Ex-Nerazzurri President Massimo Moratti: “€130M For Romelu Lukaku Is Tempting For Inter”

Former Inter President Massimo Moratti has given his opinion on the possibility that striker Romelu Lukaku could be sold to Chelsea.

Speaking to Italian news outlet TMW Radio, as reported by FCInter1908, the former President expressed sympathy for the club’s current position, suggesting that it would be difficult not to accept Chelsea’s offer for the Belgian.

Moratti was president of the Nerazzurri for eighteen years between 1995 and 2013, overseeing multiple periods in the clubs history, winning five Scudetti and the Champions League.

The former President saw many top players and managers come and go, and the club could be experiencing another huge loss in their summer of upheavel, with Lukaku possibly set to depart following the major sale of wing-back Achraf Hakimi.

For Moratti, this would be unfortunate, but not entirely surprising, and even after being led to the Scudetto by the Belgian, the club could reasonably be persuaded to part ways with the player.

“I also read in the newspapers about the negotiations with Chelsea,” he stated “honestly I don’t know anything more than what has emerged there. There is talk of €130 million, for Inter that is certainly tempting.”

He continued, “I don’t know the numbers and I don’t know what the club’s needs are right now, but the figures being talked about are certainly significant.”

Asked about the possible arrivals of Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina or Duvan Zapata as replacements for the Belgian, Moratti stated that “They are both good, for sure.”
