The second round of negotiations between Chelsea and Inter Milan over a potential loan deal for Romelu Lukaku reportedly took place on Sunday.

As per the Telegraph, the deal is on the verge of completion after Chelsea presented a final proposal that Inter apparently have found agreeable.

According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, that proposal is for a €10m loan fee, plus bonuses, and no player-exchange.

Presumably it’s just a one-year loan straight up, with Inter picking up the wage bill, or at least the vast majority of it.

Both sources agree that the deal is not yet official, but it sounds like Inter just need a sign-off from their owners and this can become a reality.

Lukaku re-signed for Chelsea last summer for a whopping £97.5m but has been a huge disappointment for Thomas Tuchel’s side.

Lukaku followed up a 24 league goal season at Inter in 2020/21 with a measly eight goals for Chelsea the following campaign.
