Romelu Lukaku Breaks Silence On Imminent Inter Milan Transfer As Todd Boehly Grants Chelsea Wish

Romelu Lukaku has spoken ahead of a potential return to Inter Milan this summer.


The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with an exit from Stamford Bridge this summer, and a return to the San Siro always seemed the likely destination.

The striker landed in Milan this morning with his lawyer to finalise a temporary exit from Stamford Bridge.

It’s said that Lukaku, who couldn’t hide his delight at a departure from Chelsea this summer, touched down in Italy to undergo a medical, sign contracts and announce the deal.

Reports add that Inter will cover the entirety of the Belgium international’s salary, with Chelsea set to be guaranteed an €8million up-front loan fee plus add-ons.

London understands that Lukaku asked his lawyer earlier this season to check the possibility of a possible return to the San Siro, less than 12 months after making the move from Milan to London.

London also understand that the striker was set to hold talks with Boehly and other higher-ups ahead of a final decision.

Whether or not these talks have happened seem to have had little impact on the striker, who reportedly wants nothing to do with current boss Thomas Tuchel ‘anymore’, according to the latest Italian reports via Sport Witness.

“I think if he plans to talk with the owner, maybe 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,” Tuchel said on the striker ahead of the FA Cup final.

Lukaku struggled to acclimatise to the Premier League upon his return to west London, finding the net 15 times in 44 appearances last season.

His misfortune in front of goal has cast doubt over his future, though he has still been able to reportedly court the interest of several top-flight European clubs ahead of the transfer window.
