Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku position clear after showdown meeting with Thomas Tuchel

Thomas Tuchel and Romelu Lukaku held clear the air talks on Monday following Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Liverpool, after the Belgian was dropped following his recent comments.

Despite only arriving in the summer from Inter Milan, Lukaku recent told Sky Italia that he was unimpressed with Tuchel's system, and even expressed a desire to head back to Italy.

Tuchel took the decision to drop the £97.5m summer signing ahead of Chelsea's vital clash against Liverpool, but they battled back from a two-goal deficit in his absence.

And now Lukaku's Chelsea position has been made clear after a crunch meeting between the pair.

Following the recent spat, Lukaku has already been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge despite only arriving back at the club six months ago.

There were rumours that Lukaku could head back to Inter or even seek a loan move elsewhere.

But according to Fabrizio Romano, the Belgian will not be leaving the club in January regardless of what type of move may be offered.

Tuchel will also discuss his decision on Lukaku's involvement on Tuesday, ahead of their Carabao Cup semi-final clash against Tottenham on Wednesday, with the Daily Mail suggesting that he could be reintegrated back into the side.

Training has resumed as normal though, and despite Lukaku's omission from the matchday squad, he was pictured taking training with the rest of his teammates on Monday just hours after the 2-2 draw with Liverpool.

In today's day and age, a saga of this kind usually ends one of two ways, with either the player departing or the manager being forced out the door, and such events have become infamous with Chelsea over the years.

However, with Chelsea's stance on Lukaku clear, it appears that the club are hoping to salvage the situation, but Tuchel will certainly be a little uneasy based on previous examples.
