Wait, did Romelu Lukaku just called Man Utd shit?
Inter Milan completed the signing of Romelu Lukaku on a five-year deal from Manchester United in 2019 after a tough second season at Old Trafford. But it appears Lukaku is still pained after his Old Trafford exit.
The Belgian is now back at Chelsea where he was once rejected after the European Champions lured him back to England in a deal worth £97.5 million, making him the club’s all-time record signing.
The Belgian forward previously arrived at Stamford Bridge back in the summer of 2011 from Belgian side Anderlecht for a fee of around £17 million-plus add-ons. However, Lukaku did not score a single first-team goal for Chelsea in his first spell.

Romelu Lukaku has finally reflected on his time at Manchester United and also his return to Chelsea by saying his mind was already set on a return to Stamford Bridge once Chelsea made their third offer to Inter Milan to sign him.
Speaking to HLN, Romelu Lukaku said;
When Chelsea made their third offer I knew it was serious and I was no longer with my head in Milan. Chelsea offered €110m plus Zappacosta, but Inter said no. So I told Inzaghi: ‘Inter pulled me out of shit but I wanna leave only because of Chelsea’.
Inter Milan played a vital part in rejuvenating his career but he wanted to leave just because Chelsea had come calling. The 28-year-old forward has also revealed that the Blues made an audacious bid of €110 million-plus Davide Zappacosta to secure his services. Lukaku said:
Lukaku, 28, scored 42 goals in 96 appearances for the Red Devils. However, he netted just 15 times in 45 appearances across all competitions in his last season at Manchester United, his lowest tally in a single season since his debut campaign at Chelsea (2011-12) when he failed to score in 12 appearances.
