Lukaku set to sign for Roma from Chelsea

Romelu Lukaku is expected to formally sign his season-long loan deal with Roma today after undergoing a medical on Tuesday.

The move is a straight loan with a fee worth between £7m to £8m depending on performance-related conditions.

Roma will cover Lukaku's wages after he agreed to a salary cut for the remaining three years of his Chelsea contract.

There is a release clause in his contract too, thought to be in the region of £38m.

Roma officials Ryan Friedkin and Tiago Pinto flew to London last weekend for face-to-face talks with Chelsea over a deal to bring Lukaku to the Italian capital for the season.

Lukaku spent last season on loan at Inter Milan after he fell out of favour at Chelsea following a controversial interview in which he said he was not happy under former head coach Thomas Tuchel.
