Romelu's return to Chelsea

Romelu Lukaku has returned to Chelsea, begun training, and is ready to play. He confirmed that he is "fit and ready" for Sunday's game against Arsenal.

Romelu Lukaku signed for Chelsea in a €115 million deal earlier in August. Now the highest earner in the club, Lukaku will earn around €12-13 million a year for the next five years with his contract.

Lukaku: "I can't wait to help them and add something new to the playing style."

Lukaku came to London last week, but couldn't make the game that weekend against Crystal Palace, which they won 3-0. But after training with his new team and during a full preseason, the Belgian says he's "fit and ready" for this weekend against Arsenal.

He said that the experience with Chelsea doesn't feel new because he already knows several members of the team. The dream has been realized. Now it's time to "let my performance do the talking."
