Lukaku wants a reunion with Conte after his controversial interview. The Belgian was not a part of the squad when Chelsea faced Liverpool yesterday. Thomas Tuchel decided to drop him as he did not want to hamper the preparations before the big game. Lukaku has spoken highly of his time at Inter, and he said that he wants to return one day as the Nerazzurri is very close to his heart.
Lukaku resurrected his career at Inter under Conte. The Belgian got a lot of criticism when he was with United and then was sold to Inter for £73 million. Conte got the best out of him by playing him in a front two. Lukaku and Lautaro formed a great partnership at the top, which helped Inter to reach the Europa League finals. Also, they finished 2nd in Serie A in their first season. Lukaku then went on to have one of the best seasons of his career as he helped Inter to win the Scudetto after more than 11 years. Hence, the Belgian feels that he can come back to his best if he reunites with Conte.
Lukaku wants a reunion with Conte in the summer
According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, Lukaku will not move in January and will have to wait till summer. Clubs like Manchester City are also keen, but the Belgian wants to play under Conte. Inter could also offer him a loan deal in the summer. Spurs were looking to sign Dusan Vlahovic in the summer, but they could sign Lukaku if he wants to play under Conte again.
Lukaku said that Thomas Tuchel convinced him to join Chelsea. But the Belgian is unhappy now as he is not playing in his desired formation. Lukaku wanted to play in a front two, but Tuchel has kept him alone at the front. However, the German manager said that they might find a solution.
