Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku wants to return to Inter after leaving last summer, but the feasibility of such a move will depend on the Blues’ ownership situation.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera, who report that the Belgian would have to accept a wage cut to make the move on loan, and that the situation is currently up in the air but will be resolved in the coming weeks along with the London club’s ownership.
Chelsea owner Roman Abrahmovich has put the club up for sale due to the sanctions that he faces from the UK government because of his ties to the Vladimir Putin regime.
The Premier League side will have new owners in the near future, and only once they are settled in will it become clear whether Lukaku could possibly move back to Inter.
The striker left the Nerazzurri last summer in a deal worth €115 million, but he has yet to really settle in at Chelsea and reportedly wants a move back to Inter.
If a sensational return for Lukaku were to happen, it would be on the terms of a paid loan, whilst he would also have to accept a reduction to the €12 million net per season which he currently earns for Chelsea.
However, before this could start to be seriously be discussed, the new owners at the club will have to be decided.
