  • Chelsea reject Inter's bid for Lukaku
  • Lukaku has three years left in Chelsea contract
  • Has offers from Al-Hilal and Juventus

WHAT HAPPENED? Inter, who signed Lukaku on loan from Chelsea last season, submitted a bid worth €30m (£25.6m/$33m) to sign the Belgian striker permanently which the Premier League side reportedly rejected. And now Lukaku is considering making a move to Saudi Arabia with Al-Hilal interested in signing him, according to Jacob Steinberg.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Lukaku still has three years left in his existing contract with the Blues but it is unlikely that he will continue at Stamford. He is due to re-unite with his Chelsea teammate for pre-season training but new Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino recently hinted that Lukaku could be on his way out of the club.

AND WHAT'S MORE: Lukaku already rejected a lucrative offer from Al-Hilal last month as he was determined to play for Inter in the upcoming season.
