Inter, until now, have barely been able to enjoy Lukaku’s return. The Belgian, due to a muscle injury, only played three games, with a goal and an assist in 227′, but everything indicates that he will have much more time to make the interisti fall in love again. According to ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’, in fact, the striker will stay in what he has defined as “his home” well beyond June 2023, which is when his loan expires.
The Italians will negotiate with Chelsea in the coming months, but there would already be an agreement in principle for Lukaku to continue at the San Siro for the 2023/24 season and, from then on, find a way for the player to become a Nerazzurri again definitely. The 115 million invested in the summer of 2021 make him the most expensive signing in the history of the blues, who now no longer need him. The memory of just eight goals in the Premier League last year is still very much alive in London, where they want to turn the page. “The disappointment was too great”, according to ‘La Gazzetta’, “to think about trying again”.
This year’s transfer cost Inter eight million plus three in variables, and the Milanese value proposing the same agreement for next year, but with an affordable purchase right. While, obviously, it will be Lukaku’s turn to show that the Nerazzurri must continue betting on him. Next Saturday, against Fiorentina, Inzaghi could finally summon him after his long absence. Romelu has to start over, once again
