Chelsea star Romelu Lukaku's loan transfer confirmed by Inter Milan chief Giuseppe Marotta after agreeing £6.9m fee | The Sun

INTER MILAN CEO Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed Romelu Lukaku's return to Inter Milan following his Stamford Bridge nightmare.

Chelsea have agreed a one-year loan with the Serie A side worth just under £7million.

And Marotta, 65, is "happy to bring Lukaku home" less than a year after the striker was sold to the Blues for a mammoth £97.5m.

The Inter chief revealed Lukaku's loan move is set to be confirmed in the coming days.

Marotta said, via Goal: "We have to thank the availability of the presidency and the owners.

"I hope it can be closed, not in a few hours, but a few days."

He added: "We cannot make it official yet. He is a returning player who has done very well with us and we are happy to bring him home."

Lukaku hit just eight Premier League goals in his first season back at Stamford Bridge and was often left on the bench by boss Thomas Tuchel.

In an explosive interview with Italian TV back in December the 29-year-old hit out at Tuchel's tactics, and admitted he would like to return to Inter one day.

Now his return is on the verge of completion.
