Romelu Lukaku admits he wants to return to Inter


Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has admitted his love for the former club Inter and admitted that he hopes to return to the San Siro before passing his peak.

After seven years away, Lukaku returned to the Blues this summer in a blockbuster transfer worth £ 97.5 million. The Belgian has scored seven goals in 18 appearances so far this season and has struggled at times, although a long hiatus with an ankle injury followed by an attack by Covid-19 has not helped his cause.

The 28-year-old was productive during his time in Milan and developed a devastating partnership with Argentine Lautaro Martinez. He netted 30 times and added ten more when Inter took a first Scudetto in a decade last term. That followed a season with 34 goals in 2019/20.

After first distancing himself from moving to Chelsea last summer and publicly insisting that he was happy and would stay at the San Siro, Lukaku eventually got his head turned and returned to the club he left in 2014.

Speaking to Sky Sports Italy, Lukaku apologized to Nerazzurri for leaving the club and revealed that he wants to return to Inter in the future.

“I think everything that happened was not meant to happen like this. How I left Inter, how I communicated with the fans, this bothers me because it is not the right time now, but even when I left it was not the right time. ” ” he said.

“Now I think it’s right to speak because I have always said that I have Inter in my heart, I will return to play there, I really hope so. I am in love with Italy, this is the right time to talk and let people know what really happened without talking bad about people because I’m not like that. “

He continued: “First I want to say a big apology to the Inter fans because I think the way I left should have been different. I had to talk to you first, because the things you have done for me, for my family, for my mother, for my son, are things that remain for me in life.

“I really hope in the depths of my heart to return to Inter, not at the end of my career, but at a still good level to hopefully win more.”

In the same interview, Lukaku also suggested that he was unhappy with how his first season back at Chelsea had gone so far.
