According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea are delighted to work with Lukaku again next season. New manager Mauricio Pochettino is set to bring the striker back to Stamford Bridge. Lukaku has scored 10 goals in Serie A last season, he is said to be part of the plans of the former Tottenham manager.

Mason Mount wants to join MU, while Kai Havertz has been linked with Real Madrid. Chelsea demand £50m for Conor Gallagher, while N’Golo Kante is out of contract and set to move to Saudi Arabia.
Other players who could leave are Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech and Edouard Mendy. While Ruben Loftus-Cheek is also likely to leave after negotiating with AC Milan. Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ian Maatsen and Nathan Baxter, who spent last season on loan, are expected to find a new club.
