At times over the past two and a half years it felt as if Manchester United had made a mistake by selling Romelu Lukaku.
The Belgian international was excellent during his two years with Inter Milan, scoring 64 goals in 95 games.
His striking Serie A form convinced Chelsea to bring Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge, seven years after he left the Blues for Everton in search of regular first-team football.
Chelsea spent £ 97.5 million on the 28-year-old, who seemed delighted to be back at the club he supported as a youngster.
Lukaku started running during his second spell on Chelsea, scoring three goals in his first four Premier League appearances.
He recently added two more league goals to his account, but his season has been hampered by injuries.
Lukaku also made it clear during a recent controversial interview with Sky Sport Italia that he is far from happy with life under Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge as things stand. He also expressed his desire to return to Inter while he is still in his prime.
Tuchel, who left his great striker out of the Chelsea squad for Sunday’s 2-2 draw against Liverpool, met with Lukaku on Monday.
