As a loan agreement nears completion, Romelu Lukaku will return to Inter Milan this season.
There are a few more issues to iron out, as well as a final loan charge to agree on, but it appears like everyone is working hard to finalize the transaction as quickly as possible. According to the sources below, Inter is hopeful of completing a deal before the end of the week.
Richarlison has been contacted by Chelsea!
Lukaku’s departure will be welcomed by Chelsea supporters, but it appears that his departure will only be temporary, at least for this season.
Fabrizio Romano has outlined the terms of the loan, and it looks that Inter will not be obligated to buy Lukaku at the conclusion of the season-long loan, which means he might be back at Chelsea this time next year, causing the same problems.
Inter are optimistic to get Romelu Lukaku’s deal done by the end of this week. €7m plus add-ons bid already submitted, Chelsea asked for €10m. plus add-ons. 🔵 #CFC
There’s no obligation to buy clause included in the negotiation as thing stand. Never been discussed.
