Inter Milan and Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku says he is staying in Milan with Inter following his success in leading the club to the Serie A title.
The former Manchester United forward joined Inter for £74m in 2019, scoring 64 goals in 95 games for the club.
However, after winning Inter’s first Serie A title in 11 years, there has been speculation that the 28-year-old could be sold due to cost-cutting at the San Siro club, which even led to Antonio Conte resigning as manager of the Nerazzurri due to disagreements over the spending around players and retention of certain stars as well.
“I am staying,” Lukaku told Belgian TV. “I feel good at Inter.”
Inter’s Chinese owners Suning are seeking to cut costs, a move that led to manager Conte quitting last week. Former Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi is expected to take charge at Inter.
“I’ve already had contact with the man who becomes our new manager,” he told Belgian station VTM.
“Maybe I shouldn’t say that yet. It was a very positive conversation. There’s also the challenge of doing it again (winning the league).”
Lukaku is currently preparing with Belgium, the world’s top-ranked side as per the FIFA rankings, for Euro 2020.
Belgium feature in Group B alongside Russia, Denmark and Finland. The Red Devils come into the tournament as one of the favourites to go all the way and lift the cup.
Roberto Martinez’s side has been on a winning streak and expect that to continue.
