Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku returns to Inter Milan on loan

Chelsea striker and Belgian Striker, Romelu Lukaku returned to Inter Milan on a year loan deal after an agreement is reached between the two clubs.

The two clubs have agreed a loan move totalling £10.3m, made up of a loan fee of £6.9m plus £3.4m in bonuses.

Only the final details of the deal need to be resolved before Inter can welcome Lukaku back to the club just 11 months after they sold him to Chelsea for £97.5m.

The 29-year-old is expected to undergo medical examinations next week ahead of his return to the San Siro.

The breakthrough on Tuesday night came after several rounds of negotiations over the past few weeks involving Lukaku’s lawyer Sebastian Ledure and Inter chief executive Giuseppe Marotta.

Lukaku scored just eight Premier League goals in 26 outings last season after returning to Stamford Bridge for a club-record fee.

In December, Lukaku told Sky in Italy he wanted to return to Inter one day, saying: “I really hope in the depths of my heart to return to Inter, not at the end of my career, but at a still good level to hopefully win more.”

In the past week, Inter revealed they are unable to afford a permanent deal for Lukaku, who scored 64 goals during his time at the club and helped Inter win the Serie A title.

The deal was also confirmed by Fabrizio Romano through his Twitter account on Tuesday night.
