Chelsea are demanding a £20m loan fee for Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan with the star giving up staying at Stamford Bridge

CHELSEA are reportedly demanding a £20million loan fee to allow Romelu Lukaku to leave with Inter Milan favorites to sign the striker.

The 29-year-old Belgian has had a difficult season and is keen to return to Inter, where he won the Scudetto last year.

Inter are also looking to reunite with Lukaku but the finances involved cast doubt on a deal.

The Italian giants can’t afford to sign him permanently, although Lukaku is willing to take a pay cut.

That means a loan is the more realistic option as Inter are willing to pay a fee – but £20m is above what they can afford, according to the Daily Mail.

Lukaku understands he may have to remain at Stamford Bridge as a result, but is believed to accept that fate.

But it’s not the striker’s preference and Thomas Tuchel probably doesn’t want it either.

The German is said to have met with new owner Todd Boehly this week to discuss transfer strategy with Chelsea, who need new defenders.

It’s also possible that Tuchel could improve his attack with Everton star Richarlison linked with a £65million move.

The Blues are also said to be keen on Inter striker Lautaro Martinez, who could be swapped for Lukaku – but it remains to be seen if the Argentine is ready to join Chelsea.

As for defenders, Chelsea have also asked about another Inter star – centre-back Milan Skriniar who has been linked with Tottenham.

RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol is also of interest after impressing in the Bundesliga this year.

But Sevilla’s Jules Kounde and Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt remain their top priorities and Boehly may have to spend big to sign the pair.
