Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is set to return to London very soon where he will wage an all-out campaign to convince his current club to sanction a return to Inter this summer.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the 29-year-old will leave the Belgian national team training camp with an ankle injury and get to work trying to persuade the Blues.

Lukaku’s lawyer Sebastien Ledure met with Inter last week where the parties clarified that it will be up to the striker and his representatives to convince Chelsea on an improbable loan return just one year after his big money sale.

The 29-year-old intends to speak with Chelsea’s directors personally to make the case for the move back to the Nerazzurri, whilst new owner Todd Boehly is also set to hold talks with coach Thomas Tuchel about the club’s transfer strategy.

Should Boehly believe that there is no option but to let Lukaku leave, then the Belgian could persuade the new owner to honour his wishes, at which point talks between Chelsea and Inter would become possible.

Meanwhile, Lukaku will also speak with Blues teammate Ruben Loftus-Cheek, a player who the Nerazzurri are also targeting on loan, about the possibility of making the switch to Serie A together.

Lukaku is personal friends with Loftus-Cheek, and would welcome bringing the 25-year-old to Inter with him, and he plans to try and sell him on the idea, while Chelsea would be amenable to letting him go for the right offer.
