The Chelsea ownership group supposedly want to install a legend of the west London club as their future manager. Meanwhile the Blues are reportedly considering signing Everton star Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

In addition to looking at those two topics, The Pride of London cast an eye at stories concerning CFC outcast Romelu Lukaku. The striker may be heading for the riches of a footballing graveyard.

Romelu Lukaku saga continues

We have a few things to cover today, so let's waste no time and get down to it. Before Chelsea embark on a preseason tour of the United States this summer, they want to wrap up some transfer business. And the aim is for certain personnel to be incoming as well as outgoing.

There is a need to balance the books at Stamford Bridge. Not to mention a requirement to raise funds for aforementioned acquisitions. A perfect case, or person, to start with in that case is Romelu Lukaku.

What is the Belgium international even still doing on the Blues' books at all?! Well, he could have been truly obstinate due to a perception of how he was treated or pushed out by a couple of Chelsea managers. And therefore maybe he wanted to technically remain a Blue so that he could continue raking in the ridiculous £325,000-a-week wage he's on. But that's just a theory.

According to reports this time last year, CFC bosses couldn't rid themselves of Lukaku on a permanent basis. Consequently Todd Boehly and Co. had to accept a loan for the centreforward. Unsurprisingly, Lukaku will be blocked from making temporary switches, suggest BBC.

Lukaku's new price tag is ostensibly around £37m; I'm unconvinced there will be many European takers at that fee. However, he is open to a move to Saudi Arabia; there is more of a chance of obtaining that amount from the Middle East.

The Pride of London's view on Dominic Calvert-Lewin to Chelsea

Most footballing connoisseurs understand that aside from an injury-plagued career, Calvert-Lewin is a world-class striker. If he stayed fit, he would arguably be someone who could flourish at the Bridge. Although knowing his fitness, I would say that signing the 27-year-old is a massive risk.

Could Thiago Silva manage the Fulham Road outfit one day? That's the claim from CFC specialist Nizaar Kinsella, who recently moved to BBC. Nonetheless, having just appointed Enzo Maresca, it's a peculiar time to make the suggestion.
