Romelu Lukaku reveals his future plan after meeting new Inter Milan boss amid Chelsea interest

Romelu Lukaku confirms he is ‘staying at Inter’ and has ‘already spoken to the new coach,’ despite Chelsea interest to sign the Belgium international.

The striker had been linked with a possible return to the Premier League for Chelsea or Manchester City.

However, he just had the best campaign of his career when helping Inter win the Serie A title and has no intention of moving on.

“I am staying at Inter,” Lukaku told VTM this evening.

“I’ve already spoken to the man who will become our new coach. Maybe I shouldn’t say that yet… but it was a very positive conversation.”

Simone Inzaghi will be made official tomorrow as the replacement for Antonio Conte, but Inter haven’t announced that yet.

Conte terminated his contract by mutual consent just days after celebrating the Scudetto victory.

“The challenge is to win again. I feel good at Inter, I finally won some silverware. I really enjoyed it, but I want to do that again, this time with a packed San Siro.”

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry explains why Chelsea should not allow Olivier Giroud to leave Stamford Bridge

Thierry Henry has explained why Chelsea may be making a mistake by allowing Olivier Giroud to leave the club this summer.

Latest reports claim AC Milan are determined to acquire the services of the striker on free transfer this summer.

Giroud is out of contract at Stamford Bridge this summer after three successful years at the club which have seen him win a Champions League, a Europa League and two FA Cups.

The veteran striker joined Chelsea for a bargain £15million from Arsenal, and he has proved to be a smart signing for the Blues, though the Frenchman is likely to leave the club this summer.

The 34-year-old has struggled for game time under Thomas Tuchel, and after joining up with France for Euro 2020, he will be searching for a new opportunity at club level.

Though Gunners legend Henry has warned why Giroud still very much has a place at any top club, labeling him a ‘dying’ breed.

“In the past three or four years it seems like he’s struggling for starts with his team at club level, but whenever he plays – whether it’s at club level or in the national team – he often delivers,” he told Goal.

“Olivier is the type of striker that is kind of dying right now.

“The old school, holding the ball up, passing the ball to the winger, getting into the box and breaking your neck to score with a header.

“But what I like is how he puts people in a game. He’s very good, he will give the assist sometimes when you link up with him on a one-two.”

Jorginho reveals how he combines Brazil, Italy in his game, thanks manager for “showing great faith in me”

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho reveals how he combines the Italian and Brazilian elements of his character, thanking Roberto Mancini for “showing great faith in me.”

It has been a remarkable week for the midfielder, who lifted the Champions League trophy with Chelsea and now prepares for Euro 2020.

“Each of us will bring so much energy and enthusiasm into the tournament,” he told RAI Sport as cited by Football Italia.

“It’s not just about what I achieved with my club, but this is also my first major competition with Italy and I really want to do well.

“Italy suffered so much during the pandemic and I think this sport can bring some joy back to the people. We hope to give that to our fans this summer.

“At moments like the Champions League Final, I close my eyes and think back to everything I went through to follow my dream and reach this point.”

The Azzurri are in Group A with Turkey, Switzerland and Wales, kicking off on June 11 at the Stadio Olimpico.

“Mancini was so important in my career, as he showed great faith in me. We deserve to be where we are now, but must also keep our feet on the ground, because there’s so much more to be done.”

Jorginho was born in Brazil, but moved to Italy for the Hellas Verona youth academy.

“I feel that I’ve got the Brazilian technique with the ball, but the Italian mentality to always train hard and win.”

Sergio Ramos fuels fresh speculation over Real Madrid, snubs club’s 2021/22 kit launch

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has increased speculation surrounding his future after he did not appear in their 2021/22 kit launch.

The Spanish international has been heavily linked with a move away from the club in the coming weeks with his current contract set to expire at the end of June.

Ramos has been locked in extension talks with the board since the start of 2021 but there has been little progress from either side.

The 35-year-old remains committed to securing a two-year deal despite the club’s insistence on offering 12-month contracts to players aged over 30.

President Florentino Perez is rumoured to be unwilling to change the policy for Ramos and he could now follow Zinedine Zidane out of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu this summer, according to Football Espana.

Ramos could make an announcement on his future before the end of the month after not being selected for Euro 2020 duty by Spain boss Luis Enrique.

Luis Suarez draws inspiration from Chelsea’s exploits in Champions League

Atletico Madrid striker Luis Suarez has drawn inspiration from Chelsea’s Champions League campaign, which culminated in their victory over Manchester City on Saturday.

Suarez helped the Los Rojiblancos to win the La Liga title in his first season at Diego Simeone’s side.

According to the Uruguay international, no club in Europe took the Blues seriously as possible contenders for the Champions League trophy until they won the trophy on Saturday.

But the west London club shot into reckoning after defeating Atletico Madrid in the latter stages of the competition.

Suarez said: “The ambition does not have to stop and why not dream of having that possibility of entering the club’s history and winning a European Cup.

“It would be something incredible, something unique. The teams and the possibilities are not marked by anyone before each season, whether one or the other is a favourite.

“Look at Chelsea, whom everyone wanted to face because they saw them as weak and they ended up winning the Champions League.”
