Lukaku seals Inter loan move

Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku, has finally completed a loan move to Inter Milan after both clubs agreed on a £7.7m deal through a 3-hour video call as reported by the Italian media, La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Belgium international has been eager to return to Italy following his poor outing in England for Chelsea, scoring 15 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions.

Prior to this, the new Chelsea CEO, Todd Boehly, was against consenting to the deal but head coach Thomas Tuchel advised that it is better to allow the former Inter goalpoacher return to San Siro.

However, with this development, Chelsea will have to find a replacement with Manchester City forward, Raheem Sterling, among the list of targets pencilled down by Tuchel.

From the report of La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Nerazzurri owner, Steven Zhang, agreed to the loan deal worth an initial £6m fee with an added £1.7m in potential bonuses. Yesterday, Inter had stressed they would not break the bank for the loan deal for a player who is not needed in the squad.

The Italian club praised their attackers, dignifying them to have led the front line that produced tangible results since the departure of the Belgian to Stamford Bridge in a deal worth €113m last season.
