ROMELU LUKAKU is back for Chelsea, having completed a £98million move from Inter Milan to the Blues earlier this week.
The Belgian left Chelsea for Everton back in 2013 and has since played for Manchester United and Inter Milan.
Last season, he won Inter's first Serie A title since 2010, finishing the league's second top scorer behind Cristiano Ronaldo.
But now, Lukaku is back in the Premier League to add to his already impressive goal tally.
When will Romelu Lukaku play his first game for Chelsea?
In actual fact, Romelu Lukaku wont ever play his first game for Chelsea, because he already has!
Lukaku joined Chelsea back in 2011 for around £18million and made 10 appearances for the Blues in the midst of loan spells with West Brom and Everton.
He was eventually sold to the Toffees for £28m after missing a vital penalty in Chelsea's Super Cup shootout loss to Bayern Munich in 2013.
But now the Belgian is back in London to complete unfinished business.
He won't, however, be playing this weekend for the Blues in their first Premier League game against Crystal Palace.
In Chelsea's pre-match briefing posted on the club website, it said: "The sensational return of Romelu Lukaku has come too late for involvement in the opening exchange this weekend, but the statement of ambition is clear."
That makes it more likely that Lukaku will join up with training early next week and he'll be ready to play on Sunday, August 22, for Chelsea's trip to Arsenal.
"I’m happy and blessed to be back at this wonderful club," said Lukaku upon his return.
"It’s been a long journey for me: I came here as a kid who had a lot to learn, now I’m coming back with a lot of experience and more mature.
"The relationship I have with this club means so much to me, as you know. I have supported Chelsea as a kid and now to be back and try to help them win more titles is an amazing feeling."
