Journalist Gianluca di Marzio has stated that Chelsea and Inter would look to find the best possible solution for the future of Romelu Lukaku and it could involve another loan deal for the Belgian.
Lukaku was desperate to return to Inter in the summer after a frustrating spell at Chelsea. While he is currently out injured and missed the vital Milan derby, he did find the net for the Nerazzurri earlier in the campaign.
Gianluca di Marzio appeared on a show by Sky recently and he gave his views and insights about potential transfers and what happened in the summer. He spoke about Lukaku’s situation and his future at Inter.
He stated: “He [Lukaku] did everything to return to Inter. I think Chelsea and Inter will find the best solution, maybe another loan, but I see his return unlikely.”
The journalist further stated: “In this deal, Inter paid €8 million for the loan and would pay another €10 million for a new loan next year. The price would then go down more and more if Inter decided to buy him back.”
Di Marzio also stated that he initially thought that Lukaku’s return to Inter was not possible and Marina Granovskaia would not have allowed a move to go through in any way. But a player’s desire made all the difference and allowed Lukaku to seal a return to Inter.
