Struggling Chelsea forward, Romelu Lukaku has stated that he wanted to remain at Internazionale, instead of returning to his former side, Chelsea.
The big Belgian first played for the Stamford Bridge side before he was sold to Everton by Jose Mourinho where he shone, after which he got another move to an English side, this time, Manchester United.
However, at Old Trafford, he failed to get things going and was soon shipped off to Italy, where he helped Inter Milan win their first Serie A title in 11 years. There, Antonio Conte played to the striker’s strengths.
This resulted in a high goal return for Lukaku as he scored 64 goals in 95 games across his two-year spell at Inter. However, things went down hill for the San Siro side financially, making them part ways with title winning coach, Antonio Conte and later, Lukaku.
Only Inter’s unwillingness to give the striker his desired contract, made him consider a return to Chelsea, who were on hand with the £97m the Italians wanted for him.
But in a recent interview with Sky Italia, the 28-year-old was asked about his experience so far, since his return and how he felt after he left Inter.
“I hope from the bottom of my heart that I can one day go back to Inter, not right at the end of my career but when I’m still at a good level so we can hopefully win more [trophies].”
“I’m not happy with the situation and that’s only natural. The head coach (Tuchel) has decided to play a different system and I mustn’t let up, I need to keep working hard and be professional,” he said.
“I’m not happy with the situation but I’m a grafter and I mustn’t let up.”
