I was in a deep hole at Man Utd – Lukaku reveals more details

Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku, has given more details about his move from Inter Milan.

Lukaku admits he didn’t want to go behind the Serie A club’s back, as they saved him from “a deep hole” at Manchester United.

Both clubs eventually agreed to a £97.5 million fee for the Belgian striker.

Lukaku told HLN: “I only realized that Chelsea was serious when they made their third offer.

“First they offered €100m (£85m). Then €105m (£90m), €105m plus [Marcos] Alonso. Then they offered €110m (£94.2m) plus [Davide] Zappacosta, but Inter said no.

“I didn’t want to go behind Inter’s back. They got me out of the s***. I was in a deep hole at Man United.

“After training, I went to [Simone] Inzaghi’s office. I didn’t want to ruin the atmosphere because I was no longer with my head in Milan. So I asked him: please find an agreement.”
