Chelsea: Romelu Lukaku’s agent dismisses Inter Milan rumours despite surprise at poor form this season

By Marc Mayo

Romelu Lukaku’s agent has dismissed talk of a return to Inter Milan as the striker awaits news on Chelsea’s takeover.

Serie A rivals Inter and AC Milan have emerged as rumoured contenders for Lukaku’s services following a spell out of Thomas Tuchel’s team but Federico Pastorello insists a transfer away from west London is not on his client’s mind.

“Much ado about nothing,” he told La Repubblica when asked about rumours linking the Belgian back to Italy.

“He has the club and the fans in his heart, he has never hidden it, like his love for Anderlecht where he would like to end his career.

“But we cannot think about negotiations. Chelsea are in takeover discussions, we do not know the new owners, let alone if we can open talks with Inter or AC Milan. We have to wait.”

Pastorello admitted his surprise at Lukaku’s poor form but highlighted his position as Chelsea’s top scorer with 15 goals in all competitions.

“For the cost of the transfer, no one could have expected such a situation,” he noted.

“I do not discuss the tactical choices, but it is obvious that there was a problem. The numbers, however, must be considered - he is still the team's best scorer, with less playing time compared to his teammates.

“The situation must be carefully assessed, now there is Champions League qualification to secure, there is the FA Cup final. Romelu is focused on this, we have not talked about anything else.”
