Romelu Lukaku won’t play in the encounter against AC Milan on Saturday night, September 3, according to a statement from Inter Milan. This means that Lukaku would not also feature in Inter Milan’s clash with Cremonese at 19:45 tonight, August 30.
The on-loan player from Chelsea participated in Inter’s first three Serie A contests, but a thigh injury sustained on Sunday, August 29, would sideline him for at least two weeks.
The 28-year-old Belgian striker has undergone tests at the Humanitas Institute in Rozzano, the Nerazzurri stated in an official statement posted on their website.
Hence, it has been confirmed that Lukaku will be sidelined due to the muscle pain he experienced during Sunday’s training session at Appiano Gentile, the day following their 3-1 loss to Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico.
His condition will be reevaluated at the start of the next week based on the results of the tests he completed, which revealed that he had a sprain of his left thigh flexors.
As a result, he is ineligible for both their match against Cremonese on Tuesday and the Derby Della Madonnina at San Siro on Saturday.
Before the break at the end of September, Inter has six games, including two in the Champions League and four in Serie A.
Next week’s match between Inter and Bayern Munich in the Champions League opener appears to be in jeopardy for the Belgian forward.
Simone Inzaghi expects that Romelu Lukaku will be able to play before the first match following the break on October 4 against Roma, but won’t know for sure until next week when Lukaku has a new medical examination.
The favorite to replace Lukaku in Inter’s assault is Edin Dzeko.

Romelu Lukaku’s words.
Lukaku, the former striker for Chelsea, expressed dissatisfaction with Thomas Tuchel’s tactical approach and admitted he would like to rejoin Inter Milan of Serie A, where he played before he joined Chelsea in the summer of 2021.
After just a season at Chelsea, Lukaku forced his loan move back to the Italian superpower on loan since it was difficult for him to play regularly and maintain a consistent form at Chelsea.
