Romelu Lukaku has ‘rejected’ a move to Tottenham and is only interested in returning to Inter Milan, according to a new report.
Chelsea shelled out a club-record £97.5million fee to sign Lukaku from Inter last summer, but the Belgian striker has struggled for form and his old club are plotting an ambitious bid to bring him back to Italy.
Despite the fact that Lukaku has only been back in the Premier League for around 12 months, he already seems destined to depart these shores again – but that hasn’t prevented Tottenham and Antonio Conte from making an ambitious bid to snare the striker, according to Italian journalist Fabio Bergomi.
However, Bergomi, via Sport Witness claims that Lukaku ‘only wants’ to join Inter if he does depart Stamford Bridge this summer and has ‘rejected Conte and Tottenham’. Conte was in charge at Inter when the Italian giants won the Scudetto during Lukaku’s final season in Milan.
Bergomi also claimed that, despite Lukaku’s miserable season at Stamford Bridge, the Blues would still demand a huge €20m (£17m) loan fee to allow the former Inter man to leave the club this summer.
