Romelu Lukaku Is Ready To Take Wage Cut To Remain At Inter Milan Next Season, Italian Media Report
Inter striker Romelu Lukaku is determined to remain at the club next season and would be ready to lower his wage demands to facilitate a move.
As reported in today’s newspaper edition of Tuttosport, the Belgian striker has no intention of returning to parent club Chelsea in the summer, after returning to Inter on loan from the Premier League outfit.
The Nerazzurri spent €8 million to secure Lukaku on loan, plus €3m in bonuses, whilst they are also contributing a further €8m to the former Manchester United striker’s €12m wages.
However, Inter CEO Beppe Marotta would only consider bringing Lukaku back if these terms were renegotiated with Chelsea, but the Blues are thought to be reluctant to offer any discounts, particularly if a renewal doesn’t include an obligatory transfer in 2024.
Lukaku is determined to prove his worth to Inter on the pitch after a dreadful season, in which he has played less than 400 minutes and scored only two goals in all competitions.
