Despite the fact that the wish of the interested party is to stay at Inter, to date the future of the Romelu Lukaku appears far from Milan. The reason, explains La Gazzetta dello Sport, is that not everything depends on the Belgian, but also on the chelsea and the Nerazzurri club that wants to understand. The decisive talk between both companies is on the agenda after the Champions League final of June 10.
At the end of the annual loan, Big Rom will return to London before finding out what could happen from July 1, with the variable Mauricio Pochettino, the future Chelsea coach, has entered the game with force: the Argentine coach has let the Blues board know that he wants to closely evaluate the opportunity to have a player like Lukaku in the squad. “The thing cannot stop having a weight, in the economy of a discourse linked to the future of the player. Romelu doesn’t seem to change his mind -says the pink one-. He is not distracted his head is at Inter, well beyond the Istanbul final that predicted everyone at the beginning of the season, from Zhang on down. But you have to take into account the ideas of a different Chelsea to the one he left 12 months ago. Because the Blues are the holders of a very high price, which in the balance of the London club two years after the purchase still weighs a little less than 70 million euros, 69 to be exact”.
Figures that complicate a definitive sale of the Belgian, aware that the only way to leave London again is to find a club that will accept an expensive loan. Inter has a quite clear point of view, with conditions that must be met simultaneously for a reconfirmation: the first is the qualification for the next champions leaguethe second is that Lukaku reduces his salary. “And here the player has shown an openness, obviously appreciated by Inter – continues the newspaper. It is the third condition that is missing. And that today distances Lukaku from Inter. Because Marotta and Ausilio would like a significant reduction compared to the eight million (not including bonuses) paid for this season. But here the Blues don’t seem to allow openings. They would like, in the best of cases, to repeat the same agreement from 12 months ago, in the event that Pochettino fails to change the Belgian’s mind. From the series: the package does not change. All the more reason now that Lukaku has (re)started to prove his worth, proving to be decisive in the Nerazzurri climb to Istanbul”. A summit is needed to unblock the situation, set after the Istanbul meeting.
