There is a lot of talk about the summer sale of the champion team, which is being prepared at Inter. There are also rumors that the attacking tandem of Lautaro Martinez - Romelu Lukaku could break up, that is, that one of the two of them could leave the club in order to stabilize the financial situation.
As things stand after the statement for the Belgian VTM, it will not be Lukaku. "I'm staying at the club. I'm feeling good at Inter," said the 28-year-old. With 24 goals, as the second scorer of the championship, he helped Inter to get the first title of the champion of Italy after 11 years.
He had great cooperation with Antonio Conte, but the departure of the Italian expert did not influence Lukaku to think about leaving the club. The level I reached is because of Conte. He often repeats tactical exercises, while at the beginning he worked individually with me and through various videos helped me to progress tactically."
"His criticisms are always constructive, he never 'kills' me just to kill me, but to make me a better player." "When I heard that he was leaving, it was difficult for me because we are a team that longs for success.
And that chain suddenly broke. "
Chelsea was interested
Conte is succeeded by Simone Inzaghi, an expert who is also forcing a 3-5-2 formation. The Belgian is determined to stay and repeat the success from the recently completed season under the command of the new coach.
"I have already talked to the new coach. Maybe I shouldn't talk about it, but it was a positive conversation. Together with him, I will accept the challenge of defending the Scudetto," Lukaku said. These messages seem like closing the door to the European champion since in recent weeks there has been talking about the desire of Thomas Tuchel to return the Belgian to the ranks of the former club.
The transfer period has not started, but after these words, the future of one of the best strikers in Europe is in Inter. His contract expires only in 2024. And this summer, his initial focus will be on the European Championship with Belgium.
"I don't care how we win, it could be uninteresting matches, but victories are the only thing that counts." Finally, when asked if he is the best football player in the world at this moment, he answers: "No, but I am in the top 3, or the top 5."
