    Romeo was born on December 18, 2018, when Romelu Lukaku was still playing for Manchester United. He left United a year after for Italian Serie A side, Inter Milan on August 8, 2019, for a transfer fee worth €74 million.

    While in Italy, the Belgium record goalscorer has posted pictures of the young man on social media but has always tried to avoid the face of the boy from being visible.

    Though he has never said why he chose to flaunt his son that way, it is assumed that the football star is trying to control the amount of private information that is allowed to get to the public especially now that the boy is still very young.

    The return of Lukaku to the Premier League after signing for Chelsea football club for €115 million on August 12, 2021, means that Romeo is back in his country of birth.

    However, Lukaku’s return to the league has not been as rosy as anticipated. He just recovered from an injury before he contract covid-19.

    Aside from that, his goalscoring form has not been as superb as anticipated as he has managed to score just 5 goals and provided an assist in 16 games in all competitions so far this season.

    He is expected to miss Chelsea’s Premier League game against Wolves on Sunday, December 19, 2021. The game will kick off at 15:00.
