Inter Milan has set the price of its Belgian striker, Romelu Lukaku, if any club wants to include him this summer, after reports emerged that Chelsea wanted to sign him if the transfer of Erling Haaland failed this summer. And the British newspaper, “The Sun”, revealed that Inter Milan wanted 102.5 million pounds in exchange for dispensing with Romelu Lukaku if Chelsea failed to obtain Haaland’s services.
Inter are set to defend the Serie A title next season but financial difficulties have led to the approval of a player sale this summer so far, with Achraf Hakimi already leaving for Paris Saint-Germain, and Chelsea eager to see Lukaku back at Stamford Bridge.
And, according to the English newspaper, exceeding the 100 million pound figure, is the only thing that will make the Inter Milan management agree to sell Lukaku this summer.
Inter paid Manchester United a record £68m to sign the Belgian in 2019 and have rewarded them with at least 30 goals in both seasons.
Chelsea is looking for a new striker this summer to build a new team capable of winning the Premier League title under the leadership of Thomas Tuchel.
