Chelsea and Inter Milan have agreed to loan the Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku According to Sky in Italy, an agreement has been made between Chelsea and Inter Milan over the loaning out of striker Romelu Lukaku.

Prior to his return to the San Siro, the 29-year-old is anticipated to face medical exams the following week.

Just 11 months after selling Lukaku to Chelsea for £97.5 million, Inter only needs to finalize the deal’s terms before welcoming him back to the team.

To ease his leaving, Lukaku has agreed to a pay cut of 30%; as a result, his earnings will decrease from £10 million after taxes to £7 million. Inter will cover his entire salary.

The negotiations between Lukaku’s attorney Sebastian Ledure and Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta went through numerous rounds before the breakthrough on Tuesday night.

In response to an interview Romelu Lukaku made to Sky in Italy in December, Inter Milan chief executive Giuseppe Marotta said the club is not pressing for a potential return for Lukaku but is still interested in re-signing him this summer.

After returning to Stamford Bridge for a club record deal, Lukaku managed just eight Premier League goals in 26 appearances last season.

In December, Lukaku told Sky in Italy he wanted to return to Inter one day, saying: “I really hope in the depths of my heart to return to Inter, not at the end of my career, but at a still good level to hopefully win more.”

Last week, it was revealed Inter cannot afford to sign Lukaku – who scored 64 goals in 95 games and helped them to the Serie A title during his time at the club – on a permanent deal.

Chelsea decided to let Lukaku leave after talks between Todd Boehly – who was appointed chairman and interim sporting director on Wednesday – and Thomas Tuchel, as well as discussions between Boehly and Lukaku.

The owner and head coach wanted to resolve Lukaku’s future quickly so as they could focus on strengthening their squad this summer.

Chelsea are keen to sign Raheem Sterling from Manchester City, while Richarlison, Ousmane Dembele, Jules Kounde, Matthijs de Ligt, Jonathan Clauss and Milan Skriniar are also targets.

‘One of the worst transfers in PL history’

Kaveh Solhekol and Dharmesh Sheth discuss whether Romelu Lukaku is one of the worst Premier League signings ever, as the Chelsea striker is set to return to Inter Milan

Sky Sports News’ chief reporter Kaveh Solhekol:

“There isn’t a positive spin you can put on this. The transfer will go down in Premier League history as one of the worst transfer deals of all time. Chelsea signed him for almost £100m, he was brilliant for two seasons at Inter, but came to Chelsea and things started going wrong quickly.

“He gave that interview to Sky in Italy in which he basically said he wanted to go back to Inter. It looks from the outside that his heart hasn’t been in it. I understand, he doesn’t particularly like the way Chelsea play under Thomas Tuchel, but it doesn’t look like he’s tried too hard to adapt. I think the vast majority of Chelsea supporters will be glad to see the back of him.

“But it is an extraordinary tale, a player they signed for almost £100m going back to Inter a year later on what will probably be a loan deal, and Inter will pay £10m to begin with. And then there are his wages, because he’s on about £325,000 per week at Chelsea. Someone close to the negotiations told us yesterday that he is leaving. He doesn’t have a future at Chelsea.”

Which positions are Chelsea targeting?

Sky Sports News’ senior reporter Melissa Reddy:

Chelsea are pressing ahead with their summer recruitment plans now that the £4.25bn Todd Boehly-led consortium takeover of the club has been completed.

The Blues have a verbal agreement already in place with Sevilla defender Jules Kounde, with the Spanish club preferring a quick deal as they aim to balance their books before June 30.

Talks on a deal for Kounde had collapsed last year but there is optimism from all parties it will get done this time.

Paris Saint-Germain’s Presnel Kimpembe is part of a shortlist of central defensive options and is Thomas Tuchel’s preference. Atletico Madrid’s Jose Gimenez and RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiol are also among those being looked at.

 

 

Prior to facing London rivals Spurs in their first home game, Chelsea’s 2022–23 season begins with a trip to Frank Lampard’s Everton.

On August 6, at 5.30 p.m., Thomas Tuchel’s team will play a rematch against Blues great Lampard at Goodison Park before Tottenham comes to Stamford Bridge the following week.

On September 17, Manchester United will go to West London to face Chelsea. On October 22, Arsenal will travel to West London to face Chelsea.
