Tuttosport reported last week that the Chelsea star has repeatedly called Inter executives and players to tell them that he is open to returning to the Stadio Meazza. The former Manchester United star is having a tough time at Stamford Bridge, where he hasn’t started a game since February. He is unhappy at Chelsea and is pushing for a return to Inter.
The Nerazzurri need to balance the books and may sell some of their stars in the summer transfer window, but according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, their directors no longer rule out a possible return of their ex-star.
The report specifies that Inter would only afford Lukaku’s return on a loan deal. As of today, Chelsea can’t sign or sell new players because of sanctions on their owner Roman Abramovich. The Blues are in the process of changing their ownership, so Inter are waiting to know what will happen in the control room at Stamford Bridge before talking to the Premier League giants.
Lukaku scored 64 goals in 95 appearances across all competitions during his two-year spell at Inter under Antonio Conte.
