Chelsea Boss Gives Final Answer To Rumors Of Lukaku’s Potential Return To Inter Milan

The international break has finally ended and during the break, there were a couple of reports from Italian media over Romelu Lukaku wanting to move back to Inter Milan next summer.

Asked to comment on these rumors, Thomas Tuchel gave the perfect answer: “We don’t reflect on it. The situation at the moment is that we cannot talk to players, cannot sell, and cannot buy. In this moment we don’t need to think about it.

“These are the players we have. Romelu still plays a big part. Not the part maybe he wants to play and I totally understand it. He used his time to disconnect a little bit, one week of a holiday then he was back with us.

“I feel him very motivated, very strong in training, very much involved when we do the games. He is a winner and he will stay a winner and stay important with us.”

“He had a good match in Middlesbrough, a huge boost for all of us and for him personally and in the moment there is no space for bad mood and no space for disappointment. There is simply not.

“There are a lot of matches in the decisive weeks of the season. That’s why there is no space now for second thoughts, being distracted or disappointed. We need everybody, every player and that includes Romelu.”

Chelsea spent over €100 million on the Belgian international and while he’s not lived up to expectations so far, it would not be the best call to let him go after only one season unless and until a replacement is lined up.

Hopefully, Lukaku can help Chelsea in the final stretch of the season with some goals.
