Some parties think that Chelsea made a mistake if they recruited Romelu Lukaku, because the player is not as fast as he used to be. Rio Ferdinand has another opinion.
Chelsea are reportedly one step away from signing Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan. Lukaku was redeemed for 130 million Euros or equivalent to Rp 1.3 trillion.
In fact, reportedly, the Belgian player has already done a medical test. So soon, Lukaku will return to his former home at Stamford Bridge.
Some parties think that Chelsea made a mistake if they recruited Romelu Lukaku. Glen Johnson, for example, the former Blues player, thinks that Lukaku doesn’t have as good a running speed as before.
“Lukaku is physically strong, but unfortunately he’s not as fast as he used to be,” he said The Sun.
“He can score a lot of goals in other leagues, but he doesn’t seem to fit in with the Premier League anymore,” he added.

Football pundit who is also a Manchester United player, Rio Ferdinand has another opinion. Precisely for him, Romelu Lukaku is perfect for Chelsea!
“Imagine if Timo Werner’s chances in the Premier League last season were completed by Lukaku. So, Lukaku can score at least 20 goals,” he explained.
According to Ferdinand, Chelsea already have a lot of players who run fast. In particular, his young children.
Therefore, Romelu Lukaku can be the perfect complement. It is believed, Lukaku can be the target man who will be in charge of completing the final opportunity.
“The other players have pace and will open up space for Lukaku,” said Ferdinand.
“Romelu Lukaku will guarantee at least 20 goals for Chelsea a season. He is able to score goals from any position. He is an elite goalscorer, as simple as that,” he concluded.
