Inter have increased their offer to Chelsea for the return of Romelu Lukaku on loan to €7 million plus bonuses, according to various reports in Italy.

The Belgium forward has been heavily linked with a move to San Siro just 12 months after leaving Inter for Stamford Bridge in a deal worth €115m.

On Sunday, reports suggested Inter had a breakthrough in the negotiations as a compromise was being made financially despite the Nerazzurri being made aware they would need to pay more than their initial offer of €5m plus bonuses.

And Gianluca Di Marzio among others suggests on Monday that Inter have gone back with an offer of €7m plus bonuses.

Sunday’s reports included that Chelsea were looking for around €10m plus bonuses so it remains to be seen if this bid will be accepted.

Lukaku scored 64 goals in 95 appearances during his first spell with the club and helped them win the Scudetto before leaving for Chelsea.

  1. as chelsea need a CB – why dont inter just swap skrinnar with lukaku plus money – as we all know inter have to sell at least 1 top player this yr to balance the books.

    id rather sell skrinnar over bastoni – due to age

  2. Mohammed
    Marotta is a real man of business. Trust him, if they de ide to sell Skriniar he will sell him at the highest price, no matter if it is chelsea or psg or others

  3. It really doesn’t matter what Inter do. They are adding some useful additions and the bigger question is to ask what their competitors are doing. Milan will not be taken over until September. The market will be closed and the season will be underway. Over at PhD Max HQ, they are building back nicely. Slower, no freebies announced and if so, very old players are incoming. Marotta remains the best bit of business Inter have done in years. Worth every penny and I am sure Dybala will see his potential come to fruition.

  4. @Mohammed, in Inter‘s view, Lukaku is worth about what his book value would be, had he stayed. So for a Lukaku / Skriniar swap deal, Chelsea would need to stack another 40-50mil, given that Skriniar is valued at 80 mil. Joke on Chelsea for overpaying this dud.
