Lukaku is back to Inter? Is this amazing transfer happening for Inter?!

Romelu Lukaku, the Belgian heavy-weight striker, has seen very different times in his professional footballing career. He had eventually made his Premier League debut for the Blues at the Stamford Bridge. As a young star who didn’t shine at Chelsea, he had been sent to loan for different clubs in the Premier League. In his last year of loan for Everton, the club had seen some potential in the striker and had signed him after the season. His form in Everton had been one of the reasons for his rise in the stardom. In Everton, being the regular starter for the team got him more playing time to allow him to prove his worth in the Premier League. Soon, the eyes of Manchester United scouts fell on him. This transfer was necessary as United’s legend, Wayne Rooney, was leaving the club and joining Everton. United splashed out nearly 90 million for the striker. That’s where the problem began. His loss in the form started in the United squad, and he was soon to move to another club following the year.

He was looking clueless out there at United. Soon, United management wanted to get rid of high-paid Belgian. Some clubs in Italy were interested in Lukaku. The transfer that revived his career was to move to the Italian giants, Inter Milan. Inter had transformed the Belgian striker into a new level. His attacking duo with Lautaro Martinez had been destructive in the Serie A. In his debut season, Inter managed to reach second in the League falling 1 point behind Juventus. The following season, Inter dominated the Serie A and going to win the title by a 12-point lead over the rivals AC Milan leaving them trailing second in the league table.

He had returned to his boyhood club on 12th August, 2021. Chelsea had brought the striker for a whooping £97.5 million. But, this transfer was an utter flop for both the player and the club. Lukaku had failed to make an impact being so experienced with his gameplay. In his 36 appearances for the Blues, he only managed to score 8 goals in the entire time on the pitch. He had clearly seen a dip in his performance, and he wasn’t the dominant striker when he had joined the club. 

As Chelsea’s ban had not been removed, they were in a miserable state. Now the striker wants to change his club and play for a different club. Chelsea has been in a terrible condition since Roman Abramovich had to sell the club and resign from his duties. Since the arrival of the new owner, Todd Boehly, wants some new players to join this summer for Chelsea. Chelsea’s manager, Thomas Tuchel and Lukaku, didn’t seem to fit in with his managing system and is now in desperation of an exit through this atmosphere. 

Tuchel had expressed media that “He might be exploring new options this summer.” Inter has seen a void after Lukaku’s departure as the other strikers apart from Martinez aren’t able to impact the attack, so this could be a good deal for both the club. Will Romelu Lukaku be convinced and stay another year with the Blues? Or Will he go back to Italy and regain his explicit form with Inter? Stay tuned at The Sportsway for further updates.
