Inter chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has said that the club is not hurrying over Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku’s potential return but remains eager to sign him again this summer. Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku is said to be unhappy at Chelsea and will be open to returning to Inter, having expressed a desire to rejoin the club in a fiery interview in December. Last week, it was revealed that Inter could not afford to sign Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku to a permanent contract. While Interise is unsure whether they could afford the transfer fees required to bring back Chelsea forward Romelu Lukakupermanentlys, it has been reported by Calciomercato that they are now looking at potential summer loan deals.
Reports from Italy suggest Inter can offer players to Chelsea in exchange for Romelu Lukaku. Chelsea told Lukaku last week Chelsea was willing to allow him to leave, with the chances of the deal going through being dependent on how much Internazionale are prepared to pay in a loan fee for the 29-year-old and if they are willing to take a significant chunk of his PS 325,000 a week wages. Chelsea had been looking at a loan fee of PS 20m, but Internazionale wanted to pay less, with the feeling that between EUR 10m to 12m might be sufficient. Chelsea is expected to request at least PS 20m in loan fees from the Italians before Chelsea will accept to go, but now it is clear that both sides would like to see this move through.
Chelsea has also yet to pay a club-record PS 97.5m transfer fee to Inter for last summer’s transfer, and Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku is keen on returning to the club. The 29-year-old forward, who formerly played for the previous club, Inter Milan, before returning to Chelsea last year, has fallen out of favour in Chelsea’s Premier League side of late, even though the club broke their transfer record to buy him for PS 97.5million previous summer. Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku has returned only for his second spell with Chelsea this past summer after CHELSEA broke their bank to land him from Inter Milan.
Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku end of the season, was an outcast player, scoring only nine goals in the top flight. Roberto Martinez, his international manager, warned him that he needed to play regularly before the World Cup. In a blistering interview in Italy in December, Chelsea forward Romelu Lukakus made clear he was not happy about the lack of action he was getting at the time and that Chelsea was not playing to his strengths. According to sports daily Gazzetta IT, Romelu Lukaku is prepared to take a 50% pay cut to rejoin a club where he would reunite with Lautaro Martinez, his deadly strike partner, during their title-winning campaign.
