Inter Milan seek to extend Chelsea striker Lukaku loan into second season

Inter Milan are keen to extend Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku’s loan into a second season.

The Belgian was signed by the Blues in the summer of 2021 from the Serie A side for £97.5million.

But soon after he expressed his desire to go back to Inter Milan and Sky Italia’s Gianluca di Marzio has revealed the two clubs will hope to find a solution to the Lukaku saga that could involve another loan.

DI Marzio stated: “He [Lukaku] did everything to return to Inter. I think Chelsea and Inter will find the best solution, maybe another loan, but I see his return unlikely.

“In this deal, Inter paid £7million for the loan and would pay another £9million for a new loan next year. The price would then go down more and more if Inter decided to buy him back.”
