‘I want out!’ – Lukaku tells Inter amid Chelsea interest

Chelsea target Romelu Lukaku has told Italian giants Inter Milan he wants to leave the club.

This comes days after European champions Chelsea had an initial bid of £85m (100m euros) for the Belgium international rejected by the Serie A champions.

Inter were confident of keeping hold of Lukaku given his previous comments about being happy to stay.

However, it is understood the 28-year-old has had second thoughts and is now keen to return to Chelsea, where he plied his trade from 2011-2014.

Inter’s difficult financial situation leaves them vulnerable and given Lukaku’s preference to sign for Chelsea, a sale appears inevitable.

The focus will now be on whether the Blues are willing to increase their opening offer to land the big Belgian striker this summer.

It is understood Chelsea were prepared to include Spanish defender Marcos Alonso as part of the first bid.

Lukaku first played for the Blues between 2011 and 2014, making 15 appearances, but was sold to Everton after an impressive season on loan.

He came close to rejoining the club in 2017 but instead moved to Premier League rivals Manchester United for £75m.

The Belgian then made the switch to Italy’s Serie A in 2019, joining Inter for a club record fee of 80m euros (£74m) on a five-year deal.
