Romelu Lukaku wants to leave Chelsea after just one season and return to Inter Milan. Thomas Tuchel would like to replace him with Robert Lewandowski.
If Lukaku goes, Tuchel wants Lewy: Chelsea’s head coach Thomas Tuchel would like to replace Romelu Lukaku (29) with Robert Lewandowski from FC Bayern, reports “ESPN”. However, there are significant contractual obstacles. While Lukaku would like to return to Inter Milan, the 34-year-old Pole actually wants to join FC Barcelona. The financial bottlenecks of the Catalans and the negative attitude of Bayern are delaying an agreement.
Short, compact, clear
Search for replacement striker: Tuchel has long been an admirer of Lewandowski and believes the Pole would be comfortable in the Premier League. The “Blues” are looking for a striker but have been unable to get into a transfer deal for a long time due to the British government’s sanctions against former owner Roman Abramovich. So Chelsea couldn’t compete for Erling Haaland either.
Inter-return of Lukaku shaky: Inter is also short on cash at the moment and would therefore prefer a loan deal with Lukaku. However, the “Blues” want to get most of the record transfer fee of 113 million euros paid a year ago back.
