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


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.”
