This morning we covered a story breaking from Italy suggesting that Chelsea had made a proposal to Romelu Lukaku and Inter Milan over a move this summer.
However, this report explained that Lukaku wanted to stay at Inter and blocked negotiations.
Since then, further Italian reports have backed up Chelsea’s approach and even claimed that Chelsea have called Lukaku to ask him about a move.
Gazzetta dello Sport say that Lukaku listened to Chelsea’s offer, but he politely told them no thank you because he does not wish to leave Inter.
Although, it is worth noting that even now you cannot rule out the move, because I do wonder what would happen if Inter were forced to accept Chelsea’s offer due to being in a sticky financial situation themselves.
Lukaku might want to stay, but Inter might find it impossible to reject a a big money offer. be interesting to see if this develops over the coming weeks.
