Todd Boehly’s relationship with Roc Nation Sports could aid Chelsea’s attempts to offload striker Romelu Lukaku to Inter.

The Serie A side have privately confirmed their interest in re-signing Lukaku, with Chelsea prepared to facilitate a move for the Belgian, who managed 15 goals in 44 games following his £97.5m signing last summer.

The main issue is that Inter cannot afford to pay anywhere near the fee Chelsea parted with to sign Lukaku, while his high wages are well beyond what the Nerazzurri could offer as well.

There will need to be effort made from everyone involved, but as noted by The Telegraph, there is hope that the good relationship between Boehly and Roc Nation, who work closely with Lukaku, could smooth things over.

Roc Nation manage Lukaku’s commercial interests and Boehly has a long history of doing business with the group, which was founded by rapper Jay-Z, and the new Chelsea owner even has a history of working directly with Jay-Z as the duo were part of a high-profile investment in Fanatics.
