Chelsea fans have reacted FURIOUSLY to a recent interview from Romelu Lukaku where he revealed his desire to return to Inter Milan.
Lukaku signed for Chelsea for a reported £97m in the summer transfer window. The Belgian appeared to be the final piece of the puzzle for Thomas Tuchel, whose squad was crying out for a reliable goal scorer.
After a mixed-bag of a start to life back at Stamford Bridge, during which he has suffered an ankle injury and tested positive for COVID-19, Lukaku finally looked as though he was set to kick on, having netted twice in two games.
Instead, an interview has been published today where the man who apparently LOVES Chelsea, and was kissing the badge throughout his first few games back at the club, reveals he wants to return to Inter Milan.

As you could probably have predicted, the vast majority of Chelsea fans reacting to the news are absolutely furious with Lukaku, who has essentially stabbed them in the back after they offered their unwavering support.
Here’s how some Chelsea fans took to Twitter to react to the news. Just a warning, as you could probably predict, there has been some strong language used by the angry fans…
If Romelu Lukaku wants to leave Chelsea, get him out.
I have absolutely no time for those comments – nor the timing of them.
Flirting with another club while under contract and kissing the Chelsea badge, no thanks.
We do not want mercenaries at this football club.

Romelu Lukaku coming out and saying all of this before a massive game against Liverpool, who the f*ck do you think you are, keep it behind the scenes.
Don’t you dare come for Tuchel either, if he’s unhappy, get the f out and we will go all in for Haaland, absolute mess.

Seriously that’s some of the most shocking things I’ve ever seen be said by any footballer about their club let alone someone who apparently adores Chelsea.
Difficult to process what’s going on.

Honestly what is Lukaku thinking with those comments. He’s just ruined every fan’s love for him as well as his respect at the club

I can’t believe what I’m reading with these Lukaku quotes. I’ve backed this man to the hills and it sounds like he can’t even back himself. I hope Chelsea & Tuchel are as ruthless as Pep with players. You want to leave, then leave. This ain’t no feeder club.
