Thanks to the ever-present eyes and cameras of the football-obsessed in Italy, Romelu Lukaku’s journey from Milan to London has been quite thoroughly documented today.
The 28-year-old striker was supposed to have his medical in Belgium on Sunday, which seemed overly complicated. And sure enough, it would appear that his medical was done this morning (Monday) in Milan, after which he hopped into a car ... holding a Chelsea shirt? That’s a bit odd, unless it’s a ruse with a Lukaku lookalike (a Lukalike?).

Some reports has been expecting a potential announcement tonight, but given the late hour, it’s probably much more likely that we get that tomorrow only. Lukaku can be registered as late as 11pm Tuesday night for the Super Cup, though surely there’s no huge rush in that regard.
UPDATE: There’s been a stopover in Monaco for tea and scones, or some such.
