In the midst of transfer negotiations with Chelsea, Romelu Lukaku has received a warning from a section of Juventus' ultras to avoid joining the Italian club. Overnight, the Curva Sud section of the Turin team unfurled a banner outside of their Allianz Stadium residence that expressed their opinions on the former Inter Milan striker.

Their banner stated: "Lukaku stay in Milan, we already have a second goalkeeper" in reference to Lukaku's poor goalline block of Roberto Dimarco's strike in the Champions League final. In addition, the group said in a social media post that Juve "has not forgotten what happened" and the player is "not welcome" there.

The 30-year-old Belgian striker does not have a confirmed future at Chelsea, but so far this summer, negotiations with Inter and Al-Hilal have not resulted in an agreement on a transfer. One section of Inter supporters referred to Lukaku as a "mercenary" who had "betrayed" the team by even considering a move to rival Juve, where he won the Italian League in 2021.

According to Italian media, Chelsea and Juventus are in negotiations for a player-plus-cash swap in which Dusan Vlahovic would move to West London in exchange for Romelu Lukaku and a transfer sum that might top £35 million.

The fans, who also demonstrated against his probable arrival last month, may be hostile toward Lukaku if he does transfer to Juventus this summer. The striker may draw more criticism for his negotiations with the Bianconeri, which were conducted behind Inter's back if he completes a permanent move from Chelsea.
