Confusion as Chelsea's Lukaku changes social media bio to Inter Milan

Belgian forward, Romelu Lukaku, has left fans confused after his former club Inter Milan appeared on his social media bios rather than Chelsea.

Lukaku was dropped by Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, from the squad facing Liverpool on Sunday after revealing he "was not very happy" at Chelsea during a recent explosive interview with Sky Italia.

The 28-year-old Belgian also accused his manager of "playing a different formation" than the one that gets the best out of him.

Lukaku who rejoined the club about four months ago for a club-record fee of £97.5m caused more confusion when he revealed that he would love to return to the Serie A side while he is still in the prime of his career.

Although The Blues started the Super Sunday clash without Lukaku in a shaky manner, they quickly regrouped and denied Liverpool three points with a 2-2 draw.

Fans have now started asking questions after discovering that the Chelsea striker is still listed as playing for Inter Milan as his team on his Facebook account amidst uncertainty about his future, Daily Mail reports.

Speaking during the explosive interview that left Tuchel and Chelsea displeased, Lukaku caused more stir when he said he would like to return to Inter in his prime.

"I think everything that happened last summer was not supposed to happen like this… how I left Inter, the way I left the club, how I communicated with Inter fans – this bothers me because it was not the right time.

"Now it’s the right time to share my feelings. I have always said that I have Inter in my heart: I know I will return to Inter, I really hope so. I am in love with Italy, this is the right moment to talk and let people know what really happened.

"I really hope from bottom of my heart to return to Inter not at the end of my career, but when I’m still at top level to win more together."

Lukaku has spent just four months with the west London club netting just five times in 13 Premier League appearances so far this season.

He's had to battle with an ankle injury and Covid infection during the ongoing campaign.

During his time with the Nerazzurri, he scored 24 goals in 36 league games to help his side to their first title in 11 years and dethrone Juventus as Serie A champions.
