Romelu Lukaku has dropped the mother of all bombshells on Chelsea and his manager Thomas Tuchel.

‘Physically I am fine. But I’m not happy with the situation at Chelsea,’ he told Sky Italy.

‘Tuchel has chosen to play with another system – I won’t give up, I’ll be professional. I am not happy with the situation but I am professional – and I can’t give up now.

‘I think everything that happened last summer was not supposed to happen like this… how I left Inter, the way I left the club, how I communicated with Inter fans – this bothers me because it was not the right time.

‘Now it’s the right time to share my feelings. I have always said that I have Inter in my heart: I know I will return to Inter, I really hope so. I am in love with Italy, this is the right moment to talk and let people know what really happened.

‘I really hope from bottom of my heart to return to Inter not at the end of my career, but when I’m still at top level to win more together.’

Lukaku wants to make amends with Inter fans, after a mural of him in the city was splashed over with paint by the club’s ultras, who felt betrayed by his departure. 

They also draped a banner that roughly translates to: ‘You broke our balls.’   

Lukaku went on: ‘I really hope from bottom of my heart to return to Inter not at the end of my career, but when I’m still at top level to win more together.’

The timing of the 28-year-old’s remarks will come as a shock to those in west London, especially as he has scored in Chelsea’s last two games. 

He netted in the 3-1 win over Aston Villa and contributed the opener in Wednesday’s draw against Brighton.

Lukaku has been sidelined with injury for much of this season but was not firing on all cylinders prior to the lay-off. 

Despite starting the campaign well, the powerful frontman then went on a barren run. Before the Boxing Day strike, he had not slotted home for Chelsea in the Premier League since September 11. 

Reports in Italy are already talking up the possibility of a loan move to Inter in January when the transfer window opens.
