Lukaku to Inter loan ‘DONE’, Chelsea ready to make £50m Richarlison bid, Raheem Sterling update – transfer latest

CHELSEA are on the verge of allowing Romelu Lukaku to return to Inter Milan on loan for the 2022/23 season.

Therefore, the Blues will need forward reinforcements, and are reportedly willing to make a £50million bid for Everton forward Richarlison.

The Blues will also step up their pursuit of Raheem Sterling once Romelu Lukaku has been loaned to Inter Milan.

The Blues’ original offer of £35m is not believed to be sufficient to force Man City’s hand, as Pep Guardiola looks for a fee above £50m.

£45m is said to be a realistic sum if the two clubs decide to meet in the middle.

Meanwhile Marina Granovskaia is set to leave Chelsea FC this summer as the London club continue their massive structural shake-up.

The former chief assistant to Roman Abramovich will vacate her position, with Todd Boehly to take care of transfer negotiations.

  • Sterling ‘asks about Chelsea’

    Manchester City star Raheem Sterling has reportedly been making enquiries about Chelsea ahead of a £45million move.

    Sterling has contacted two people to get a lay of the land in West London, according to The Athletic.

    And the forward was keen to find out what Blues manager Thomas Tuchel is like to work with.

    The England international was also interested in what it’s like to play for Chelsea, it was added

  • Chelsea target Richarlison

    Chelsea could steal a march on Arsenal and Tottenham with a £50million bid for Everton star Richarlison.

    According to the Daily Mail, the Blues are keen on the striker as well as Manchester City’s England attacker Raheem Sterling.

    New owner Todd Boehly is reportedly happy to spend big in this summer transfer window.

    And the Brazil international’s value soared with six goals in the last nine games of the Premier League season to help the Toffees stay up.

    The Gunners , Spurs and Newcastle are among the other clubs linked with the 25-year-old as well

  • Romelu Lukaku transfer reminder

    Chelsea have agreed to send club-record signing Romelu Lukaku back to Inter Milan on a one-year loan costing just £7million, according to SunSport’s Tom Barclay.

    Lukaku, who joined the Blues from Inter for a whopping £97.5million only 10 months ago, will also take a hefty wage cut to seal the deal.

    The two clubs came to an agreement on Tuesday in a move that includes add-ons and will see the West Londoners pay none of the striker’s wages this season.

    The Belgium international never seemed completely sold on a move back to Chelsea, whom he initially joined as a teenager in 2011, yet eventually made the switch in August.

    The 29-year-old had issues with injuries as well as COVID-19 and struggled to fit into Thomas Tuchel’s system.

    Lukaku did nothing to endear himself to Tuchel with a bombshell interview in December where he revealed he was “not happy” at the club and wished to return to Inter “in the near future”

  • Morning, Chelsea fans

    Romelu Lukaku is on the brink of returning to Inter Milan – with Richarlison joining Raheem Sterling as a possible replacement up front.

    Inter have ‘reached an agreement in principle’ to borrow Lukaku for next season.

    The Italian giants will reportedly pay a £6.9million loan fee plus add-ons for the Belgium superstar, 29.

    It comes amid claims Chelsea have moved ahead of Tottenham in the £50m hunt for Everton frontman Richarlison.

    But Manchester City’s Sterling is still regarded as the priority strike target for Stamford Bridge chief Thomas Tuchel.

    As for central defence, it’s claimed the Blues are clear favourites to sign Sevilla’s Jules Kounde – because Barcelona can’t afford him.

    But it’s understood Italy star Alessandro Bastoni wants to snub Chelsea and Spurs to stay at Inter Milan.

    Tuchel, of course, has a huge gap to plug in his backline after last season’s inspiration Antonio Rudiger joined Real Madrid.

    Finally, Southampton have won the race for Armel Bella-Kotchap despite the VfL Bochum defender being linked with Chelsea, Tottenham and City.

  • Blues agree Romelu return to Inter

    Chelsea have agreed to send club-record signing Romelu Lukaku back to Inter Milan on a one-year loan costing just £7million, writes TOM BARCLAY.

    Belgian striker Lukaku, who joined the Blues from Inter for a whopping £97.5million only ten months ago, will also take a hefty wage cut to seal the deal.

    The two clubs came to an agreement last night (TUES) in a move that includes add-ons and will see Chelsea pay none of the forward’s wages this season.

    But it does little to hide the fact that Lukaku’s move to Stamford Bridge last summer will go down as one of the costliest in Premier League history.

