The fate of Romelu Lukaku at Chelsea is currently uncertain, after he was loaned out to Inter Milan.
Gianluca Di Marzio has stated that ex-Chelsea director
Marina Granovskia would not have let Lukaku return to Inter
Milan after his underwhelming performance. Chelsea’s
£97.5million acquisition of Romelu Lukaku was a source of
great excitement for Chelsea fans worldwide. His two goals
on debut only multiplied that excitement. However, the
excitement quickly vanished after an injury to Lukaku in the
mid-season and his subsequent underwhelming
performances. Furthermore, his infamous interview with Sky
Sports added more salt to the wounds of the Chelsea fans.
The Belgian sparked controversy after he complained about
not getting playing time under Thomas Tuchel. This was the
main reason for Lukaku’s fallout with the then Chelsea
manager Thomas Tuchel.
Consequently, the Blues sent off Lukaku back to Inter Milan
on loan. According to multiple reports, Lukaku pushed a lot
for the deal to be completed in the preseason. Todd
Bohely’s first outgoing player as a Chelsea owner was the
loan of Romelu Lukau. However, Gianluca Di Marzio has
claimed that Granovskia, who was fired by the new owners,
would not have let the Belgian leave this summer.
“I don’t think Marina Granovskaia would have allowed his
return to Inter, ”
said Di Marzio.
“She would have kept him at Chelsea walking around
Stamford Bridge, rather, or at Cobham. She would not have
loaned him out to Inter.”
“LUKAKU WILL NOT RETURN TO CHELSEA”-
Speaking to Calciomercato , Gianluca Di Marzio added that
it is very unlikely that Romelu Lukaku will return to Stamford
Bridge. As things stand, successive loan deals between Inter
Milan and the Blues seem like a much better possibility for
all the parties involved.
“I really don’t think Lukaku will return to Chelsea”,
said Di Marzio.
“ How could he still play with the Chelsea shirt? He did
everything to return to Inter. I think Chelsea and Inter will
find the best solution, maybe another loan because in this
deal Inter have paid 8 million for the loan and would pay
another 10 million for a new loan next year . The price
would then go down more and more if Inter decided to buy
