Summary: \- Lukaku is expected to sign a five-year contract worth around €12-13 million-a-year net (about £195,000-a-week after tax). It makes him the highest earner at Stamford Bridge. \- Both sides will be happy with how negotiations have gone. Chelsea have managed to keep the fee under £100 million, while Inter Milan will receive the total in cash. \- Lukaku made it clear that he was keen on a move back to Stamford Bridge \- Chelsea were determined to get the switch completed by Sunday night to ensure Lukaku is ready to start the Premier League season.

I wonder if he will wear 18 again or wait until Tammy leaves and take 9


humzauddin27

I lowkey wanted him to take 11! But I guess he will try and take 9


thehandsomelyraven

might take 15


Low-Paleontologist43

Yes!


grouptherapy17

Kante has a contract extension coming up so he will be deservedly back as our highest earner.


narutonami

He is already our highest earner with 295k?


nronaldo2000

How does Lukaku's wages compare to premiere league's highest earners?


nini1423

I'm not sure if this [list](https://www.spotrac.com/epl/rankings/weekly/) is gross or net pay per week, but if it's gross, Lukaku would be third at £355K. If it's showing net pay, he would be 16th at £195K.


Howyoulikemenoow

Willian 😂 Although Chilwell done alright considering Zouma is £55k a week - I thought defenders generally earned less


nronaldo2000

Sancho is on 350k!! Damn, my man got payed


Remy13Hadley

how comes Chilwell get paid so much compared to our other signings in the same summer especially when he's a fullback?!?


GrogRhodes

I assume that he was getting paid decent at Leicester City and there certainly other teams in for him.


Jostwa

That list is wildly inaccurate regardless of whether it's net or gross.


zsrocks

Sorry, what’s net pay? Also, is the weekly salary paid 52 weeks per year, or only during the season?


nini1423

Net is post-tax, gross is pre-tax. Their salaries are paid every week during the calendar year, iirc.


Ru5k0

What is that before tax? Comparatively with Kanté


RamsayMacDonald

360k


Ru5k0

Phwoar


nini1423

Closer to £355K.


nini1423

~£355K-a-week before tax (45%). 😳


ScorpiaHP

Are the wages different to what Matt reported, or is this inclusive of bonuses?


just_dew_eat

Rudiger about to hold out on a new contract after seeing what we are paying Lukaku


SirBarkington

If rudiger thinks he can get more because one of the best strikers in the world atm is here then he can leave. I don't get why people don't realize players know their own levels as well as others and aren't going to ask for crazy wages just because.


GuruofGreatness

Who's to say Rudi isn't one of the best Defenders in the world? He just won Chelsea the Champions League, Lukaku didn't.


GrogRhodes

He’s not. The body of work isn’t there over the course of his career. He had his best season the second to last year of his contract which points to an incredibly focused player. I really hope this is his norm because he’s awesome but we’ll see what happens after his next contract.


BadCogs

Door is open for him.


Howyoulikemenoow

and then quickly snap up a deal when he see’s further competition coming in with Kounde


Ludbunta

That is a monster wage


Balosmelli

We’ve finally signed my baller. Gonna be a shameless Lukaku stan now idc 👍🏾


LaerBaer

Yeah, me too! Love the man! Seems like he's a pretty cool dude.


dudetotalypsn

Need him announced ffs so I can buy my Lukaku kit 😤

VAAAMOS


interstellar304

This is a big move for us to have a prime striker up top for at least another 3 years. I think this benefits Timo the most, i expect a much better haul from him this campaign


Hellbomber

Glad this is finally done. Welcome back!


adazi6

LETS GO OMG


xKarma17

Chance he will play in the super cup?


UrbanTorto1se

I have a feeling the registration was today so doubt it!


OsaasD

Our team is really scary right now, even if this is our only signing it is basically all we need. If we add Kounde and a class CF to the team, 10/10 window


btlsrvc23

Agreed. It was the only glaring weakness and when you think about Timo as more of a second striker with less pressure and thicker offside line I bet he comes good too. This is good for the whole team.


KyloRen147

Werner could be his new Lautaro Martinez. If we have injuries and Ziyech is away at Afcon it could be good option. Although, I do prefer to say Havertz could be that guy too and in fact even better.


Gordondel

Werner played a two striker system at Leipzig and couldn't stop scoring, he's definitely better suited foe the role than Havertz.


MrRightnow83

So is this it. Did we get our guy


[deleted]

Lukaku made it clear he was keen on a move back to Stamford bridge Also 2 weeks ago…. Lakaku made it clear he is keen on staying at inter and does not want a move this summer


the_original_slugger

inter probably came to him and asked him to accept it, as they are in a financial crisis atm and he agreed,\\.


chrisnets1987

Orny dagger


pjspin0331

Genuinely curious and probably a stupid question, but what exactly does this mean for Tammy? Is he pretty much moving on or is there any way he stays as a backup? Very excited and feel like Lukaku is the missing puzzle piece for us to really challenge for the title.

Ornstein has always been tier 1 man

The prodigal son returns…


advbad

So what's gonna happen to Timo, I really feel like Timo will have a banger of a season this time but I thought the same last season too


TokenQueerBlackMinor

Shit idiot player. Get Haaland.


Bad_Decision_Rob_Low

This is one player you really can’t call dumb or stupid. Stop being a child
