Italian journalist Fabrizio Biasin feels that Inter are not all that likely to consider bringing striker Romelu Lukaku back to the club even if there is still a possibility.
Speaking to the Twitch stream of Italian news outlet Calciomercato.it, as reported by FCInter1908, Biasin explained that the club’s directors would likely have serious reservations about signing the Belgian back.
Lukaku’s sale to Chelsea last summer rocked the Nerazzurri, with the Belgian having been the club’s leader in both goals and assists last campaign on the way to the Scudetto.
The Blues made a massive investment in the 28-year-old, but things haven’t yet clicked for him in London, where he has failed to recapture the form that had convinced them to sign him.
Inter, meanwhile, have altered their style of play in attack under new coach Simone Inzaghi, whilst the approach off the pitch has been geared more towards youth, potential, and value in the transfer market rather than immediate proven quality.
“The chances of him returning to Inter next season are close to zero,” Biasin said of the Belgian. “You can never say never, we’ve seen just about everything, but what is probably the player’s desire above all, is impossible for many reasons.”
“The first is money,” he continued, “[Chelsea] paid €115 million. A two-year loan deal could be hypothesized, but it would still be difficult.”
“And we’re still yet to see if Marotta and Ausilio would ever consider bringing him back to Milan,” the journalist added, “I’m not too convinced that they would want him back here.”
