What has been announced to the whole world about Romelu Lukaku’s transfer to Inter Milan from Chelsea is that it is a one-season loan deal, with no clear details about this matter.
What is now emerging is that there is an tacit agreement to extend that loan for a second year, and this is what the three parties, Chelsea, Inter, and the player have agreed upon.
The British newspaper “Daily Mail” confirms that Lukaku, in which Inter Milan paid 8.2 million euros for his loan to Chelsea, an implicit agreement was reached to stay for a second season with an additional value then, and to reduce larger portions of his estimated salary of 235,000 euros per week with London club.
Chelsea would have preferred a permanent departure for Lukaku, but this will not happen at the moment, because the clubs wishing to include Lukaku will not be willing to pay a value even close to the 115 million euros spent by Chelsea to return the Belgian from Inter Milan, and therefore Chelsea will not be ready to lose from this Volume After just one season, the Belgian tank returned with high hopes to lead the Blues’ attack towards titles.
Although he did not provide the desired level with Chelsea last season and clearly declared that he was “unhappy” last January, Lukaku scored 15 goals with the Blues last season, and this suggests the technical value of the Belgian even in the darkest conditions.
