Romelu Lukaku Looking For Inter Milan Return

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is trying to leave Stamford Bridge after just one season, according to multiple Italian reports. His preferred choice would be Inter Milan, where he formed a deadly partnership with Argentine striker Lauturo Martinez. The duo scored 41 goals together under Antonio Conte, as Inter won their first league title in a decade.

However, things quickly changed for the Nerazzurri as Conte left following disagreements with the board. Wingback Ashraf Hakimi departed for PSG. But the most shocking exit was perhaps that of Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian marksman seemed to have finally found his groove in Italy following a disappointing tenure at Old Trafford. But a 97 million pound from former team Chelsea was enough to lure him away from the San Siro. 

But things did not seem to work out in West London. Despite an amazing brace on his second debut against Arsenal, the wheels fell off quickly. The striker had injury problems, and could not properly adjust to Thomas Tuchel’s system. Kai Havertz started ahead of him, which led to a controversial interview by the Belgian. Things were not the same again, as Lukaku struggled to make an impact in games. 

Inter Milan Reunion On The Cards?

Gazzeta Dello Sport mention that there was a meeting between Lukaku’s representatives and Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta. Inter will reportedly love to have the player back, but they have financial problems at the moment. Corriere dello Sport says that the relationship between Lukaku and Tuchel has soured, and Chelsea will look for a way to move on Lukaku in a way that is financially feasible for them.

It was nothing short of a disappointing return for Lukaku if it ends here. However, he has proven to be a top striker, and perhaps Chelsea can give him more time to adjust. They have been rash in the past, and perhaps they may regret it again. An in-form Lukaku can be well worth the 97 million paid for him.
