Chelsea and Inter Milan strike first Romelu Lukaku agreement but final hiccup remains

Chelsea have a final obstacle in discussions with Inter Milan over a loan deal for striker Romelu Lukaku despite agreeing that the Serie A club will pay the Belgian’s salary, according to reports. Lukaku has made clear his desire to re-join Inter following a dismal season at Stamford Bridge. 

The 29-year-old first hinted at wanting to go back to Inter last December. He told Sky Italia: "Now I think it is right to speak because I have always said that I have Inter in my heart, I will return to play there, I really hope so. I really hope in the depths of my heart to return to Inter, not at the end of my career, but at a still good level to hopefully win more."

Lukaku endured a frustrating year at Chelsea after joining from the Italian outfit in a blockbuster club-record £97.5million deal. He scored just eight goals in 26 Premier League outings and an ankle injury limited his game time. 

Chelsea appear keen to resolve a quick exit for the forward, who also had a spell at the club a decade ago. They have been in talks with Inter over a return to Italy but are reportedly still some way away from agreeing a proposed loan.
