Romelu Lukaku’s value has dropped dramatically in a year that will deal a huge blow to Chelsea and their hopes of selling him in the future.
The Belgian striker is now at Inter after struggling at Stamford Bridge in the 2021-22 season and his second spell at the Nerrazzuri hasn’t quite gone according to plan.
Lukaku has suffered from injury problems and has been unable to reach the heights he reached in his first spell at the San Siro when he propelled Inter to the league title in 2021.
Now according to the evaluation of Football Transfersthings are not looking good for Romelu, Chelsea and Inter with the striker’s form affecting his transfer value.
The drop in Lukaku’s rating has been an indication of how recent years have gone for the Belgian striker, as he has rarely been in his prime since his move to Stamford Bridge in 2021.
In his prime, he was valued at €107m when he completed his move to Chelsea, on the heels of a season in which he was the star behind Inter’s win under Antonio Conte.
His value dropped to €70m a year later when his form hit a snag and he completed a return on loan to the San Siro, hoping to win it back as he was in a place where he felt comfortable.
However, with the loan move not going according to plan, having not started a league match since August, had a poor World Cup with Belgium and fell behind Edin Dzeko in the pecking order, his value has fallen.

He is now valued at €51m, a sharp drop from his first spell at Inter and, if things remain the same, he will be worth even less come summer.
Some Inter faithful have been calling for Lukaku’s loan to be terminated and the option of signing him permanently not taken up given his lack of performance, which shows how frustrating this has been.
