Romelu Lukaku only joined Chelsea for money, Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta claimed.

Lukaku sacked Inter to a first Serie A title in 11 years with 24 goals last season, but left the club for Chelsea in August for a club record of £ 97.5 million.

Lukaku is reportedly Chelsea’s top winner by one mile, earning £ 450,000 per week including bonuses and dwarfing the club’s next highest earner, N’golo Kante, who earns £ 290,000 per week.

It’s a huge increase in the money Lukaku was in at the San Siro, where he pocketed £ 142,000 a week.

And Inter boss Marotta has no doubt that the huge increase was the reason Lukaku left the Italian champions to return to Stamford Bridge.

‘Lukaku left to double his salary, in Italy these figures cannot exist,’ Marotta told the Italian newspaper Il Corriere della Sera.

While Inter did profit from Lukaku, their financial troubles meant they couldn’t reinvest the money in the team.

Lukaku led Inter to their first Serie A title in 11 years with 24 goals last season before leaving.

But Marotta feels they found a perfect replacement for the Belgian in Edin Dzeko, who joined on a free transfer from Roma.

The former Manchester City hit man has scored six goals in eight Serie A appearances for Inter and was right in his 3-1 win over the Sheriff in the Champions League.

‘Lukaku was sold for 115 million euros and we bought Dzeko for free. In the field there is not much difference ”, added Marotta.

Lukaku got off to a great start on his return to Chelsea, scoring on his debut in a 2-0 win at Arsenal, then bagging a double against Aston Villa and scoring the only goal in the Champions League win over Zenit. .

But goals have dried up in recent weeks and he has been unable to score in his last six games in all competitions.

And things got even worse when Chelsea faced Malmo in the Champions League on Wednesday, and the forward limped with an ankle injury midway through the first half.

Reports say Lukaku could now be out of action for a month, missing the Premier League matches against Norwich, Newcastle and Burnley, as well as a Carabao Cup draw with Southampton and the return match to Malmo.
