CHELSEA flop Romelu Lukaku got his name on the scoresheet as Inter Milan romped to a 10-0 win during pre-season.

The on-loan striker returned to Chelsea for £97.5million last summer, but failed to adapt to Thomas Tuchel’s system and repeatedly stated his unhappiness at the club.

Consequently, Lukaku was loaned back to Inter Milan for the upcoming season and looks to have started exactly where he left off.

The 29-year-old, showed some good ball control and strong link-up with strike partner Lautaro Martinez.

When Lukaku was last at the club he and Martinez fired the Nerazzurri to their first Serie A title in over a decade.

However, this season they failed to defend their crown and lost out to AC Milan.

Lukaku managed just eight league goals for Chelsea last season, going on an eight month stretch where he scored just twice in the Premier League despite a strong start and finish to the season for him.

By contrast, he scored 24 league goals during Inter’s 2020/21 title winning campaign.

Upon his return to Inter, Lukaku said “it’s like coming home” and shared a cryptic post on Instagram in what some fans believe to be a thinly veiled dig at Chelsea.

There is no clause in the loan deal to make the switch permanent.

Chelsea are set to confirm the arrival of Raheem Sterling from Man City in a £45m deal, meaning options up front could be very stacked when he returns to Chelsea next summer.

A brace from Martinez and goals from a host of youngsters helped to round off the 10-0 win over Italian fifth division side FC Milanese.
