Chelsea Agree Club-Record £97.5m For Lukaku, Man Utd To Pocket Millions

Romelu Lukaku looks set to be on his way back to Chelsea after 10 years having agreed in principle a club-record deal worth £97.5m (€115m).

The paperwork is now with club lawyers and once that is formalised, the 28-year-old will undergo a medical and sign a five-year contract, according to Sky Sports.

Inter Milan have previously rejected two offers from Chelsea for the Belgium international, the second of which was worth £85m (€100m) plus left-back Marcos Alonso.

Inter must decrease their wage bill this summer and title-winning manager Antonio Conte left the club in May amid concerns about plans to reduce his budget.

Meanwhile, MEN report that Manchester United are in line to receive £4million from Lukaku's move to Stamford Bridge thanks to a sell-on clause inserted when the Belgian moved to Inter Milan.
