Belgium striker, Romelu Lukaku has completed a move to Serie A giants Inter Milan after the Italian side reached an agreement with Manchester United to sign the striker for a fee that could rise to 80m euros (£74m).
In July, United rejected Inter’s £54m bid for Lukaku, who was fined by the club after missing training on Tuesday. The Belgium record goalscorer at only 26 years of age, has trained at his former team Anderlecht for the past two days while he was hoping to force a move out of the Premier League side before the end of the English transfer window.
The former Chelsea man landed in Milan on Wednesday night alongside his agent and was welcomed by hundreds of Inter Ultras who chanted his name at the top of their voices. The Belgian completed his medicals.
Lukaku moved to United from Everton in 2017 and scored 42 goals in 96 appearances. At the time he moved to Old Trafford for 75 million, he was only the fourth player to score 80 goals in the Premier League before turning 24 – after Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler and Wayne Rooney.
In his debut season at United, Lukaku became one of only 11 United players to score 25 goals or more in a campaign since 1992-93. Cantona, Andy Cole and current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (25 each) are among the strikers who never matched Lukaku’s 27-goal tally in a United campaign.
