The Daily Mail reports that the Belgian was emotional when his lawyer Sebastian Ledure informed him that a deal had been agreed on.

The report further states that Lukaku took a 35% pay cut to seal the move

He was expected to be the missing piece of Thomas Tuchel's attack. He started brightly with Premier League games against Arsenal and Aston Villa but fizzled out as the season progressed.

His place in the Chelsea team was continuously under threat, with prodigy Kai Havertz filling the position. He then gave an unauthorised interview where he appeared to blame Tuchel's tactics and spoke of his desire to head back to Inter Milan.

BBC Sports reports that the loan fee will be around 8 million euros. Inter Milan's President Steven Zhang personally joined the negotiations on Monday to strike the deal.

New Chelsea owner is understood to have been of the idea that a Lukaku exit was better for all the parties. Lukaku now heads back to a club where he enjoyed massive success after guiding them to the Seria A title.
