MILAN – Inter Milan have completed the signing of striker Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United, ending the Belgium international’s two-year spell at Old Trafford which began brightly, but ended with him battling for a place in the team.
Inter said in a statement on Thursday that Lukaku, who will spearhead the Serie A club’s attack in a revamped team under new coach Antonio Conte as they attempt to win their first major trophy since 2011, had signed a contract until June 2024.
No financial details were given but local media said the transfer fee was around €80 million.
“Inter were the only club I wanted,” said Lukaku. “I’m here to bring the Nerazzurri back to the top.”
The powerfully-built left-footed striker was also wanted by Italian champions Juventus, according to media reports.
