Romelu Lukaku has signed a five year contract with Italian club, Inter Milan. The club confirmed the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United on a five-year contract. They signed him for a fee of over £73m.
The Belgium international arrived in Italy for his medical on Wednesday. This has now sealed his move to the San Siro on a deal until June 30th 2024.
“Inter Milan was the only club I wanted. I’m here to bring the Nerazzurri back to the top” Lukaku told the Italian Club’s official website.
On Wednesday evening, Lukaku’s agent, Federico Pastorello, posted an Instagram image of himself and the striker on a private jet with the caption: “Ready to take off…direction Milan”, and the location set at Brussels Airport.
Manchester United later confirmed the transfer on their website in a short statement that reads;
“Everybody would like to thank Romelu for his efforts at the club and pass on our best wishes for the future”.
The 26-year-old had been linked with a move to another Serie A side – Juventus – earlier in the transfer window. But that would have formed part of a swap deal with forward Paulo Dybala which eventually fell through.
Lukaku leaves Old Trafford having scored 42 goals in 96 matches for United after joining from Everton for £75m in July 2017.
