Antonio Cassano has taken aim at Romelu Lukaku for demanding a return to Inter Milan only a year after his “dream” move to Chelsea.

The Belgian striker is reportedly ready to return to Italy after a £97million switch to Stamford Bridge, potentially on a loan deal.

However, former Inter striker Cassano is unsure how the fans will react to Lukaku’s signing if it means selling Lautaro Martinez amid talks to sign Paulo Dybala as well - particularly given the manner of his exit.

“I wouldn't take him back,” Cassano told his Bobo TV stream.

“He said he was going to his dream team, earning 15 million euros. Now, however, in London he doesn’t kick a ball and would like to return to Italy.

“Inter's problem, given that Dybala is coming, is that if they get Lukaku they have to sell Lautaro. Again, I would not sign Lukaku.

“Also because first of all you have to pay for him, but then you have to see the reaction of the fans: if he scores two goals per game, okay, but otherwise the situation becomes quite difficult.

“Lukaku has to think about it. At this point, I say he stays at Chelsea.”
