Chelsea flop Romelu Lukaku 'pushing for Inter Milan transfer return but must slash £325k-a-week wages in HALF' to move
ROMELU LUKAKU will have to slash his wages by HALF to return to Inter Milan.
The Chelsea star, 28,declared his desire to rejoin the Serie A giants in December after just four months in West London.
The Belgium international has even reportedly held video calls with Inter's top brass in order to complete his switch back to Italy.
And the Nerazzurri are said to be warming to the idea of granting Lukaku his wish after initially ruling out a swoop for the attacker.
But the bumbling Belgian's pocket will allegedly take a huge hit if he returns to the San Siro.
He became Chelsea's highest earner on £325,000-a-week when completing his record £97.5million transfer to the club.

However, Inter's dire economic situation means they won't be able to offer Lukaku the rich pickings he's used to in West London.
The powerhouse's annual salary of between £10-11million will be whittled down to just £5.5m in order to facilitate his return to the Nerazzurri, according to Football Italia.
And that's slightly less than the £7.4m Lukaku used to rake in annuallyduring his last spell with Inter.

However, money seems to be the least of Lukaku's concerns as reports claim he's willing to receive less to make his dream a reality.
But Inter will still have to stump up the cash to buy Lukaku who signed a five-year contract with the Blues last summer.
The Blues will be keen to recoup the majority of the £97.5m they splashed on the former Everton star in 2021.
Paris Saint-Germain could also offer Lukaku a way out of Stamford Bridge if Inter can't raise the funds.
His agent has held talks with the uber-wealthy Parisians about a possible transfer, reports claim.
