Just a week ago we were saying that the Romelu Lukaku return to Inter looked almost impossible to engineer – now we’re hearing it could be announced as soon as today.
SempreInter report that the Corriere dello Sport print edition in Italy are saying that the loan return to his former club for Lukaku is all agreed, an astonishing turnaround and the result of what must have been an intense weekend of work from all parties.
Of course, unlike most deals, this one had serious time pressure on it to be completed before the end of June, when there is a deadline for the Italian “growth decree” for Serie A teams. That means they are heavily incentivised to complete their expensive moves now, but even given that, this has been a lightning quick transaction considering the size of the sums involved.
We doubt it’s announced today, but it now looks like it could happen this week. Hats off to all involved for making it happen.
