Romelu Lukaku has arrived in London as he gets set to complete his £98million move to Chelsea from Inter Milan.
The 28-year-old landed at Biggin Hill airport on Wednesday evening ahead of his move back to Stamford Bridge, after leaving the club back in 2014.

Lukaku passed the main part of his medical in Milan on Monday before flying to Nice for meetings with his agent Federico Pastorello in Monaco on Tuesday.
Italy’s Gazzetta dello Sport reported Lukaku flew to London’s Biggin Hill airport by private jet from Nice with his agent Federico Pastorello after spending the afternoon in Monaco.
Pastorello has confirmed on Instagram that he has extended his contract with Lukaku and will continue to represent him until 2023.
The pair were then due to fly into London to finalise his switch on Tuesday, but those plans were delayed by Inter’s bid to secure Edin Dzeko from Roma as a replacement for Lukaku.
As reported by Sky Sports, the paperwork is now with club lawyers and once everything is agreed, Lukaku is expected to sign a five-year contract worth £200,000 a week.
The now-prolific striker joined Chelsea in 2011 but made only 15 appearances and was sold to Everton in 2014 after loan spells at West Bromwich Albion. He moved to Manchester United in 2017 before heading to Italy in 2019.
Lukaku scored 24 league goals in the 2020-21 season to help Inter clinch their first Serie A title in 11 years.
