Romelu Lukaku completed his transfer switch to Inter Milan.

Inter Milan has signed Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United for a club-record deal of 80m euros (£74m) on a five-year contract.

Lukaku became third most expensive signing by an Italian club behind Juventus attackers Cristiano Ronaldo (£99.2m) and Gonzalo Higuain (£75.3m).

Lukaku joined Manchester United from Everton in 2017 for a fee of £75m, he made 96 appearances for The Red Devils and scored 42 times.

The 26-year-old Belgian said: Inter were the only club I desired, and I’m here to take the Nerazzurri back to the top.

Lukaku played 45 games for United last season and bags in 15 goals, but he’s often ignored by his former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in service of England starlet Marcus Rashford.

The Belgium international player does not feature in any of Manchester United pre-season tour due to an ankle injury.

Roberto Martinez, Belgium manager said ahead of this summer that Lukaku has to withdraw from the Premier League club.

Inter’s new head coach Antonio Conte had made the Belgian striker his top transfer priority this summer window, having been wanting to work with Lukaku during his tenure at Chelsea.
