Belgium international soccer player Romelu Lukaku is about to return to Italian first division club Inter Milan.
A video was published online by several Italian sports media, showing the 29-year-old coming out of the VIP area at Milan’s Linate Airport. He was “extremely satisfied,” said Lukaku, and put on a Nerazzurri scarf for the photographers present. According to reports, Lukaku had the usual medical check-up at Inter.
There have long been rumors that the previous striker will return from London’s Premier League club FC Chelsea – trained by German coach Thomas Tuchel. Lukaku would return to his previous employers Inter after just one season in England. The reason is believed to be that he was no longer satisfied with the Blues after injury breaks and internal squabbling. Lukaku won the Serie A championship by a clear margin with Inter in the 2020/21 season under the then coach Antonio Conte – now coach of Tottenham Hotspur.
Inter is now coached by Lazio-Rome veteran Simone Inzaghi, for whom the renewed commitment of Lukaku would mean a significant reinforcement of his team. Last season his team had to admit defeat in the championship race against city rivals AC Milan for the Swedish oldie Zlatan Ibrahimovic and ended up two points behind in second place.
