Chelsea football club won the last years UEFA Champions League Trophy after defeating Manchester City in the finals, without having a prolific number 9 (striker) and performed in a top stage.

Chelsea went for Dortmund Norwegian striker Erling Haaland but it was hard for them to reach an agreement, with the management not willing to sell. Same occurso in the case of Polish prolific striker Robert Lewandowski.

With the failures of these transfers, Chelsea opted for their former player Romelu Lukaku who won the league with inter Milan last season. An agreement was reached and Lukaku became the most expensive player in the history of the club.

But as it seems now, there have been tension and issues as since Lukaku’s arrival, he hasn’t really lived up to expectation with the fans and followers.

The Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku has spoken publicly of his desire to return to former team Inter just a few months after departing the reigning Serie A champions to join Chelsea last summer.

The Belgium international, who has scored twice in the last two games, stressed that he is fully fit after recovering from injury and COVID-19, but expressed his unease for the formation that Thomas Tuchel is using at the Blues.

Lukaku told Sky sports Italy that “Physically I am fine, but I am not happy with the situation at Chelsea.”

“Tuchel has chosen to play with another system. I am not happy and it is normal. The only thing I can do is not give up and continue as a professional.

“[My departure from Inter] shouldn’t have happened that way and I’m sorry for the fans. It wasn’t the time. I have Inter in my heart and I hope to play there again.

“I want to return to Inter from the bottom of my heart. I do not want to do it at the end of my career, but when I am still at the highest level.”
