Romelu Lukaku strikes Inter transfer roadblock as two special conditions block dream Chelsea exit

Romelu Lukaku has been handed a major blow to his efforts in securing a move back to Inter Milan this summer, with the Italian giants up against an ongoing battle in the boardroom. He has been heavily linked with a move away from Chelsea this season, though the finances seem to be denying Simone Inzaghi’s chances of signing the striker.

The 28-year-old has reportedly agreed upon a salary with the Italian giants ahead of a potential loan return to the Serie A this summer as the Blues issue a short deadline to the Belgian’s agent to get the deal wrapped up. football.london understand that the Belgium international has asked his lawyer to check the possibility of a possible return to the San Siro, less than 12 months after making the move from Milan to London.

However, according to Calciomercato, Inter must first solve the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal, who each have a year left on their current deals with the Nerazzurri. The Chilean duo are among the highest earners at the club and the Italian giants may be reduced to terminating these deals by mutual consent rather than making any profit on a sale

Sanchez, who will likely demand a farewell fee if his deal is terminated, has reportedly already rejected several moves away from Inter ahead of the summer, throwing a spanner in the works. All in all, a deal for Lukaku on loan can not be completed until this issue is resolved.
