Romelu Lukaku completed a big money move to Chelsea from Inter Milan on August 12th and a few days after his return to Stamford Bridge, the west London club sanctioned Tammy Abraham’s sale to AS Roma.
The Blues earned €40m from the striker’s move to the Serie A side and as part of the deal, Thomas Tuchel’s side reportedly retain an option to buy-back the player for a fee of £68m from June 2023.
Abraham has started his life in Italy on a bright note by managing a goal and two assists in the first two leagues matches.
Former West Ham United and Watford technical director Gianluca Nani fears the Champions League winners will exercise the buy-back option if the England international continues to shine for José Mourinho’s side in the coming seasons.
“I like him very much and I consider him a great player. Sorry that there is the right to buy back, if he does very well, Chelsea could get him back. It doesn’t make you feel calm. He is talented and excellent for Mourinho’s game, a well-chosen footballer,” Nani told TMW Radio, as quoted by Vocegiallorossa.
Abraham, for his part, can only focus on improving his game on the pitch while wearing the Roma shirt and should he continue shine for them, then there’s a good chance Chelsea could consider bringing him back to the club.
