Romelu Lukaku only joined Chelsea for money, Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta has claimed.

Lukaku fired Inter to a first Serie A title in 11 years with 24 goals last season but left the club for Chelsea in August for a club-record £97.5million.

According to reports, Lukaku is Chelsea's top earner by a mile, earning £450,000 per week including bonuses and dwarfing the club's next highest earner N'golo Kante, who is on £290,000 per week.

It's a huge increase on the money Lukaku was on at San Siro, where he pocketed £142,000 weekly.

And Inter chief Marotta has no doubt that the huge increase was the reason Lukaku left the Italian champions to return to Stamford Bridge.

'Lukaku left to double his salary, in Italy these figures can't exist,' Marotta told Italian newspaper Il Corriere della Sera.

While Inter cashed in on Lukaku, their financial troubles meant they could not re-invest the money in the squad.

But Marotta feels they found a perfectly good replacement for the Belgian in Edin Dzeko, who joined on a free transfer from Roma.

The former Manchester City hitman has scored six goals in eight Serie A appearances for Inter and was on target in their 3-1 win over Sheriff in the Champions League.

'Lukaku was sold for €115m and we bought Dzeko for free. On the pitch, there isn't much difference,' Marotta added.

Lukaku made a flying start on his return to Chelsea, scoring on his debut in the 2-0 win at Arsenal, then bagging a brace against Aston Villa and striking the only goal in the Champions League win over Zenit.

But the goals have dried up in recent weeks and he has failed to score in his last six matches in all competitions.

And things got even worse when Chelsea faced Malmo in the Champions League on Wednesday, the striker hobbling off with an ankle injury midway through the first half.

Reports say Lukaku could now be out of action for a month, missing Premier League games against Norwich, Newcastle and Burnley, as well as a Carabao Cup tie with Southampton and the return fixture away to Malmo.
