Romelu Lukaku slammed by Inter Milan legend Milito for ‘breaking his promise’ and leaving in Chelsea transfer

INTER MILAN legend Diego Milito has lashed out at Romelu Lukaku for making false promises to the club’s fans before his exit.

Before his record £97million return to Chelsea, Lukaku had told Inter fans he had no intention of leaving the club.

The Belgian striker had even reportedly snubbed a £165,000-a-week offer from the Blues to see out the remainder of his Inter contract which ended in 2024.

But the 28-year-old had a change of heart and completed his switch back to West London in August, to Militio’s disappointment.

Although the Argentine, who scored 62 goals in 128 appearances for Inter, has no issue with Lukuka deciding to leave, he does have a problem with him not sticking to his word.

Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, reported by Marca, he said: “There is one thing you should never do, make a promise you can’t keep.”

If Lukaku, who scored 47 goals in 72 appearances for the Serie A giants, was honest about his desire to leave, then no one would be mad at him because he had given so much to the club, Milito claimed.

He added: “A player like him, who has given so much, can decide to go elsewhere, but the fans are disappointed precisely because of those comments.”

It was reported by SunSport in early August that Lukaku was keen on a move back to Chelsea as he had unfinished business there.

The striker was not given a decent crack at proving himself when he was a Blues player at the start of his career, before being flogged to Everton for £28m in 2014.

Lukaku made just ten Prem appearances for the Blues having joined as an 18-year-old from Anderlecht three years earlier.

But this time around Lukaku was certain he’d be the main man at the club as boss Thomas Tuchel looks to add the Premier League to Chelsea’s trophy cabinet.

And following his amazing start for the Blues this season, scoring three goals in as many games, the Belgian may help Tuchel’s wish come true.
