Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan) has rejected the Saudi Arabian League’s offer. It is known that he wants a higher salary.
The British media Daily Star 스포츠토토 reported on the 14th (Korea Standard Time) that “Lukaku was offered an amazing amount of more than 15 million pounds a year in the Saudi League.” But he wants a lot more money than that. I ignored the proposal,’ the report said.
Lukaku left Inter Milan to join Chelsea ahead of the 2021-2022 season. Chelsea have invested a whopping £98m to sign Lukaku. It fell short of expectations. He scored eight goals in 26 Premier League matches. Lukaku also drew public outrage from fans by saying in an interview, “I’m not happy at Chelsea.” In the end, he transferred to Inter Milan on loan in the 2022-2023 season. He scored 10 goals in 25 Serie A matches.
Citing a report by French media Foot Mercato, the Daily Star said, “Lucaku recently met with Al Hilal officials at a hotel in Paris. The potential conditions were discussed. It offered £15.8 million a year. But Lukaku said he wanted a lot more to play football outside of major European leagues.’
The media said, “Lukaku’s position may be related to the wages of Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr) and Karim Benzema (Al Itihad).” According to local media reports, both Ronaldo and Benjama earn more than £100 million a year.
