The first is a significant reduction in salaries ... The situation around Chelsea is changing from hour to hour. The sanctions under which Roman Abramovich was placed will severely affect the club, and most of all, there is every chance, on the composition of the team.
It is not enough to say that the players are worried about their fate, their reactions are much more like serious panic, and the media on the Island report that the biggest stars of Blues are having talks with lawyers and representatives, examining the possibilities of terminating contracts and moving to other areas.
One of those players who should not have a problem finding a new breakthrough if there is a split with Chelsea is Romelu Lukaku (28). Gazeta delo Sport writes in today's edition that Inter is seriously considering returning the Belgian to its ranks and that they are preparing the ground for any eventuality.
The paper states that the craze for Lukaku will be great and that Inter would not be able to compete with the richest clubs due to financial limitations, and that is why it must act first of all. Practically to secure some kind of Lukaku's consent to return even before we get around Chelsea.
Let us remind you, Romelu Lukaku spoke not so long ago about how dissatisfied he is in London, that is, that he made the mistake of leaving Giuseppe Meazza.
Romelu Lukaku's Contract
From that moment on, his relations with Thomas Tuchel were very strained, his performance on the field was thin, so speculations about his departure were ubiquitous, even before all the problems that befell the current European champion.
Few believe that the first team players of Blues could be left without a contract, which is why Gazeta is dealing with more realistic options. And one of them could be for Chelsea to agree to lend a strong striker to Inter before the final purchase.
Another very important condition for a great return would be Lukaku's "act of goodwill" and the agreement to play for a significantly lower salary than at Stamford Bridge. The Belgian is currently receiving 12,500,000 euros net, while Inter would be ready to offer him a maximum of 7,500,000 euros (possibly with bonuses) and only after getting rid of Alexis Sanchez.
Antonio Conte also showed his desire to have Lukaku in his ranks again, but after Harry Kane's statements about how nice he is at Tottenham and that he does not plan to go, it is hard to believe that the Italian will go for the former player. Inter is on the move.
