Lukaku linked with Milan and Juve as unhappy Chelsea star wants Serie A return

by | May 26, 2022 12:58

Il Corriere dello Sport reports Chelsea star Romelu Lukaku wants to return to Italy, where Milan and Juventus have emerged as possible options for the Belgium star.

The former Inter striker returned to Stamford Bridge in a €113m deal last summer, but his season in London wasn’t as good as he expected as the 29-year-old has only scored 15 goals in 44 appearances across all competitions.

According to the report, Thomas Tuchel is open to letting him leave, but the Rossoneri would only be able to secure his services on loan while the striker would need to cut his €15m-a-year salary.

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

His agent Federico Pastorello had mentioned a possible move to Milan in his latest interview with La Repubblica newspaper, but insisted that he hadn’t held talks with either the Rossoneri or Inter.

Juventus are mentioned as a possible destination for the Belgium striker, but the Old Lady may not be willing to invest much in a new forward, given that they spent €80m to sign Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina in January.

Lukaku has also been linked with a return to Inter, but the Nerazzurri would only get him on loan.

Serie A clubs can’t use the growth decree if Lukaku returns to Italy as the 50% tax discount can’t be applied to professionals returning to the country after just one season abroad and if they sign contracts shorter than three years.

    From a Milan point of view – no thanks. Seriously unreliable, total mercenary.

  2. gee

    This proves how bas journalists are today, there is no way in a million years that any Milanista or player would want an Interista in our team.

    We have been singing Interista fcuk off all season and now the media is saying that Milan are considering Lukaku, what trash,

  3. Rosario

    I wouldn’t want this serial turncoat and money grabbing mercenary anywhere near Milan.

  4. Gre-No-Li

    Really dunno what to think… I mean, the guy certainly can detiver the goods, he’s fast like a turbotrain and strong as buldozer, but on a personal level he simply cannot be fully trusted. Well, hope its only media nonsense.

    I really hope this is fake news and it never happens…


    How funny would it be if Ibra sticks around and they sign Lu-cash-cow

    They hate each other, so being in same team would be wild.

    Juven use it to complicate Inter’s Dybala signing, to say the least. U want Dybala or Lukaku.Of course Lukaku is better than Dybala.

    Do Milan fans have the shortest memory spans? All this turn cloak, mercenary talk meanwhile their leader in the change room is probably the most notorious mercenary of them all – Ibra. If the player brings quality, then take them on.

  8. b@w

    cmon really?
    juve and milan dont need this guy.

    football italia is posting some good jokes.

  9. DB Milan

    Mercenary can be applied to most footballers, lets be honest. Its very rare to have a one club career and/or not want the most money available.

    Regardless of all that, this is a nonsense story. No way he goes to either Juve or Milan.

  10. Bianconero

    Could see lukaku being Redbirds first signing as ibra is injured for 7 months do will likely retire

  11. Bianconero

    Milan fans should remember where Ibra has played.


    @Bianconero … Indeed they should.

  13. Gre-No-Li

    But the point is to be thoroughly pragmatic… Ibra came in 2020 as a free transfer; moreover, he felt the urge to prove to the world that he could still play at a high level in a competitive league. Lukaku, on the other hand, would cost a truckload of money… so, signing a player who might not be 100% engaged in the project could be a VERY problematic bet.

  14. R. Bonora

    The biggest mercenary in football history is Ibra!

  15. All-Inter

    R.Bonora agreed and he thinks he has saved every club he has played in and still without winning any personal or international triphies. Pathetic

    The first chance he got to leave Juventus, he took it. Ibra the player and personality at Milan has been a whole other level to that at Inter and Juventus. Plus he took a pay cut to move to Milan from Barcelona, and again accepted to help the club financially when asked to accept the move to PSG.

  17. Rosario


    He can go to Juventus and repeat the fake watered down milk story to convince people that he’s humble.

    He couldn’t even face Inter fans when he suddenly decided to walk out on them. On both talent and more importantly human level, Lukaku couldn’t even tie Ibra’s laces.
