Chelsea Legend, Drogba Sends Message to Lukaku Following Mauricio Pochettino Transfer Decision

Didier Drogba has reached out to Romelu Lukaku with a heartfelt message, following the Belgian striker’s opportunity for redemption under Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea.

Pochettino, who was recently unveiled as the new boss at Stamford Bridge, presented his ambitious plans for the club’s rebuilding process during a captivating media appearance.

With the departure of Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter, the west London side has undergone significant changes this summer, aiming to trim their bloated squad.

Speculation has surrounded the 30-year-old’s future, with reports suggesting his desire to secure a permanent return to Serie A with Inter.

Lukaku has shown no interest in a move to Saudi Arabia, despite attracting attention from several Pro League clubs in the country.

However, Pochettino has left the door open for Lukaku’s return, extending an olive branch during a recent statement.

The Argentine manager expressed his expectation of seeing the Belgian striker back at Chelsea’s Cobham training base next week, implying that Lukaku still has an opportunity to prove his worth.

Pochettino stated, “I think the personal situations, all the parties know what we think. In that case, he needs to come back on the 12th or 13th [of July] to be part of the squad and start pre-season. When the player arrives, the first thing they are doing is to come to my office to see me and say hello. That is what I expect if he is still a Chelsea player.”
