No interest in part-exchange

Chelsea and Inter Milan were set for crunch talks today (Friday) regarding the transfer of Romelu Lukaku, and it sounds like we might be ready to agree on a deal valued at €115m (£98m) as a result of them.

This is apparently still not a “formalized” offer, but surely that’s just a matter of time at this point. Other than a brief wobble from Inter leadership, this looks like a done deal, right Matt Law? Lukaku did train with Inter today still.

The word about €115m being on table comes from Gianluca Di Marzio, who adds that Inter remain entirely uninterested in doing anything other than a straight-cash deal, and have reportedly rejected ideas from Chelsea to include the likes of Marcos Alonso, Emerson, Tammy Abraham, or, most recently, Davide Zappacosta.

Abraham could yet get involved tangentially though, if he ends up going to Atalanta to replace Duván Zapata, who’s the primary target for Inter to replace Lukaku — that’s assuming Inter don’t self-destruct in the process, which is apparently one doomsday scenario making its rounds in Nerazzurri circles.
