Inter to Keep Lukaku Beyond Agreed Deal with Chelsea

Romelu Lukaku is in Chelsea’s past despite his stay at Inter being signed for only one season.  Latest reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport (via FCInterNews) indicate that the 29-year-old striker is not in the English Premier League’s plans anymore going forward, with Inter and Chelsea already agreeing orally to renew the loan for the 2023/24 season.

The Blues paid €115M for the big Belgian in the summer of 2021, but he never clicked off in his return to Stamford Bridge, with a whole lot of controversies marring his development. Having indicated his desire to return to Italy, the Nerazzurri pounced upon the opportunity and signed him back on a loan deal, which will seemingly be turned into a permanent one down the lane.

The idea is to find a solution for his stay in Milan even when the loan expires, with Inter saying yes to paying the player’s salary along with the temporary transfer fee.

Lukaku is currently sidelined due to an injury, restricting his numbers to just one goal and assist each in three far in the Nerazzurri colors this season. He is scheduled to return to the bench this weekend against Fiorentina, but nothing is confirmed yet.
