Romelu Lukaku’s agent promises to explain rationale behind Chelsea move amid protest, insults

Romelu Lukaku’s agent has sent out a message amid the Chelsea speculation and protests against Inter. ‘You’ll hear our reasons soon, whatever happens.’

The negotiations continue, with reports the Nerazzurri are prepared to accept €130m in cash.

It is also suggested that Lukaku has asked Inter to leave for a return to one of his first clubs, fuelling irritation from the fans.

Some aimed abuse at Pastorello on Instagram and one apologised to the representative for the insults.

“Thank you for your words,” he wrote in response.

“You will be able to hear our reasons soon, whatever happens in the end.”

La Gazzetta dello Sport and Sky Sport Italia claim this evening that Chelsea will make another bid worth €120m in cash plus a player, probably not Marcos Alonso, with a telephone conversation set for tomorrow.

The pressure is building meanwhile on Inter President Steven Zhang to reject all proposals and keep the top scorer who led them to the Scudetto.
