Romelu Lukaku going back to Chelsea has become the talk of the town this week, with Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan future now in doubt.
As revealed by Gazzetta dello Sport, Conte could leave Inter within 48 hours due to the bad financial situation at the club and the need to sell players.

One of those players could be Romelu Lukaku, with Chelsea interested.
In fact, The Blues are not just interested in Lukaku, according to Belgian reporter Sacha Tavolieri, The Blues have started talks with his agent over the move.
Tavolieri claims that Inter would let Lukaku go for a fee of around 80 million euros, which equates to roughly £69 million.
With the announcement of the possible departure of Antonio Conte, Inter would likely sell Romelu Lukaku for €80m (£69m). Chelsea are already in contact with his agent.

Avec l’annonce du départ possible de #Conte, se pose la question de celui de #Lukaku. L’#Inter serait susceptible de le vendre pour ~ 80M€. Notre #DiablesRouges pourrait retrouver la #PremierLeague & son club de coeur #ChelseaFC, déjà en contacts avec son agent. Wait and see… pic.twitter.com/QHnbt0dQBX

This fee in my opinion, sounds like it could be within reach for what Chelsea would want to pay for their new big name striker, and Lukaku certainly appears to be the most realistic target right now.
All depends on what happens with Conte.
