Swap deal with Inter Milan makes perfect sense – Talk Chelsea

I’d say that in my experience of supporting Chelsea in recent years, due to the fact that this potential swap deal makes SO much sense, it probably wouldn’t happen! But we have new owners, and I am putting my faith in them to spot such a deal and go for it.

I am of course talking about a potential swap deal with Inter Milan that could see Romelu Lukaku return their this summer and put all parties out of their misery.

The reliable Ben Jacobs has reported today that Inter would be open to including defender Milan Skriniar, or another defender Alessandro Bastoni, as part of a swap deal in exchange for Lukaku, should Chelsea wish to entertain such an offer.

This makes perfect sense to me. Chelsea need to get something out of this rather than just fold over for a loan deal. Inter cannot afford to pay a fee for Lukaku, and I am pretty sure that Chelsea might even owe some money on the transfer fee they paid for Lukaku last summer. So, an exchange for a player and sorting out writing off the rest of the fee, depending how much that is, would be a good way to go.

Chelsea need a new centre-back or two, and Lukaku wants to return to Inter, so to me, I’d take either one of Bastoni or Skriniar in exchange for a player who does not want to be here, it’s pretty much a no brainer if the deal can be right.
