
As things stand, Roma may find it challenging to meet the reduced €30 million price tag for Lukaku. The financial limitations at the club may hinder the possibility of securing Lukaku on a permanent basis.
The only glimmer of hope for the Giallorossi in retaining Lukaku hinges on the team’s qualification for the Champions League. If the secure a spot in the prestigious competition, the financial landscape could shift, potentially altering the possibility of a permanent deal for Lukaku.
