Romelu Lukaku joins Inter Milan from Manchester United

Serie A side Inter Milan have signed forward Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United

Inter Milan have confirmed the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United on a five-year contract for a fee of around £73m.

The Belgium international arrived in Italy for his medical on Wednesday and has now sealed his move to the San Siro on a deal until June 30 2024.

"Inter were the only club I wanted," Lukaku told their official website. "I'm here to bring the Nerazzurri back to the top."

Manchester United later confirmed the transfer on their website.

"Everybody would like to thank Romelu for his efforts at the club and pass on our best wishes for the future," read a short statement.

Lukaku had been training with his former club Anderlecht and the player's agent, Federico Pastorello, posted an Instagram image of himself and the striker on a private jet on Wednesday evening with the caption: "Ready to take off...direction Milan", and the location set at Brussels Airport.

The 26-year-old had been linked with a move to another Serie A side - Juventus - earlier in the transfer window.

But that would have formed part of a swap deal with forward Paulo Dybala which eventually fell through.

Lukaku leaves Old Trafford having scored 42 goals in 96 matches for United after joining from Everton for £75m in July 2017.
