There is uncertainty over the future of the Belgian striker, who continues to struggle with the physical problems that hinder him
Now Romelu Lukaku raises the alarm. The Belgian forward’s physical problems make Inter think, and they are starting to think about next season.
At the moment Lukaku represents more of a physical, technical and management problem than an asset for Simone Inzaghi’s team.
His physical condition is very far from the top and the fear of the club is that he won’t be able to find stability and continuity.
“If Lukaku is this, or rather if he will continue to be this, there can be no certainty about the future. And therefore also about the prospect of a loan renewal with Chelsea at the end of the season” writes La Gazzetta dello Sport.
During the match against Napoli, Lukaku suffered a slight inflammation of the tendon. Nothing to worry about, but it’s yet another hiccup. The point is that the Belgian is not physically fit and is unable to progress fully.
La Rosea reveals a background referring to the away match in Monza on Saturday:
“The Belgian did not enter the field with his bench mates for the warm-up. He did so when the others had already been on the pitch for 15 minutes. The reason? The Belgian was in the locker room completing the extremely laborious sessions of necessary massages”.
Now, however, Lukaku must start giving concrete signs of growth. For his part, entering the race in progress doesn’t help him. In fact, the Belgian needs a long warm-up to get his body moving.CopyAMP code.
While on the one hand Inzaghi must understand how much he can count on him in the coming weeks and in Inter’s tour de force, the club has an obligation to look at the longer term:
“On Lukaku there has been a discussion with Chelsea since last summer, regarding the possibility of renewing the loan for another season. But it is right to be cautious, from this point of view. Because all reasoning will be guided by the next few months of the season. Inter are in no hurry and want to understand well. This was clearly not the type of return that the club expected, in the face of an investment of 20 million euros (excluding bonuses) between salary and loan costs An encore must be evaluated well, in all aspects”.
Now it’s up to Lukaku to conquer Inter again and push the club to close the deal with Chelsea, eliminating all the question marks and returning to being decisive.
