Chelsea To Block Lukaku Mistake In Tammy Abraham Transfer

Chelsea are set to offload Tammy Abraham within the next few days and want to avoid a repeat of their Romelu Lukaku transfer mistake.

The Blues have therefore inserted a buy-back clause in their deal to sell Tammy Abraham to AS Roma.

Chelsea academy graduate Abraham is set to depart Stamford Bridge on a permanent basis and join Jose Mourinho at Roma in a deal worth £34million.

Reports suggest the young striker is believed to have flown to Italy on Sunday to complete his medical and officially sign a five-year contract for Roma.

However, Chelsea are eager to avoid their mistakes of the past and have included a buy-back clause in the deal.

Chelsea ironically spent £97.5m on Lukaku, a player they let go of for just £28m back in 2014.

And as a result, it seems Stamford Bridge chiefs want to avoid a repeat, and have inserted a buy-back clause in the deal of just £68m in the deal.

However, reports suggest the clause will only become active once he has completed two seasons at the Serie A club.
