Romelu Lukaku might have been playing for Juventus instead of Inter Milan if Juventus sold Dybala to Manchester United, his agent has said.
The agent revealed that the fact that the Belgian joined Inter is because the move for Dybala to join the Red Devils failed to materialize.
According to him, Lukaku immediately noticed the affection and warmth of the Inter Milan fans compared to those at Juve and that also made a huge difference.
He added that Lukaku joining Juventus would have pleased many fans but Antonio Conte was a major factor in his decision to join Milan.
His words, “If Lukaku is wearing the Inter shirt today, it’s only because of Paulo Dybala’s failure to join Manchester United.”
“Romelu wanted to leave the Premier League and move to a club where he felt loved,”
“He immediately noticed the affection and warmth of the Inter fans compared to those of Juve, and this made the difference.
“Lukaku’s arrival at Juve would have pleased many fans, but for Inter his engagement instead represented a turning point after the arrival of Antonio Conte, the intention to try to start a winning cycle.
“He perceived this immediately, even on social media. He felt wanted at Inter. Conte put a lot of pressure on the club to have the player.”
