According to multiple reports, Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku has informed his team that he wants to go back to Chelsea FC, and it appears the move will be finalized very quickly. Don’t be surprised if the transfer gets officially announced sometime this weekend.

Typically, whenever the player himself has decided on a transfer, it’s only a matter of time until the two clubs involved hammer out the details.  Lukaku wants to go back to the club that is in his heart, because that’s where he first cut his teeth. Journalists Fabrizio Romano and Adam Newson have more below:

Inter had been adamant about holding on to Big Rom this summer, and they put a hefty price on the big Belgian. However, things have escalated quickly in the past 48-72 hours, and it looks like Chelsea will get the new center forward they have been seeking all summer long.

Once they realized that Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland wasn’t coming, they quickly moved on to a familiar face, one who left the club in 2014.

According to Sports Illustrated (via the Standard), the reigning Serie A champions will accept a bid of “between £100 and £110 million for Lukaku,” and the striker will sign “a five-year contract at the club, as per the report, worth in the region of £212,000-a-week.”
