These are the first steps and new Inter Milan manager Simeone Inzaghi doesn’t want to lose the club’s star player following a brilliant 30-goal season in Italy.
Lukaku enjoys his Serie A life but the club are in financial trouble and he needs to be assured of the club’s leadership if he is to stay. It is understood that Lukaku would be ready to return to the Premier League – and choosing between Premier League champions and Champions League winners is a good place to meet.
Chelsea and City are prioritizing a No.9 this summer and both are also interested in Harry Kane and Erling Haaland, although both situations are more complicated than Lukaku’s.
A return to Chelsea for Lukaku is a real possibility as Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham are likely to leave and the club will start investing on the back of their European success at City. Their focus on Lukaku comes from the fact that they know Tottenham are unlikely to deal with them with Kane and Borussia Dortmund are asking Haaland to give them one more season.
Lukaku was a Chelsea player between 2011-2014 and only made 15 appearances, but Abramovich continued to admire him as a player and – although he usually doesn’t get too personally involved in transfer talks. – he was reportedly involved in talks last week to bring Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea will need to tackle the salary situation as Man City are obviously an attractive option for Lukaku, as Pep Guardiola tries to help the team bounce back from his disappointment at losing 1-0 to Portugal on Saturday night.
It is believed Chelsea will likely have to make him the highest paid player if he arrives.
Tielemans biding his time for a new deal

Tielemans is enjoying life under Brendan Rodgers, but sources say he won’t be rushing to sign a new contract just yet.
He could further boost his profile with a successful tournament and doesn’t want to limit his options at this point.
This is a position that many players will adopt as Euro 2020 approaches. Transfers and contracts are difficult to negotiate in a major tournament, especially for players who know they could attract offers. of the best clubs.
