As a 16-year-old boy, Romelu Lukaku went on a school trip to Stamford Bridge and visit was filmed.
“What a stadium,” he said. “If one day in my life I will cry, it will be the day I play here. I love Chelsea.”
Two years later, Chelsea spent £18million to sign him from Anderlecht.
In his first season he played in 12 games and failed to score a goal. In his second season he was loaned out to West Brom where he scored 17 goals in 38 games.
Towards the end of the season, after scoring against Southampton, Lukaku kissed the West Brom badge.
