Chelsea have agreed a £97.
5million deal for Romelu Lukaku - after they refused Inter Milan’s demands to break the British transfer record.
The Blues finally settled on the cash-only price for the striker after holding firm and refusing to cough up a further five million Euros - around £4.2m.
But the two clubs eventually reached an agreement after a week of haggling.
Chelsea are hopeful of announcing the return of the Belgian on Monday.
That year, Chelsea allowed Lukaku to join Everton for just £28m.
Still aged just 28, Chelsea believe they are signing a striker in the peak of his powers.
