He is the most curious player about his post-season move.
The 2022-23 season is coming to an end. Many teams and players are preparing for a new future in the summer transfer market. Various transfer rumors are constantly pouring in, and a hot summer is predicted.
Among them, Romelu Lukaku (30, Inter Milan) is one of the players who are curious about the future. The already complicated situation has become more complicated with the recent uptrend.
Lukaku led Inter Milan to win Serie A in the 2020-21 season. He scored 24 goals and 10 assists in 36 league appearances. He had the best season ever, winning the Serie A MVP.
Chelsea, the ‘parent’, reached out to the tremendous performance. This is the team that Lukaku has been with for 3 years since 2011. However, he failed to catch the starting lineup and went on loan to West Bromwich Albion and Everton for one year each.
Since then, he has grown through Everton and Inter Milan. Eventually, in 2021, he returned to Chelsea with a transfer fee of 97.5 million pounds (162.5 billion won).
A bright future was expected, but it was not easy. Coach Thomas Tuchel did not actively employ Lukaku. gradually slipped away from the main
In response, Lukaku complained in an interview with ‘Sky Italia’ in December 2021. “I’m not happy at Chelsea” was the explosive remark that touched Chelsea’s planting. It made the fans and board members turn their backs. It became a ‘troubleshooter’ and continued to be an uncomfortable companion until the end of last season. Eventually, after the season, he left for Inter Milan on a one-year lease.
Lukaku enjoyed the joy of escaping from Chelsea through social media. He even posted a post sniping at coach Tuchel.
However, he suffered from frequent injuries at the beginning of the season. He brushed off his injuries, but the aftermath was great. By April, he had only scored 3 league goals. Inter Milan looked like they wanted to end their partnership. If Inter doesn’t catch on, Lukaku will return to Chelsea at the end of the season.
Chelsea also has no intention of joining a player who has become alienated from the team and has fallen into a slump. In April, the Italian media ‘Calcho Mercatoweb’ reported that “Chelsea is pursuing a swap deal with cash on Lukaku to fully sign Joao Felix, who is on loan.” Various methods were sought to dispose of the ‘troublesome’.
But there was an air of change. Mauricio Pochettino’s appointment at Chelsea is imminent. According to a number of local media, it is known that there is a possibility that Pochettino will use Lukaku midway.
resurrected at the same time. He has scored 5 goals and 4 assists in his last 8 official matches. On the 17th, in the second leg of the European Football Federation Champions League (UCL) semifinals, he assisted Lautaro Martinez’s valuable winning goal. Inter Milan defeated AC Milan and reached the UCL final for the first time in 13 years. 안전놀이터
If his performance continues, there is a chance Inter Milan will catch on. The player himself has already consistently hoped to stay. Of course, his final option is at Chelsea. He can forget his past and make a fresh start with manager Pochettino. Inter Milan may be allowed to stay. Alternatively, the sale could be carried out after returning to Chelsea.
