The player in question is Romelu Lukaku.
Lukaku, 30, was sold to Inter Milan in 2019 from Manchester United.
The Belgian had an impressive first stint with the Serie A side, scoring 23 and assisting two in 36 league ties in 2019/20. He then netted 24 and assisted 10 in 36 league matches during 2020/21 when Inter were crowned Serie A champions.
Chelsea bought Lukaku from the Italian outfit after that impressive season but he had a poor return stint with Chelsea. The Blues then loaned him back to Inter for the last campaign.
Lukaku’s second stint in Italy did not go to plan, though. He scored just 10 league goals (14 in all competitions) and capped off his loan spell by missing some big chances in the Champions League final.
Now, 90min claim Chelsea’s Lukaku is expected to leave the club this summer and the Blues are now closing in on an agreement with Inter Milan.
Inter Milan are ready to sign the player permanently but they will not be able to pay big money for him this summer.
The two clubs are now working on a loan deal with an obligation to buy. They are expected to reach a compromise soon.
