If reports from Italy are to be believed, Romelul Lukaku is on his way back to the Italian Serie A. Since rejoining Chelsea from Inter Milan for a club-record deal of £98 million last year, the 29-year-old Belgian has been disappointed. In the Premier League, he scored just eight goals, a far cry from his spectacular spell with the Nerazzurri.
According to the Daily Mail UK, Lukaku is set to return to Inter on loan. According to the La Gazzetta dello Sport, Lukaku would earn £6.4 million per year in salaries, which is £3.8 million less than his current Chelsea salary of £10.2 million plus £2.5 million in add-ons.
He is thought to be hoping for regular playing time ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which could be Belgium’s “Golden Generation’s” final realistic chance at international glory. Lukaku and his agent Federico Pastorello split ties a few days ago, according to The Mirror, ahead of the mooted loan move.
Meanwhile, Romelu Lukaku has severed connections with his agent as he works to secure a return to Inter Milan.
According to Sports Brief, the Chelsea striker wants to leave the club this summer and is reportedly doing everything he can to make it happen. Federico Pastorello, the agency in charge of Lukaku’s moves, has now cut connections with him. As he pursues a return to San Siro, he has turned to Sebastien Ledure, a lawyer by profession.
