Romelu Lukaku’s entourage are not ready to commit the striker’s future to Inter yet, according to a report in the Italian media today.
Corriere della Sera’s print edition said the striker’s representatives wanted to see how the transfer window developed before deciding not to leave the Nerazzurri.
Lukaku’s people also wish to understand better what Steven Zhang has in mind for Inter, with Suning known to be targeting cost-cutting in the summer.
Inter’s directors are confident they can keep Lukaku, despite interest from Chelsea, but they are also realistic and know that a €120 million offer could force them to completely change their plans.
Chelsea want Lukaku back to help them launch a Premier League title challenge next season, with Erling Haaland also a target alongside Lukaku.
Inter do not want to sell Lukaku though and instead they have decided to balance their books by selling Achraf Hakimi, who is wanted by Paris Saint-Germain.
PSG have offered €60 million but Inter want €80 million, and after a deal is completed they would chase Barcelona’s Emerson Royal as a replacement.
