Chelsea have reportedly reached an agreement that Romelu Lukaku will return to Inter on a loan deal.

The Belgium international struggled in his debut season at Stamford Bridge following his £97.5million move from Inter.

Lukaku scored 15 goals in 44 games for Chelsea last season and angered the club in December with his interview with Italian media in which he admitted he was unhappy with his situation under Thomas Tuchel.

The 29-year-old also made it clear that he would like to return to Inter and the striker has now made his wish come true.

According to The Athletic, Chelsea and Inter have agreed a €8m loan fee plus surcharges to pave the way for Lukaku’s return to San Siro.

Lukaku is also understood to have agreed to a pay cut to protect his credit.

Lukaku will undergo surgery next week ahead of his move back to Serie A.

In December, Lukaku told Sky Sports Italy: “I really hope from the bottom of my heart to return to Inter, not at the end of my career but at a still good level to hopefully win more.”

Before joining Chelsea, Lukaku played a key role in helping Inter secure the Serie A title under Antonio Conte.

Thomas Tuchel, meanwhile, was hoping to keep Lukaku but the striker was keen to return to Italy.
