PICTURES: Romelu Lukaku’s first training session back at Chelsea

He’s here, he’s real, he’s beautiful

Romelu Lukaku has come home to Chelsea, and after stopping by Cobham on Monday for his in-house media duties and a brief tour to re-familiarize himself with the surroundings, he joined up with the first-team yesterday (Tuesday) for his first training session. (He had to isolate for five days after his arrival last week, which I guess is a Premier League protocol?)

While he’s been gone long enough that only César Azpilicueta remains of the teams he was once part of, he also knows a lot of the Academy boys, and he’s already developing a bromance with young Trevoh Chalobah, whose older brother, Nathaniel was a close friend when they both were starting to knock on the first-team door around 2012, 2013.

In fact, here’s Romelu talking about watching Trevoh’s goal on Saturday, and then getting all emotional about it. One of us.

I mean ... come on! Just too perfect.

Can’t wait to see him in action.
