Mauricio Pochettino is open to working with Lukaku who must decide if he wants to revive Chelsea career

Mauricio Pochettino is willing to work with Romelu Lukaku, who needs to decide if he wants to continue his career with Chelsea.
Romelu Lukaku’s departure from Chelsea will not be discussed until after Inter Milan’s appearance in the Champions League final.

Before the club makes its formal announcement, Lukaku will be asked if he wants to be a part of Chelsea’s new era under new head coach Mauricio Pochettino, who has returned to England from Barcelona. This information was initially provided by Telegraph Sport.

Lukaku will need to inform the team that he is prepared to give it another shot before Pochettino, who is now back in London, will consider working with him and reintegrating him into the Chelsea lineup.

According to Italian media, Lukaku would prefer to remain at Inter, but the team might not be able to afford to keep him there permanently or on loan for a second season at the same terms.

Talks will take place at the conclusion of the current campaign, although Inter’s campaign has now been prolonged till June 10, when the team will play in the Champions League final.

The outcome of that game may also have an impact on Romelu Lukaku’s future, which is one of the major problems Chelsea is currently dealing with since the team is in desperate need of a proven goal scorer to lead off next season.

Lukaku had a difficult season while on loan at Inter, and he missed both of the first legs of the Champions League semifinal matchup against AC Milan. However, he played as a substitute in both games, and in his previous 22 matches for club and country, he has netted 14 goals.

The 30-year-old’s agent, Micahel Yormark, president of Roc Nation Sports International, confirmed that discussions on his future will not take place until after the Champions League final. Yormark added: “It’s too early to tell (what will happen).

“The Champions League final features Romeleu. We’ll all get down when the season is over and evaluate where he is and what his options are. We’re just overjoyed that he’s healthy and that he’s performing well, and we’ll make up our minds about this season after it’s finished.

Chelsea has privately denied reports made by Julian Nagelsmann’s representative that the German was the club’s original top target to replace Graham Potter on a permanent basis.

Nagelsmann was one of the shortlisted contenders, but, as reported by Telegraph Sport, Pochettino’s popularity surged within the club until the 35-year-old withdrew from consideration.
