Inter CEO said last month that Lukaku will be back in London this summer.
On-loan Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has reiterated that he wants to stay at Inter Milan for next season as well.
Lukaku os playing on loan at Inter but it has not been the successful return to the Serie A sid he had hoped for, with just five league goals scored this season as he has battled injury problems.
Inter do not have an option or obligation to make the move a permanent one, and with
Lukaku’s contract at Stamford Bridge will expire in 2026. Inter’s CEO Guiseppi Marotta made it clear last month that the 29-year-old will be back in London this summer.
“The loan was for one season so on June 30 regardless of how well he plays, he’ll go back to Chelsea,” Marotta said.
It remains to be seen what impact the managerial situation at Chelsea has on Lukaku’s future at the club. Mauricio Pochettino is likely to replace Graham Potter, who had opened the door for the Belgian to return.
“I have an excellent relationship with the fans and I’ve always tried to give everything for Inter because it gave me the opportunity to win two years ago,” Lukaku said. “This club has allowed me to become who I am today.”
On whether he wanted to stay at Inter, he aded: “Yes, but guys you have to pay attention to those things. My goal is to give my best for Inter.”
