LUK OUT FOR MORE
Chelsea are offering Inter Milan star Romelu Lukaku a higher salary than the one he earned at Manchester United.
Eurosport’s Dean Jones told The Football Terrace: “When Chelsea first touched base with Lukaku about what they’d be offering, Man City were kind of in the conversation as well.
“They’d actually offered more money to Lukaku in terms of an initial financial payment, what his wages would be and so on.
“And so, Chelsea weren’t really in the same ballpark. But, since then, things have changed.
“Chelsea have increased their offer, they’re now willing to pay Lukaku not just more than he’s on at Inter Milan but more than he earned at Manchester United.
“He took a pay cut to go to Inter Milan, at United he was on around £200,000-a-week.
“He’ll be getting more than that if he goes to Chelsea, probably closer to £250,000-a-week from what I’m told.
“This is advancing, this story is moving all the time. Yesterday I took so many calls on it because suddenly it became a live story”
