Regarding the potential move to Saudi Arabia, Lukaku expressed confidence in the increasing level of football there and the growing interest from players and fans alike. He acknowledged the need for infrastructure improvement but stressed that major European clubs are aware of the emerging football scene in Saudi Arabia.

Reflecting on his previous consideration of a move to Al-Hilal, Lukaku described the process as intense and filled with indecision.

Lukaku’s potential move is also influenced by financial factors, with Chelsea keen to reduce their wage bill and raise funds for new signings. However, with two years remaining on his Chelsea deal, the club is reluctant to approve another loan move and aims to recoup some of the transfer fee paid to Inter Milan in 2021.
