The Chief Executive Officer Giuseppe Marotta of Inter Milan has confirmed the Serie A side will not sign Romelu Lukaku after his loan expires at the end of the season.
The forward moved to Italy earlier last year on a short-term deal after failing to live up to expectations following his return to London from Inter.
Lukaku had a flourishing season with Inter during the 2020/21 season, as he helped them win the Scudetto under Antonio Conte.
His season convinced Chelsea to buy him back but things have not gone too well for the player forcing Chelsea to send him on loan to Inter.
“The loan was for one season so on June 30 regardless of how well he plays, he’ll go back to Chelsea,” Marotta told Sky Italia.
“This has been an unprecedented season. I’m referring of course to the World Cup. The problems we’ve experienced have been experienced by other clubs too and the players who played at the World Cup.
“Lukaku is a case in point. [Marcelo] Brozovic isn’t the Brozovic we know. Lukaku hasn’t found the fitness he needs to play his best football.
“He’s still not at his best or the player we got to see in years gone by.’Lukaku is a case in point. [Marcelo] Brozovic isn’t the Brozovic we know. Lukaku hasn’t found the fitness he needs to play his best football.
Lukaku has only netted three times in the league this season with just two in the UEFA Champions League with Inter qualifying for the last eight.
