Lukaku Rules Out Chelsea Return

By Daily Sports Nigeria on September 27, 2022

Romelu Lukaku is reportedly already looking to extend his stay at Inter Milan beyond this season following his disastrous return to Chelsea.

The Belgium international returned to the San Siro on a season-long loan from Chelsea this summer and according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the striker has no immediate plans to go back to Stamford Bridge.

Officials at the Serie A club is believed to be planning a renewal of his loan deal so that the 29-year-old extends his stay in Milan until the end of the 2023–24 season.

Inter swooped for Lukaku in 2019 after a frustrating spell at Manchester United. The Belgian quickly struck up a superb partnership with Argentine striker, Lautaro Martinez and the pair helped fire Inter to their Serie A title in 2021 – their first for 11 years.

Lukaku’s £100m move to Chelsea in 2021 did not go to plan after failing to replicate the form he showed in Serie A and he was subsequently banished to the bench by former boss Thomas Tuchel.

The striker appeared to have found his mojo again and scored two minutes into his second debut for Inter against Lecce on the opening day of the season.

But injury has forced Lukaku to miss Inter’s last six games that have culminated in the 2021 Scudetto winners languishing in seventh place in the table – five points adrift of leaders Napoli.
