Petr Cech ‘disagreed’ with new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly over Lukaku before exit

Petr Cech's Chelsea exit reportedly came after he disagreed with new Blues owner Todd Boehly over Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku made his return to Stamford Bridge last summer, but the Belgian has struggled in front of goal for Thomas Tuchel. And 12 months later, Lukaku looks set to be back on his way to Inter Milan – to the apparent annoyance of the former shot-stopper.

Cech stepped down from his role as technical and performance advisor, following Bruce Buck and Marina Granovskaia in leaving Chelsea. According to the Telegraph, Cech was unhappy with his reduced role, and he believed Lukaku should be given a second season.

The Belgian arrived on a five-year deal, to the tune of around £100million, last summer after ripping up the Serie A.

However, Lukaku hasn't been able to translate his Serie A form to the English top-tier. And the Belgian was only able to notch eight goals in the Premier League last season – with a further lone assist in 26 appearances.

That form has led Lukaku to seek an exit, and he looks set to join Inter on loan, with Chelsea netting £7million for their struggles.
