Romelu Lukaku may return to Chelsea after Inter Milan said they would not sign the Belgian on a permanent deal.
Inter Milan’s chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed the club is not signing Romelu Lukaku on a permanent deal and the Belgian will return to Chelsea at the end of the season.
Marotta, however, claimed that if Lukaku regains his peak from the injuries he has suffered, he may get his dream transfer by moving to Inter Milan.
The 29-year-old Belgian striker has scored five goals in 17 appearances this season.
He is still hungry to stay at Inter Milan, but it is left to the management of the club to consider such a move.
Lukaku has a good relationship with the club’s fans, and they are one of the best in the world, according to him.
The player is not in good form, and he is totally different from the Lukaku we saw three years ago at Inter Milan, where he finished as the highest goal scorer in Serie A before moving to Chelsea on a record fee.
Since Lukaku returned to Inter Milan last summer, his playing time has been limited due to being constantly sidelined with injuries.
However, Lukaku has been criticized by a lot of football legends for his poor pace and first-touch control isaues.
Former Inter striker Christian Vieri was the latest to criticize him, stating he would have outscored Lukaku at the age of 49.
Inter Milan created ten chances every game. They have top-class wingers on their right and left backs, yet, he has not been able to do much with the chances.
The Belgian striker returned to Inter Milan after an explosive interview stating his intention of moving back to the Serie A giant amidst issues with the then Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel.
However, the player stated his intention to retire with his hometown team, Anderlecht.
Can Romelu Lukaku Become The Missing Piece In Chelsea’s Attack?
With Graham Potter now the manager of Chelsea and the club doing exceptional things with new players, Lukaku may be the cheat code for scoring goals next season.
The manager has been playing Kai Havertz as the striker, but he still needs a natural goal scorer next season in order for him to compete for silverware.
With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Armando Borja not getting enough chances to prove themselves, Lukaku coming in next season will make the Chelsea attack a nightmare for defenders to deal with.
The club also have David Fofana and Christian Nkunku, who will join next season.
Potter will love to build the team around the Belgian striker, who may love his return to the London side.
The player wants to be regarded as a legend, so getting to the top of his game
may be of interest to him.
The Chelsea owners won’t be satisfied next season, and they are more likely to invest heavily in the squad again.
Todd Boehly seems to be more ambitious about delivering the best for the London team based on his activities in the transfer market so far.
