Should Inter sell striker Romelu Lukaku this summer, other top players could take it as a signal to leave the club as well.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that Lautaro Martinez and Stefan de Vrij are reconsidering their immediate futures with the Nerazzurri amid the news that the Belgian is on track for an exit.

The news that Inter could accept an offer from Chelsea for their star striker, and that the 28-year-old would not stand in the way of a move, has sent shock waves through the Nerazzurri world, including among the squad in pre-season training.

The matter is still up in the air and has not been directly discussed with the Belgian, but many players are perplexed at the possibility that a key player like Lukaku could depart just two weeks before the new Serie A season is set to begin.

Martinez and de Vrij are now both reconsidering the Inter project and their place in it, although much remains to be revealed about how their situations ultimately unfold.
