Chelsea and Milan ‘reach agreement’ for £280,000-a-week star
Chelsea have reached an agreement with Inter Milan to extend Romelu Lukaku’s loan deal until 2024 – it has been claimed in the media Lukaku was signed by just over 12 months ago as Thomas Tuchel was desperate to add a world class striker to the attack – and many had hoped that the Belgian would be a massive success.
But despite scoring a few goals – putting in a few solid performances – he looked nothing like the striker that banged in goals for fun at Inter Milan – and this summer – the Blues allowed him to leave on loan back to the Italian giants And since his move back to Inter – he has made it clear that he would like to stay in Italian football and the giants will look to loan the 29-year-old once again for the 2023-24 season.
However – Potter may want to keep him instead – with the player under contract until 2026 and it is believed the former Brighton boss would like to bring Lukaku back to the club But According to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport – Chelsea and Inter have now reached an agreement over extending the powerhouse deal with the Italians.
The report adds The official announcement will take place after new year, with all parties having reached agreement already. The Belgian forward will not return to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
The club will not need to delve into that transfer kitty in the coming windows and try to add some more strikers to the cabinet – because what they have right now will not win them too many more titles
