Chelsea reportedly meeting to finalize Romelu Lukaku deal on Saturday

I was expecting to hear that we'd finalized a deal for the young Chelsea fan at some point this week, but ESPN soccernet is reporting that we'll be meeting representatives of Anderlecht on Saturday to finalize the deal.

Anderlecht striker Romelu Lukaku is hoping to finalise a £20 million move to Chelsea on Saturday at a meeting between the two clubs in Monaco.

Based in Monaco, Lukaku's agent Christophe Henrotay will welcome Anderlecht's general manager, Herman van Holsbeeck as well as a host of Chelsea representatives as the two sides seek to complete the transfer.

While this is only rumor at this point, ESPN generally does a better job of ensuring sources actually exist than most of the South American or European media. As noted earlier in the week, Lukaku has been dropping hints for a bit that a deal is very near being done. It's good to see Chelsea targeting the top young players in the world, I'm really looking forward to the thought of Lukaku terrorizing the Premier League in a Chelsea kit for the next 12-15 years.
