Romelu Lukaku 'reduced to tears' after discovering Chelsea had reached loan transfer agreement with Inter Milan | The Sun

ROMELU LUKAKU was reportedly moved to tears when he found out that Inter Milan had struck a deal with Chelsea to re-sign him on loan.

The striker, 29, is set to return to Italy just one year after joining Chelsea for a huge £97.5million fee.

Things did not work out for him at Stamford Bridge last season.

He scored just eight goals in 26 Premier League appearances and quickly fell out-of-favour with Chelsea fans after revealing that he REGRETTED his move to London in an unauthorised interview.

Lukaku had clearly stated that he would like to leave Chelsea and return to Inter, where he enjoyed a successful spell from 2019 to 2021.

And his wish was finally granted when the two clubs came to an agreement on Tuesday.

The deal will see Inter Milan pay a £7m loan fee for his services.

According to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, Lukaku broke down in tears when his agent told him the news.

The striker was so eager to facilitate a move that he decided to give up one third of his £325,000-a-week wages.

But, Inter have decided not to insert an option or obligation to buy clause as part of the package, so he could be heading back to West London next summer.
