Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku left Inter Milan to double his salary, CEO Beppe Marotta has said. He recently revealed that the club has zero complaints after parting ways with the Belgian.
According to him, Lukaku was sold for €115m and Dzeko join Inter for free, plus there is not much difference in quality between both strikers on the pitch.
Beppe added that Italian clubs just cannot compete with the financial figures in the English Premier League.
His words, “Lukaku was sold for €115m and we bought Dzeko for free. On the pitch, there isn’t much difference. Lukaku left to double his salary, in Italy these figures can’t exist.”
“Today, we can’t make important investments, I wouldn’t be allowed to sign Lukaku for €75m (£63m/$87m). We need reduced and specific investments.”
On the future of other players, “Barella and Lautaro will extend their contract with a pay rise, we are close.”
“Brozovic’s contract is expiring, it will take more time, but I am confident.”
