Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has distanced himself from Romelu Lukaku’s rumoured move to Inter on loan this summer, according to a report in the Italian media today.

The Spaniard was talking to the press during his conference ahead of their Nations League match against the Netherlands, as reported by FCInternews.

Romelu Lukaku is a key part of the squad but there is a chance his thoughts are being taken up by the possibility of returning to Inter rather than spending another season under Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea.

Roberto Martinez backed the former Manchester United striker to make the right decision and handle the situation well but he did not let on that he has any insider knowledge.

“We have not spoken about his future, but what is certain is that he really wanted to come back and play for the national team. I haven’t spoken to Romelu about his future, but he will handle the situation well because it is not the first time it has happened to him in his career.

“Inter? Regarding a possible return to Italy, I don’t have enough information to comment on the subject.”

Inter would need to find a way to negotiate a loan deal with Chelsea that is not too financially restrictive. They also need to make plenty of space in the wage budget to bring Romelu Lukaku back.
