Todd Boehly will meet with Inter Milan to talk about Romelu Lukaku’s future
After the Champions League final, Chelsea owner Todd Boehly will meet with Inter Milan to talk about Romelu Lukaku’s future.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Express), Boehly and company are prepared to meet with the Italian powerhouses as soon as possible to discuss Lukaku’s situation. The Belgian striker is presently getting ready for the Champions League final on June 10 in Istanbul versus Manchester City. Mauricio Pochettino, the next manager, is likely to give the striker another shot at Stamford Bridge despite his pleasure at Inter. Lukaku is now in fantastic shape and is finishing the season strong.
At the same time, Chelsea has had a terrible season, with a competent striker being the main contributor. They haven’t scored any goals, which has cost us dearly and kept us stuck in the middle of the league. However, the Blues are open to giving Inter a permanent transfer of the striker. But it’s improbable that the Serie A powerhouses will meet Lukaku’s £60 million demand. It is unclear if another loan spell is in the works.
Victor Osimhen, on the other hand, is the ideal number nine for Chelsea, who are anxious to add a top striker for the upcoming campaign. Selling Lukaku for top cash will help us get the money we need to hire the Nigerian, who would be a great addition. Given that Lukaku seems content at Inter, it would seem risky to bring him back. Bringing in a player who won’t like playing for Chelsea doesn’t make much sense.
Mauricio Pochettino has ambitions for him, but he hasn’t yet had much of an impact since moving to the Premier League. He excelled while playing for West Brom and Everton, but he underwhelmed while playing for Manchester United and Chelsea twice. Therefore, it will be a wise choice to permanently sell the 29-year-old rather than keep him because it will assist balance our wages, even if the price is slightly lower.
