Ex-Chelsea and West Ham United footballer Paolo Di Canio has shown how happy he is to see Romelu Lukaku join his former team from Inter, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media.
Speaking whilst on Sky Sport, Paolo Di Canio expressed his happiness at seeing a striker of Romelu Lukaku’s quality join Chelsea to increase their chances of winning the Premier League title this season.
As Paolo Di Canio points out, Chelsea had multiple games last season where they were ahead but did not score more goals to see the game out and secure the points. With Romelu Lukaku in the team, Paolo Di Canio thinks he can be the difference between draws and wins for Chelsea.
“With Lukaku, he adds something more. When Chelsea broke up the games last year they kept them in the balance, they did not close them. The team was already strong like this, but with Lukaku he adds something.”
Romelu Lukaku had looked set to stay at Inter because he was not actively pursuing a transfer. That changed when Suning accepted Chelsea’s third bid for the Belgian striker of €115 million.
