Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku has finally admitted that joining Chelsea was a mistake.

According to the Metro, Romelu Lukaku has finally acknowledged that switching to Chelsea from Inter Milan last summer was a mistake.
Lukaku spent a club-record £97 million to return to Chelsea, but the Belgian’s homecoming was a failure as he managed just eight Premier League goals in 26 appearances.
After giving an explosive interview last December in which he expressed remorse at joining the West London club, the 29-year-old incurred the anger of Thomas Tuchel, his colleagues, and Blues supporters.
While Tuchel claims there is a potential Lukaku might play for Chelsea once again, it is doubtful given that he returned to Inter on loan earlier in July.
Even though Lukaku has made it clear that Chelsea was the wrong team for him to join, it was actually the player who initially pushed for a transfer away from the San Siro. However, in a recent interview, Lukaku has now acknowledged that he never should have thought about leaving Italy.

A presentation of the new Inter shirts for the forthcoming season had him saying, “This season here will be the biggest challenge of my career.
“I left. He made a light-hearted joke to his teammate Nicolo Barella, “It was a mistake, huh Nico?
The club knows what to do, this season will be a fantastic challenge, and I’m glad to be wearing this jersey now. We need to keep playing like this.
When I was in England last season, I came to understand how significant Inter are on the global stage. The club’s profile is improving on an international scale, the social media approach is really important too and you can see how we act in the locker room, in training, our hugs and jokes. “Milan is a wonderful city and that is why I kept the old apartment when I went to London, because my mother was coming here all the time and I wanted to return too.”
Lukaku won the Serie A in 2021 with 64 goals in 95 appearances during two seasons with Inter.
