Mentioned if Fabio Vieira will join with a long-term contract. However, it is not stated on the official website how long the 22-year-old midfielder’s contract will be.

Sports journalist Fabrizio Romano said the transfer value of Fabio Vieira was estimated at 35 million euros with an additional bonus (must meet certain clauses) of 5 million euros.

In another place, Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku is widely rumored to be leaving Chelsea to return to Inter Milan. The news of Lukaku’s move to Inter Milan has been confirmed by journalist Fabrizio Romano. In fact, in his post, Fabrizio Romano put the sentence ‘Here We Go!’
Previously, fierce negotiations between Inter Milan and Chelsea seemed to have come to an agreement. Now, Lukaku is one step away from being confirmed as an Inter player.
Inter and Chelsea have reportedly reached an agreement over the loan of Lukaku.
Inter Milan will spend 8 million euros plus a number of bonuses depending on Lukaku’s performance in Italy.
“Romelu Lukaku returns to Inter, here we go and it has been confirmed, a full agreement signed in a loan agreement until June 2023, a fee of 8 million euros plus bonuses,” Fabrizio was quoted as saying by contentPedia via his personal Twitter, Wednesday (22/6/2022).
During his time at Inter Milan until June 2023, Lukaku will receive a salary of around 8 million euros. However, there is no purchase option in Lukaku’s loan agreement.
That means Inter Milan are not obliged to buy Lukaku after the loan period from Chelsea is over.
Lukaku himself does not seem at home with Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea. Despite having been bought expensively from Inter Milan, Chelsea had to let him go back to Italy.
The reason is that even if he stays at Chelsea, Romelu Lukaku cannot be maximized properly so it is better to be loaned back to Inter Milan.
Will Romelu Lukaku’s move to Inter Milan really be realized? Let’s just wait.
