Juventus: Inside Lukaku’s transfer controversy

Published

on

Inter are furious following reports that Juventus started negotiating with Romelu Lukaku back in March, but the Old Lady deny breaking any rules, La Gazzetta dello Sport details.

Page four of today’s Gazzetta underlines how talks were allegedly opened between the Bianconeri and the Belgian’s lawyer Sebastian Ledure back in March and two days after the Champions League final in June, the player reportedly agreed to the terms of a contract.

Inter are deeply angry with the situation and are ready to fight their case, concerned that Juventus may have ‘tapped up’ Lukaku – essentially contacting him without first receiving the proper authorization from his club, something that is against FIFA regulations.

The Nerazzurri are also concerned that these talks with Juventus may have impacted Lukaku’s performance in the Champions League final, where he had a match to forget against Manchester City.

Juventus deny these reports and claim that they didn’t open talks with Lukaku until July, after he’d returned to Chelsea. Their suggestion is that they only called the Belgian striker after obtaining permission from the Blues, following their conversations involving Dusan Vlahovic.

The Old Lady are still negotiating a possible swap deal with Chelsea and this week could be the decisive one to see Lukaku make the jump to Turin.

Transfer: Trabzonspor keen to extend Onuachu’s loan for another season

Trabzonspor want to take Southampton forward Paul Onuachu on loan for another season.

Onuachu joined the Turkish Super Lig side on a season-long loan last summer.

The Nigeria international has registered nine goals and three assists in 17 league appearances for Trabzonspor.

The Black Sea Storm are keen to sign the striker permanently but cannot meet up with Southampton’s €15 million valuation.

According to a report in Transfermarkt, Trabzonspor president, Ertugrul Dogan is pushing hard to have Onuachu at the club at least for another season.

A return to Southampton is highly unlikely for the lanky hitman, who struggled to establish himself during his six-month stay at the club.