    The former Manchester United hitman, 29, had a stellar campaign at Inter the season before last as he won Serie A under Antonio Conte.

    He never seemed completely sold on a move back to Chelsea, whom he initially joined as a teenager in 2011, yet eventually made the switch in August.

    Lukaku had issues with injuries and Covid and struggled to fit into Thomas Tuchel’s system.

    He did nothing to endear himself to the German coach with a bombshell interview in December where the striker revealed he was “not happy” at the club and wished to return to Inter “in the near future”.

  • Alessandro set to stay at Inter

    Chelsea and Tottenham target Alessandro Bastoni plans to stay at Inter Milan.

    The Italy centre-back, 23, has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League this summer.

    The Blues want him to help plug the gap left by Real Madrid newboy Antonio Rudiger. Spurs boss and former Inter gaffer Antonio Conte is also after reinforcements in his backline.

    And both English clubs will have been heartened by Inter chief executive Giuseppe Marotta indicating this week they are ready to sell a defender to help balance their books.

    He told Radio Rai: “It’s certainly easier to replace a centre-back than a striker.

    “We will probably be forced to sell someone in that position.”

  • Arsenal keen on Morata

    Ex-Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is said to be in Arsenal’s sights.

    Atletico Madrid’s Spain ace, 29, has just enjoyed two reasonably successful seasons on loan with Juventus.

    Fabio Vieira and Marquinhos have already joined the Gunners this summer.

    And Caught Offside claims Arsenal have even made a bid for the former Real Madrid targetman Morata.

  • Maatsen on Feyenoord shortlist

    Feyenoord have reportedly agreed a deal for Chelsea left-back Ian Maatsen.

    The Holland Under-21 star is set to depart Stamford Bridge again this summer after loans with Charlton and Coventry.

    But Voetbal International say the 20-year-old is just one option being considered by the Dutch giants as they prepare to sell Holland international Tyrell Malacia.

    Other options beside Maatsen include Bayer Leverkusen’s Daley Sinkgraven and Twente ace Joshua Brenet.

  • Saints beat Blues to Armel

    Southampton have won the race for Armel Bella-Kotchap despite the VfL Bochum defender being linked with Tottenham, Chelsea, and Manchester City.

    The 20-year-old German has reportedly signed a four-year deal with the Saints.

    The Under-21 international helped Bochum into the Bundesliga two seasons ago before making 26 top-flight appearances last term.

  • Inter ‘reach Lukaku agreement’

    Romelu Lukaku’s loan back to Inter Milan moved a huge step closer with reports they’ve reached an agreement in principle with Chelsea.

    The striker, 29, seems sure to return to the San Siro for 2022-23.

    According to The Athletic, a deal is almost done following negotiations between the two clubs. The terms agreed will see Inter pay a £6.9million loan fee plus add-ons.

    And they have also sorted out how Lukaku’s £325,000-a-week wages and personal bonuses will be paid.

    However, there is understood to be no option or obligation to buy him in the contract.

    New Chelsea owner Todd Boehley’s relationship with Michael Yormack, president of Roc Nation who represent Lukaku – played a pivotal part in the switch.

    The report adds the Belgian forward is due to undergo a medical next week. And assuming all goes to plan, their former star will complete his return to Inter just a year after his £97.5m record transfer back to Stamford Bridge.

    That deal saw Lukaku pen a five-year contract in West London until 2026, meaning he will still have three years left to run on the deal when the loan finishes.

  • Blues favourites to grab Jules

    Chelsea have reportedly been given a free run at signing France centre-back Jules Kounde.

    That’s because Barcelona are unable to meet Sevilla’s £65million asking price.

    The LaLiga giants are already set to snap up Andreas Christensen on a free transfer from Chelsea.

    But Marca claims Xavi Hernandez is also keen on signing Kounde to create a new defensive partnership.

    The Frenchman has become one of Europe’s top centre-backs after some fine performances for club and country.

    And Sevilla feel Kounde should be selling for around £65m this summer.

  • Alessandro set to stay at Inter

    Chelsea and Tottenham target Alessandro Bastoni plans to stay at Inter Milan.

    “We will probably be forced to sell someone in that position.”

    But those hopes appear to have been dashed with an update from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. He quoted Bastoni’s agent Tullio Tinti in a tweet.

    It said: “Bastoni will stay at Inter next season as we are used to respecting contracts.”
