Prefers Saudi Arabia move to Juventus

Though eager for a separation from his image owners England’s Chelsea FC, Romelu Lukaku will prefer life in the fiery Saudi Arabian wilderness rather than sign for AC Milan, who are the main rivals of Internazionale Milan where he is currently on loan.
This comes as the Blues And so their demands are appearing to be lowering their estimation of the striker and are gradually approaching a price point at which a deal can be made.
Chelsea have rejected Inter Milan’s latest offer, and demanded €45m for the striker, who cost them £100m only two years ago, Ben Jacobs reports for the Guardian.
Chelsea have been looking for an outlet to offload Lukaku on permanent transfer for more than a year after it became obvious that there cannot be a common ground between player and owner after things fell apart between them at Stamford Bridge.
According to Chelsea News, the Blues are not eager for the striker to show up at their preseason training camp which is set to commence next week.
The forward also have hinted that he does not want anything thing to do with Chelsea football preferring instead to be allowed to remain at Inter or be sold to another Club.
However offloading Lukaku to a greener pasture has been a hard sell as clubs consider Chelsea’s asking price for the marksman too steep and the player to be overvalued based on fitness or current form.
But a couple of teams now seem to be showing enough keenness at Chelsea’s current asking price – Juventus and Al Hilal from the Saudi Pro League.
Jacobs reports that Lukaku is currently “seriously considering” a move to Saudi Arabia, having dismissed such offers earlier this summer, in all probability when he was of the presumption that Inter were going to be able to match his owner’s asking price.
