Romelu Lukaku has been a beast of a striker since his move to Inter Milan. 64 goals in 95 appearances for the Serie A giants is no small feat, and the 28-year-old has been linked with a return to Chelsea where it is believed he has unfinished business.

Lukaku and his agent has insisted that he would remain at the San Siro next season, and Inter president has also said they won’t be selling the striker.

However, football reporter Peter O’Rourke has said that things change in football and players don’t always say the truth to the media.

O’Rourke had said on the Terrace YouTube channel that Romelu Lukaku would happily return to Chelsea if Inter Milan made him available. According to O’Rourke, all Chelsea have to do is place a bid of £100m for Lukaku.

“Lukaku’s always been on their (Chelsea’s) list,” he said.

“But their (Inter’s) financial issues mean maybe he could be gettable this summer.

“I think if someone like Chelsea were to put down +£100m for Lukaku this summer, that’s going to be hard for Inter to turn down.

“Even though the players come out and said he’s happy at Inter and he wants to stay in Italy, I think this could be taken out of his hands.

“The club’s owners, in desperate need of money, are going to say ‘right, we can’t turn this down. It’s up to you Romelu if you want to go.’

“I think if that does happen, Lukaku will gladly make the move back to Chelsea.”
