Chelsea transfer news: Romelu Lukaku exit ‘agreed’ as Todd Boehly uses his contacts | Football | Sport
Chelsea have now reached an ‘agreement in principle’ to loan Romelu Lukaku back to Inter Milan, according to reports. Lukaku’s return to Stamford Bridge did not live up to expectations last year and he even struggled to start regularly under Thomas Tuchel.
Heading into the summer transfer window, it became clear that Lukaku was itching for a move back to the San Siro and Inter were also pushing for a deal.

Inter’s first offer was rejected, but the two parties have returned to the table and now reached an ‘agreement’, according to The Athletic.
