Romelu Lukaku has released a statement distancing himself from comments made by his agent Federico Pastorello that hinted at talks with Milan and Inter.

His agent spoke to La Repubblica today and discussed his client’s difficult season with Chelsea and what could happen in the future. When asked about a possible return to Serie A, Pastorello noted that there was “lots of noise for nothing. The club and fans are in his heart.

“He has never hidden that and has never hidden the love for Anderlecht were he’d like to end his career. However, we can’t speculate on negotiations. Chelsea’s owner has changed, we don’t know the people, let alone can we imagine talks with Inter or Milan. We have to wait.” He added.

Agent keeps door open for Lukaku’s move to Inter or Milan

Lukaku was clearly unimpressed by this interview and responded on his Instagram story this afternoon, making it clear that he’s fully focused on ending this season with Chelsea.

On his Instagram story, the Chelsea forward wrote: “Never ever will I let someone speak for me… I kept my mouth shut and focused on helping the team and end the season in the best way as possible. So if someone out there trying to say something about me and the club… Not in my name.”

The Belgian forward has clearly learnt following his poorly-gauged interview with Sky Sports Italia last year, where he spoke highly of Inter and their fans and suggested that he’d be returning whilst still at his peak, angering Chelsea supporters.

The 29-year-old Lukaku has scored eight goals and provided one assist in 25 Premier League appearances this season.

    Inter would take him back at the right discounted price!

    Would be hilarious if he joined Milan.

    He will stay at Chelsea anyhow.

    His real value will have dropped to atleast half of what they paid him and they won’t sell him for that obviously.

    He is a year older and has been a huge flop.

  3. DB Milan

    One season and run home with his tail between his legs? Who do you think he is, Leo Bonucci?

    Can see him having a much better next season once Tuchel accepts he might have to tweak things a bit for him to fit in.
