Inter Milan president addresses Romelu Lukaku’s future.
The Belgian striker missed an opportunity to equalise against Man City in the Champions League final on Saturday night.
After struggling in his first season at Chelsea, he joined Inter Milan last summer on a season-long loan.
He struggled with injuries throughout the campaign and managed to score only 14 goals in all competitions.
Chelsea are expected to offload the 30-year-old forward as Mauricio Pochettino refuses to include in his plans next season.
His enormous wages of around £325,000-per-week would be a stumbling block in the summer.
Inter president Steven Zhang admits the club is yet to hold discussions over a permanent transfer for Romelu Lukaku.
‘He [Lukaku] has shown to be a great forward for Inter, he’s an extraordinary guy,’ Zhang said after Inter’s defeat.
‘He’s under contract at Chelsea, so we’ll have to wait and speak with them to understand his situation.
‘There are many positive things to reflect on this season, it needs to be a starting point to continue our growth day after day.
‘Coming here and playing as we did in this final is something that will live long in the memory.’
