Inter Milan won the Serie A title this season for the first time since 2012. The process had started a season ago with the signing of Antonio Conte. Without wasting a minute, the former Scudetto winning manager brought Romelu Lukaku to Inter. The Belgian was not having the best of seasons and sought to make the best of this move.

Two days back, Romelu Lukaku won the Serie A MVP award. The former Chelsea striker has scored 64 goals in 95 games after arriving at San Siro. This season alone, he bagged 24 goals and 11 assists in the Serie A. Along with Alexis Sanchez and Lautaro Martinez, Inter were uncontainable in the final third of the pitch.

However after the historic title win, Conte decided to part ways with Inter Milan. Inter are set to release a number of players as a part of their cost-cutting efforts to cope with the impact of the pandemic. Manchester City and Chelsea were quick to get in talks to sign Lukaku. However the striker has pledged that he would stay.

Premier League history

Romelu Lukaku made his professional debut at the age of 16 for his boyhood club Anderlecth. In 2011, Chelsea signed him when he was just 18. He struggled to break in to first team. In his defence, this was the side that had players like Fernando Torres, Juan Mata, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba. Chelsea sent him on loan to West Brom and after that to Everton. He scored 16 goals and 17 goals for the clubs respectively.

Everton decided to buy him and this is when he established himself as a ferocious striker. At Everton, he bagged 53 goals in 110 appearances in 3 seasons. Many clubs had him on their radar and it was Manchester United that signed him. He called it a dream after signing but it quickly turned into a nightmare. He spent another season before informing Ole Gunnar Solksjaer that he wanted to leave.

Lukaku at Inter

Lukaku’s career took a turn at Inter. Serie A is comparatively slower and more focused on aerial duels, Lukaku’s strong point.

Lukaku has said that he is looking forward to work with newly appointed manager Simone Inzaghi. He added that he will stay to win more Scudettos. Now that’s a man with a plan.
