Inter Milan forward Romelu Lukaku has completed his football transfer to Premier League club Chelsea. The Belgian footballer joined the European champions signing a four-year deal. After returning to the London club Lukaku praises Serie A, where he played two years for Scudetto winners.
After leaving Inter for Chelsea, Romelu Lukaku admits that Serie A is “tactically and technically a better league,” but “here in England, it’s all about the intensity.” “I don’t really talk about my personal ambitions but they lean with the club’s ambitions. That’s why I came back,” Lukaku told the official club website.
“Chelsea wants to keep winning, keep growing as a club and really dominate in England and Europe. That’s something that I wanted and I’m here now so it’s up to me to help the team achieve its potential,” the 28-year-old added.
Romelu Lukaku hit his stride at Inter, scoring 64 goals and providing 16 assists in 95 competitive appearances. He recently compared Serie A and the Premier League having played in both. “Italy is tactically and technically a better league but here in England, it’s all about the intensity. That’s what makes the difference, but it’s no problem for me because I’ve been here for eight years and I know what it’s all about,” Lukaku said.
“It’s not like I’m a new player coming in and not quite knowing what to expect. I know the league, I’ve scored a fair amount of goals here, but the past is the past and now we have to look forward,” he continued.
The Belgium international has completed his €115 million move to Stamford Bridge, a club he joined from Anderlecht ten years ago. Inter have largely dismantled the team that won the Scudetto in May, selling Achraf Hakimi to PSG and parting ways with coach Antonio Conte.
