Chelsea finally confirmed the new signing of Romelu Lukaku yesterday evening, and fans went wild.
10 years after first signing for Chelsea, Lukaku returns to the place he loves and was determined to make it at. He now has a second chance to do just that, and he is coming back a much more mature and experienced person and player this time around.
Blues fans welcomed the striker back with open arms, and everyone will be willing him on to be a real hit and turn himself into a Chelsea legend.
There will be one thing familiar from ten years prior, Lukaku will be wearing the same number 18 shirt, at least for now.
That is because that is the number they have registered him with for now, according to HLN’s Belgian reporter, Kristof Terreur today.

It will be quite fitting to see him in this shirt number again, although I’m sure it wont be long before he is given the number 9 shirt.
