Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku could reportedly return to Inter Milan summer but only on a loan deal. As per Italian outlet Corriere Della Sera , the Nerazzurri could bring Lukaku back ahead of the 2022-23 season but it is a 'difficult hypothesis'.

However, the report suggests that the move cannot be 'discarded' as the Belgian doesn't want to stay on at Stamford Bridge. The lone stumbling block is that Inter cannot afford to sign Lukaku on a permanent deal.

Sempre Inter's article based on the Corriere Della Sera report suggests that he earns around €12.5 million in annual wages, which the Serie A outfit cannot afford. However, should Chelsea be open to a loan, they could bring him back to Italy.

The rumors come amid what has been a tumultuous season for Lukaku with the Blues. He has managed just 15 goals in 43 matches across all competitions this term since arriving from Inter for a club-record fee of around €100 million last summer.

The 29-year-old's explosive interview with Sky Sports midway through the season hasn't helped endear him to the Chelsea faithful either. During that conversation, Lukaku indicated his desire to return to Inter while also questioning the tactics of Blues boss Thomas Tuchel.

While the Belgian was touted to be the solution to Chelsea's problems up front, they have instead regressed a little this season. Aside from failing to challenge for the Premier League title once again, they also exited the UEFA Champions League in the quarter-finals after winning the title last year.

The Blues made the finals of the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup but lost on both occasions to Liverpool on penalties. To their credit, though, Tuchel's men did win the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
