Romelu Lukaku convinced two players to leave Man Utd and join Inter Milan

Inter Milan star Romelu Lukaku reportedly urged Ashley Young and Alexis Sanchez to follow his lead and ditch Manchester United for the Serie A giants.

Lukaku struggled at times at Old Trafford and left the Premier League for Inter in August 2019 in a £72m deal.

Young and Sanchez have both made the same moves over the past two transfer windows with Chilean Sanchez originally joining on loan.

Lukaku has shone at Inter and scored 34 goals across all competitions last season and reportedly passed on positive messages to Young and Sanchez.

La Republicca claim Lukaku was tired of United because Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial were struggling to pass him the ball.

And it’s reported that, when Sanchez and Young spoke to the Belgian about a potential move, Lukaku’s message praised Inter.

The striker had been frustrated with a divided Old Trafford dressing room and reportedly told his now team-mates that Inter was ‘really good, there are no clans’.

Lukaku has put his success at Inter down to boss Antonio Conte, saying: “For me he is a mentor, a father, a person who understands me.

“And I understand him too and I am grateful to him for the support he has always shown me.

“The first time he called me was six years ago when he wanted to buy me. For me, playing for him is really the realisation of a dream.

“You see his teams and you understand that you can, as an individual and as a collective, learn a lot and improve a lot.

“I feel I have grown a lot thanks to him and his staff but this is just the beginning. We have to improve and Conte is the coach to do it.

“I love being in Italy, it’s the best country I’ve ever been in. Italians welcomed me with open arms.

“Even the football has helped me improve. Italian football is much more tactical. I study how a defender plays, how he positions himself in a position or how he reacts in certain situations.

“After training I stay 15 to 20 minutes with the coaching staff so I am prepared for any situation.”
