Romelu Lukaku has completed his loan move back to Inter Milan from Chelsea, the Premier League club have confirmed.
The Belgium striker will spend the 2022-23 campaign with Inter, the club he left to re-join Chelsea in a £97.5million deal last summer.
The 29-year-old endured an underwhelming 2021-22 season at Stamford Bridge, although he still finished at the Blues’ top scorer with 15 goals.
