Amid the reported interest from Chelsea, Inter Milan have put a hefty price tag on superstar striker Romelu Lukaku, according to Corriere dello Sport.
The Telegraph reported last week that Lukaku was an option for Chelsea in their summer hunt for a new striker, with the acquisition of Erling Haaland appearing financially difficult to achieve.
Lukaku was a spring chicken on his first stint at Stamford Bridge, with the Belgian now a world-class center-forward in his own right. Thomas Tuchel would be lucky to have it.
Unfortunately for the Blues, if they were hoping to use Lukaku as a more financially plausible alternative to Haaland, they would have to adjust their expectations.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Inter will ask for € 120m to allow Lukaku to leave this summer, with the club facing losses of around € 140m.
The report suggests Antonio Conte’s men could be forced into a sale, with the financial climate unfavorable, but they are not ready to lose it on the cheap.
Roman Abramovich will have to dust off his checkbook if he wants to see it pass.
