After just one season back at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea's record signing Romelu Lukaku now has one foot out the club's exit door.
Serie A giants Inter Milan have reached an agreement with the Blues over a loan move for the Belgium international following the player's underwhelming return to England, per Sky Sports in Italy.

The deal is said to be for just one season, with no option or obligation to buy the centre-forward on a permanent transfer.
It is further reported that the temporary switch will see the Nerazzurri pay the English outfit an €8 million (R134 million) loan fee, plus €4 million (R67 million) in add-ons, a far cry from the €113 million (R1.8 billion) the Italians sold him for in August 2021, according to Transfermarkt.
The add-ons are related to team performances, while the 29-year-old will pocket a reported salary of €8 million (R134 million) during his stay at the San Siro, which is about a third less than what he earns in London.
Lukaku's transfer to Chelsea in August 2021 is now considered one of the worst in Premier League history given the large fee paid.
Following the marksman's much-anticipated return to the two-time UEFA Champions League winners, things started going wrong when he did an interview with Sky Sport Italia openly admitting his desire to return to Inter just three months into his second spell at Chelsea.
The striker also said in that interview that he was not happy about how he was utilised tactically, and this seemingly resulted in a fallout with manager Thomas Tuchel, with the player featuring irregularly for the rest of the campaign, many times as a substitute.
Lukaku played 44 times across all competitions in 2021/22, and contributed with just 15 goals and two assists.
