Romelu Lukaku’s social media post before the Derby della Madonnina yesterday hasn’t gone unnoticed as the Blues star took a selfie wearing black and blue clothes.
The Belgium international reportedly hopes to return to his former club in the summer as his spell at Stamford Bridge has been highly disappointing so far.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reported yesterday that Lukaku is in talks with Inter directors who have not ruled out a possible return in the summer. According to the report, Lukaku watched the Derby della Madonnina with some of his closest friends last night.
Lukaku took a mirror selfie where he was seen wearing black and blue clothes. The picture hasn’t gone unnoticed, with Inter fans and Italian media suggesting that the striker’s chromatic choice was not casual.
Lukaku can no longer support Inter publicly after an interview with Sky Sport Italia in December, where he said he wanted to return to Inter. After that interview, he was suspended by his club and had to apologise to his teammates and Chelsea fans a few days later.
Lukaku has failed to justify his €113m price tag, scoring just 12 goals in 37 appearances with the Premier League giants. The last time he scored in a league game was in December 2021.
