Lukaku signs for Roma on loan from Chelsea

Romelu Lukaku has joined Roma from Chelsea on a season-long loan.

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.

Lukaku links up with former Chelsea head coach Jose Mourinho, who took Roma to the Europa League final last season.

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.
