ROMELU LUKAU has reportedly agreed a sensational return to Inter Milan less than a year after re-joining Chelsea.
The west Londoners forked out a club-record fee of £97.5million to bring the Belgium international back to Stamford Bridge last summer.

Lukaku, however, has found himself on the outskirts of Thomas Tuchel’s starting XI due to his poor form.
And according to Gazzetta dello Sport, the striker is on the brink of sealing a return to the San Siro.
They claim the Serie A giants have reached an agreement to pay Lukaku’s £6.39million wages in a loan deal.
Lukaku, 28, is said to have 15 days to convince Chelsea’s lawyers to accept the proposal.
The former Everton and West Brom hitman revealed earlier this season that he didn’t want to leave Inter.
He said: “If there had been the offer of a new contract from Inter last summer as I wanted, we would not be doing this interview now here from London, but quietly from Milan.
“In that case, I would have stayed at Inter 100 per cent last summer. No need to discuss that.
“I’m always thinking about Milano, Milano, Milano. Inter fans are the best in the world.
“I love the city and the best moment of my career was at Inter.
“I am in love with Italy – I have Inter in my heart.”
He later added: “I miss Lautaro Martinez, I could die on the pitch for him since day one I met him.
“Lautaro Martinez coming here with me at Chelsea in the future?
“No, Lautaro, you can stay in Milan, I’ll be back there…”
Lukaku had a poor season by his standards, scoring 15 goals in 44 appearances for the Blues.
