Report: Romelu Lukaku's agent 'cheered' for Chelsea during Champions League final

Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku’s agent Federico Pastorello was present and cheering for Chelsea during the Champions League final in Porto, Portugal amid reported Chelsea interest.

According to Belgian outlet HLN, Chelsea have not changed their summer transfer plans despite the Champions League victory.

Interestingly, his agent Pastorello was in the stands of the Estadio do Dragao in the Champions League final between Chelsea and Manchester City and even “cheered” for the eventual winners.

This does not seem to be a mere assumption since Pastorello himself posted a couple of videos on his social media account with plenty of blue heart emojis in the caption.

The HLN report, however, mentioned that Inter Milan have no intention to sell their top scorer.

Inter chairman Steven Zhang even reportedly considers Lukaku as “unsaleable”.

They are doing everything they can to convince the striker to stay with new manager Simone Inzaghi expected to make a long phone call with Lukaku, the report claims.

The report also added that at the moment, Lukaku himself wants to focus on the Euro 2020 with Belgium and will make a decision about his future after the tournament.
