‘I only wanted Inter’ – Lukaku


Romelu Lukaku said Inter were the only club he “wanted” as the Belgian striker thanked Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a farewell message.

Lukaku who joined Inter in a club-record deal reported to be €80 million ($90m, €74m) before the Premier League’s transfer window slammed shut.

Lukaku shared on his Instagram: “I’m really happy to be here! Thank you for the support. Forza Inter.”

Recall that the 26-year-old spent two years at Old Trafford after arriving from Premier League rivals Everton for a fee in the region of £75 million ($91m) in 2017, despite Conte’s best efforts to bring him to Chelsea during the Italian’s time in London.

Lukaku scored 12 Premier League goals in 2018-19 and 15 across all competitions as United finished sixth and lost to Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals last season.

Despite scoring 42 goals for United in all competitions, United were willing to part with Lukaku as manager Solskjaer preferred Marcus Rashford up front.

“To everyone involved with Manchester United – from the board to the manager and his staff, the players, and the fans. Thank you and good luck for the future @manchesterunited,” Lukaku wrote on social media.
