Lukaku has no interest in playing for Pochettino – and coach has no intention of using striker

There are other transfer stories dominating the headline at the moment, but Romelu Lukaku’s potential move back to Inter Milan on loan is rumbling on in the background.

SportWitness run a story which translates a piece in the Gazzetta dello Sport which explains that “great manoeuvres” to get another year of a loan deal sorted “started some time ago”.

Lukaku has made it clear that his time with Chelsea is “closed” and the arrival of a new manager won’t change that. Similarly it’s said that the Argentine is “thinking of other strikers for the creature he is shaping” for the season to come.

If this is true, in a way it’s a positive. It’s better to have all our thinking aligned while there is still a whole summer ahead of us to find a solution. The fact that Lukaku is still keen to go means that he will be very flexible on his end to help make a deal happen. The fact that Pochettino isn’t interested in using him either means that Chelsea too will bend over backwards once again to make a deal happen.

That just leaves Inter – and given Lukaku finished the season strongly and given that the Italian side made it to the Champions League final, they too can probably stretch a little further to get all parties to where they want to be to make a deal happen.
