The Belgium international found it difficult to leave inter Milan and didn’t want to go behind their backs after they rescued him from a “deep shit” at Manchester United few years ago.
The young star Romelu lukaku struggled in his two years at old Trafford but now his one of the signings of the summer after he moved back to the premier league with Chelsea.
Blues fans will have no doubt to be intrigued to hear more from Lukaku about all this came about.
“I only realised that Chelsea were serious when they made their third offer”, Lukaku told HLN via Instagram
“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 manunited.
Lukaku felt strongly about inter, but also found it difficult to turn down the offer to play for Chelsea again after his spell there as a youngster.
The 28-year-old’s Instagram farewell to the Nerazzuri supporters sums up his feelings well.
“Dear inter fans, Thank you for loving me as one of your own. Thank you for making me and my family feel at home in Milan”, he told them.
