Inter Milan repeating Man Utd transfer trick on Chelsea in Romelu Lukaku pursuit | Football | Sport


Inter Milan are hopeful of repeating the transfer trick that saw them sign Alexis Sanchez from Manchester United in their pursuit of Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian is understood to be ready to leave Chelsea, despite only returning to Stamford Bridge last summer.

It has been a disastrous return to the Blues for Lukaku as he scored just eight Premier League goals. His campaign was frequently punctuated by reports of his unhappiness, with Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel regularly benching him as he struggled to fit in.

A return to Inter would appear to be the most likely scenario, with Lukaku having starred across a two-season spell at the San Siro. But his £325,000 per week salary and Chelsea’s desire to recoup as much of the £97million fee they paid for him last year as possible are obstacles to any Inter move.

But according to The Sun, Inter are hoping to use a plan they have deployed before in an attempt to secure Lukaku’s return. That plan is for Lukaku to arrive on loan as part of a ‘salary-sharing’ deal.
