Beppe Marotta, Piero Ausilio & Dario Baccin Could Leave Inter Over Romelu Lukaku Being Sold, Italian Media Claims

Key figures behind the scenes at Inter could depart if Romelu Lukaku is sold to Chelsea, with CEO Beppe Marotta and Sporting Directors Piero Ausilio and Dario Baccin considering their options in light of the possible departure of the key player.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the trio are not happy with the decision to accept an offer for Chelsea for the 28-year-old, and that they may soon be on their way.

Lukaku’s exit looks likely after European champions Chelsea have made a major push to sign him this week, and the news has left players and staff members at the Nerazzurri in shock.

Members of the squad have not spoken to the Belgian, but the mood in pre-season training is reported to be one of confusion.

The Belgian’s exit could significantly weaken the team heading into the season later this month, and it looks less likely that the team will be strong enough to defend last season’s Scudetto crown.

This has left the likes of Marotta, Ausilio, and Baccin feeling similarly uncertain about the Nerazzurri project along with the players, and it now looks as though they may decide not to renew their contracts at the club next summer, or could even leave earlier than that.

Renewals were thought to have been in talks for the three important figures, with extensions to the trio’s contracts promised by President Steven Zhang but not yet made official, but it now looks doubtful that all three will be able to continue working with the club.
