Chelsea and Inter Milan have reached an agreement over a loan move for the club record signing Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian will undergo his medical next week before finalizing a move. An agreement was reached by both clubs with a £10.3m agreement reached between the clubs. Lukaku agreed on a 30 percent pay cut with his earnings set to drop from £10m per year after tax to £7m per year after several rounds of negotiation.

“Since Lukaku’s return to Inter is very likely, a few things need to be made clear,” Inter Milan ultras said in a statement after the signing of Romelu Lukaku. “Curva Nord supports Inter Milan and will not stage any protest against the player (despite his behavior last summer). That being said, nobody shall go and welcome him with scarves and banners representing the Curva or its groups. He will need to earn everything that, in case, will be done for him in the future with humility and sweat on the pitch.”

“He was supported (and treated) as a king, now he’s just a player like many others. It shall also be clear to everyone that we will never cheer against Lukaku if he will wear the Inter jersey again. We encourage all Interisti [Inter fans] anyway not to fall in the other trap, to run and drool after him,” the statement added. “Clearly there is an instinctive and emotional element, but to pretend that nothing has happened would only accelerate that process aimed at making us all dumb and slavish consumers. We took note of Lukaku’s betrayal and we were extremely disappointed. With time we can even forgive such things to a footballer, but the facts won’t change. Now, Romelu, let’s kick and run.”
