The Belgium striker is back at San Siro less than 12 months after leaving the Nerazzurri to become the Blues’ club-record signing.
Inter have confirmed the loan signing of striker Romelu Lukaku as the Belgian returns to Serie A after just one disappointing season with Chelsea.
The San Siro club will pay the Blues an €8 million (£6.8m/$8.4m) loan fee, with the potential for performance-related add-ons.
Lukaku’s move comes one year after he joined Chelsea for a club-record fee of £100m ($136m) last summer.
Inter Milan president has announced Lukaku deal to be appeared with club president Steven Zhang atop a building in Milan to confirm the deal.
“So we’re going to score a lot of goals?” Zhang asked Lukaku in a video posted to Inter’s social media accounts.
Why is Lukaku leaving Chelsea?
The Blues were keen to get Lukaku’s club-high £325,000-a-week wages off their books after a breakdown in the relationship between the striker and manager Thomas Tuchel.
New Chelsea owner Todd Boehly had prioritised the negotiations around Lukaku to kickstart the club’s summer business, while Lukaku was also keen to leave Stamford Bridge.
