Why Inter losing Conte is a boost to Chelsea Lukaku hopes
Antonio Conte‘s exit from Inter could just be the start of a series of departure from the newly crowned Italian champions.
Should that prove to be the case, then a number of star names could be on their way out of San Siro before the start of the next campaign.
Lukaku to Chelsea?
The German arrived in a £45million deal from RB Leipzig last summer but only managed six Premier League goals – a return that is far from good enough for a team chasing titles.
A reduced fee of around £70m could be too enticing a deal to turn down for the 28-year-old, who would surely be keen to finally prove he can cut it at a top Premier League club.
Lukaku struggled for chances at Chelsea before impressing during loan stints at West Brom and Everton, and kept up his prolific form once the latter move was made permanent.
However, a subsequent switch to Manchester United was deemed a failure despite returning 42 goals in 96 outings.
A return to Chelsea would offer Lukaku the opportunity to finally silence his doubters, and lead Chelsea’s renewed bid for top honours under Tuchel.
