Romelu Lukaku has completed his loan move back to Inter Milan from Chelsea, the Premier League club have confirmed.

The Belgium international striker will spend the 2022-23 campaign with Inter, the club he left to rejoin Chelsea in a £97.5million deal last summer.

The 29-year-old endured an underwhelming 2021-22 season at Stamford Bridge, although he still finished as the Blues’ top scorer with 15 goals.

A tweet from Chelsea read: “Romelu Lukaku will spend the 2022-23 campaign with Inter Milan after completing a season-long loan.”

The news was also confirmed in a short video posted by Inter in which the player said he was “very happy”.

They followed with another tweet which read: “Welcome back Rom.”

Lukaku should make his second debut for the club when they head to Lecce in their opening Serie A game on August 14.

Inter finished second to city rivals AC Milan last season and will be hoping Lukaku’s return can fire them back to top spot in Italy.
