The Chief Executive Officer of Inter Milan, Giuseppe Marotta, has taken a dig at Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku for leaving the Seria A champions.
According to Marrotta, Lukaku joined Chelsea in order to double his salary.
He said there was no difference between Lukaku and Edin Dzeko, whom Inter signed for free to replace the Belgium international in the summer transfer window.
Chelsea had re-signed Lukaku from Inter in the summer transfer window for a club-record £97 million.
Lukaku, 28, had opened his debut for Chelsea, scoring a goal against Arsenal and then netted a brace against Aston Villa.
But Lukaku has since failed to find the back of the net in the Premier League.
Speaking to Il Corriere Della Sera, Marotta hit out at Lukaku for leaving Inter Milan for money.
“Lukaku was sold for €115m and we bought Dzeko for free. On the pitch, there is not much difference.
“Lukaku left to double his salary. In Italy, these figures can’t exist.
“Today, we can’t make important investments, I would not be allowed to sign Lukaku for €75m. We need reduced and specific investments.”
