The Blues are confident of securing a deal to re-sign the 23-year-old ahead of the new Premier League season but fans have taken to Twitter to share their displeasure
It seems as though the signing of Romelu Lukaku would not be a popular with Chelsea fans. Or not for the transfer fee being mooted, at least.
The Blues have made a big-money move for the Belgium international, two years after leaving the club to join Everton.
Having scored 43 Premier League goals in 104 appearances for the Toffees the 23-year-old is reportedly looking for Champions League football.
However, rumours linking him with a return to Stamford Bridge have not gone down well with some Chelsea fans...
If Chelsea actually sign Lukaku for £70m I CBA anymore. Really.— Owen McMahon (@omcmahonmedia) 3 August 2016
If we sign Lukaku for £72 million, then I don't want to live on this earth anymore #chelsea— JOAB (@Joabias1) 3 August 2016
Luis, Salah, Pato, Falcao, Miazga, Cuadrado, Baba & now Lukaku.
Arsenal's no transfer policy is better than Chelsea's sign and throw tbh.— Prakash (@prakash_cfc) 2 August 2016

If we really pay for Lukaku 77million and decide to sell Costa, not sure I could feel anything else than sadness. #FPL— Prophet (@FplProphet) 4 August 2016
