Two Keys that Made Lukaku Managed to Leave MU

Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku went through a drama when he wanted to leave Manchester United to join Inter Milan at the start of the 2019-2020 season. The transfer drama that Romelu Lukaku went through later became one of the unique story in the midst of the Inter Milan championship party.

As is known, Inter Milan has been confirmed to be the champion of Serie A, the highest caste of the Italian League, the 2020-2021 season. Inter Milan’s success in winning the Italian League this season cannot be separated from Romelu Lukaku’s important role while filling the Nerazzurri’s front lines.

In the Italian League 2020-2021 season, Lukaku has contributed 21 goals and nine assists from 33 appearances. With that record, Lukaku deserves to be called one of the key factors behind the story of champions Inter Milan.

Lukaku has helped Inter Milan secure their first Scudetto in 11 years. Prior to this, Inter Milan last won the Scudetto in the 2009-2010 season. That time, veteran Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho was the coach.

Lukaku only needed two seasons to present the Italian League trophy to Inter Milan. However, Lukaku apparently went through a transfer drama before starting his success story with Beneamata.

Inter’s CEO, Beppe Marotta, admits Lukaku is the toughest player to sign. Based on reports from the journal Sks Sports, Gianluca Di Marzio, Man United as the club owner at that time planned to swap Lukaku with Juventus player, Paulo Dybala.

As a result, Inter’s intention to sign Lukaku has become very complicated. It will take time and some action to get Man United to let Lukaku go to Inter. According to the Sky Sports report, there were two key steps that made Lukaku free from Man United’s shackles, joining Inter, and winning the Scudetto.

Lukaku’s message to Man United’s Sports Director
The first step was the courage of Romelu Lukaku to convey a message to the Man United Sports Director. Through that message, Lukaku confirmed his desire to join Inter Milan. He feels he is not included in the plans of the current Man United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. “I want to go,” Lukaku said in a meeting with Man United.

Antonio Conte’s determination
Furthermore, the second step that launched Lukaku’s transfer to Inter was realized through the determination of the coach, Antonio Conte. Antonio Conte is said to continue working and pushing the club until an agreement with Lukaku is reached. After that, Lukaku officially joined Inter Milan in August 2019. Since wearing the Inter shirt, Lukaku has packed 61 goals in 93 appearances. He continued to show quality until he won the Scudetto with Inter.
