Chelsea and Roma are still continuing to negotiate on a loan fee for former Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku.

This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews, who also report that the Giallorossi will also expect the Belgian to reduce his wages in order to join on a season-long loan.

Lukaku looks to have finally found a club for this season, after a summer of high drama and controversy.

A return to Inter fell through in acrimonious circumstances. Meanwhile, flirtations with Juventus and AC Milan seemingly went nowhere.

Lukaku was also a target for the free-spending Saudi Pro League.

And Chelsea always made clear that Saudi Pro League was their preferred destination for Lukaku. This would make it more straightforward for the Blues to recoup a decent chunk of what they paid for the 30-year-old in 2021.

However, Lukaku wants to stay in Europe.

And now it looks as though he’ll be back in Serie A after. But now with the Nerazzurri, the Rossoneri, or the Bianconeri.

Roma & Chelsea Negotiating Details Of Romelu Lukaku Transfer

Naturally, Chelsea’s priority has been to offload Lukaku once and for all this summer.

And the Londoners looked set to get their wish. Inter were ready to pay €35 million plus €5 million in add-ons, at least prior to angrily pulling the plug on deal in response to the Belgian’s antics.

But now Chelsea will have to settle for another loan move.

According to Sky, there is no rush between the Blues and the Giallorossi in negotiations for Lukaku.

The broadcaster reports that Roma are hoping to pay a fee of €5-6 million for the Belgian on loan for one season.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are aiming for the same fee that Inter paid last summer. That would entail at least €8 million.

Meanwhile, Roma will ask Lukaku to reduce his wages to no more than €7-8 million in order to sign the 30-year-old striker.
