Inter Milan and Chelsea are reportedly entering direct talks in regards to Romelu Lukaku and his desire to return to the San Siro. The €115m Chelsea bench warmer, couldn’t help myself, wasn’t a favorite of Thomas Tuchel and a loan move back to Inter may be in the cards after all.

The talks are a result of Lukaku and his team laying the groundwork with Inter directly. Any semblance of a deal would likely look like a loan with an option to buy, with Chelsea hopefully helping out on the wage end of things.

Chelsea are clearly looking to move on from Rom after splurging for the transfer just last summer. These talks will likely drag on with Inter not feeling the need to overplay their hand given everyone in the world understands Lukaku and Chelsea aren’t working out.
