Chelsea are set to have a meeting with Inter Milan to determine the future of £325k-a-week man Romelu Lukaku after the Italian side’s Champions League final against Manchester City, reports Fabrizio Romano. The Blues bought the striker from Inter back in August of 2021 but he was loaned back to them at the beginning of this season, creating an interesting situation involving the 30-year-old where many Chelsea will be excited to see him off their books for good.

With the final of Europe’s most prestigious club tournament approaching, Romelu Lukaku has picked the perfect time to ramp up his goal production. Scoring five goals in four consecutive games in the Serie A, his increase of lethality in front of goal has helped the Nerazzuri secure a top-four finish.

Manager Simeone Inzaghi noted that he has rotated his strikers throughout his team’s recent run of fixtures. However, the Belgian’s performances might have earned him a starting position in arguably the biggest game of his career. If he can effectively lead the attack and bring the Champions League trophy back to Italy, the higher-ups for both teams might consider changing the value of the player.

Potential Outcomes of the Romelu Lukaku Transfer Saga

If the Stamford Bridge occupants decide to make Lukaku part of their roster again, they will add yet another player to an already bloated squad. However, newly appointed manager Mauricio Pochettino could play this to his advantage. The Argentine could offload unwanted assets and build his new team around the size and power of the 6’3” attacker.

If the deal changes from a loan to a transfer, the West London team will probably demand more than Lukaku’s estimated transfer value of £35 million. However, the left-footed target man’s wishes to stay a player at the San Siro could be a determining factor in negotiations. The uncertainty of Pochettino’s strategy, coupled with a happy and lethal finisher in Italy, could very well lead to a future that sees fans of the black and blue watch their number 90 on a permanent basis.
