Romelu Lukaku’s transfer from Chelsea to Inter Milan could be done ‘in a matter of days’ as the Italian team’s CEO says ‘we are happy to bring him home’


Romelu Lukaku’s planned return to Inter could be completed in ‘a few days’, according to the Italian club’s CEO.

Lukaku is set to leave Chelsea on loan at former club Inter, just a year after signing the Blues’ record-breaking £97.2million deal.

The Belgian went from missing piece for Thomas Tuchel to distraction up front within months, and quickly compounded his misery by seemingly agitating for a return to Italy.

“We have to thank the availability of the presidency and the owners,” said Giuseppe Marotta. “I hope it can be closed, not in a few hours, but in a few days.

“We can’t make him official yet, he’s a returning player who has done very well with us and we’re happy to bring him home.”

Lukaku had echoed those thoughts in December last year before he apologized for an infamous interview with Sky Italia.

Telling fans of the team he won Serie A with that he loves them and wants to return one day, Lukaku also said he was “unhappy” with his lack of playing time at Chelsea.

The 29-year-old’s comments had little impact on his activity on the pitch, losing his place to Kai Havertz and struggling to find the net.

Meanwhile, the Blues already appear to be making arrangements for Lukaku’s departure, with a £60m move for Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling in the offing.
