The future of Romelu Lukaku continues to raise questions. The Belgian, currently on loan from Chelsea to Inter Milan, is due to return to London on June 30 when his loan ends. Several factors could influence the rest of his career.

Inter Milan and their coach Simone Inzaghi seem to play a crucial role. If the Nerazzurri qualify for the Champions League and manage to win the Italian Cup or reach the Champions League final, the technician should remain in charge of the team in 2024. The Milan club’s budget is also something to consider. Indeed, participation in the C1 would provide additional income.

Simone Inzaghi did not hide her admiration for Romelu Lukaku, praising his professionalism and importance on the pitch. However, the cost of the operation (the call option would be 76 million euros) makes the situation complex. Inter Milan are currently in sixth place in the Serie A table, two points behind fourth place in the Champions League.

The name of the future Blues coach determining?

Negotiations with Chelsea promise to be difficult. Inter Milan would not like to renew the loan on the same conditions. The Italian club would prefer to invest in a player for the long term. A new loan would only be possible on terms that are much more advantageous for Inter.

The choice of Chelsea also seems decisive. The London club must decide if they want to bet on Romelu Lukaku or consider his recruitment a failure. A lot will depend on the new Stamford Bridge manager. Under the direction of Thomas Tuchel, Lukaku struggled to find his place. A similar situation could arise with Julian Nagelsmann, who favors fast play without a top striker.

However, Chelsea seem to be looking to Pochettino. If the former Tottenham coach took over, he could rely on the Belgian to turn the club’s situation around…
