Chelsea agree deal for Lukaku to leave Stamford Bridge
Romelu Lukaku will seal his return to Inter Milan this week as Chelsea are close to agreeing terms on his loan fee.
The Serie A club has increased their opening offer from £6 million to £8.5 million with add-ons.
According to the Daily Mail, a further video call is scheduled for Monday.
Chelsea have discussed a potential discount on Inter players as part of negotiations with Milan. Skriniar and Denzil Dumfries were among the names floated.

New co-owner Todd Boehly was reluctant to let £97.5m signing Lukaku go but was convinced it was best for all parties once the Belgian made it clear how determined he was to leave.
