Pastorello stated that his client will seek talks with the new Chelsea owners upon Todd Boehly's arrival.

He said: "He has the club and the fans in his heart, he has never hidden it, like his love for Anderlecht where he would like to end his career.

"But we cannot think about negotiations. Chelsea are in takeover discussions, we do not know the new owners, let alone if we can open talks with Inter or AC Milan. We have to wait."

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has since offered his thoughts on the comments, joking that he will not be involved in the meeting.

"I think if he plans to talk with the owner it is not his plan to talk with me! It’s fair enough. Let’s see if he gets a meeting! It is his right. We will talk to anybody. We will evaluate any situation of any player including Romelu. We will see what is going to happen and what the plans are," he said.
