Even La Gazzetta dello Sport claimed that the deal had already been done. For now, we are still waiting for an official announcement from Milan. Beppe Marotta among CEOs tempered expectations. And it sounded like yesterday: “We won’t announce Lukaku today.” “We are trying to form a competitive team within what is possible. We want to do everything we can. It is realistic, but there are still some obstacles. We will see how it goes.”

It is possible that those “hurdles” – read: the financial gap between Chelsea and Inter – are over today. The water becomes shallow during the day. Where Chelsea paid 115 million for Lukaku last summer, they were now originally aiming for a rent of 15-20 million. Inter hope to be able to pay half of that. After some round-trip table tennis, the Italians increased this amount to 7 million euros, plus bonuses.

If Chelsea also make a concession, the Red Devil will return to Italy after a grueling year. Chelsea have already stated that they will continue to pay a percentage of his salary during the lease term, although Lukaku will have to hand over part of the €12m a year at financially limited Inter. After all, they are still trying to impress Paulo Dybala, whose contract with Juventus is expiring. “They are both on our list, Lukaku and Dybala. We are now in talks and would be happy if they signed. But if not, we will keep looking. It’s not about the individuals, it’s about the group.”
