New Chelsea FC striker Romelu Lukaku has taken a slight dig on his former employers Manchester United.

The Belgian has been narrating the events that took place prior to his departure from Inter Milan and credited the Serie A champions for getting him out of the ‘deep hole’.

In an interview with HLN via Sky Sports (h/t Manchester Evening News), Lukaku said that he was only going to leave I Nerazzurri for the Blues and went to Simone Inzaghi’s office when he had realized that Chelsea were seriously interested in him.

“I was in a deep hole at Man United. I didn’t want to go behind Inter’s back. So after training, I went to Inzaghi’s office. I didn’t want to ruin the atmosphere because I was no longer with my head in Milan. So I asked him: please find an agreement,” he said.

Lukaku has been very critical of United since he left Old Trafford for the Serie A seasons ago. He joined the Red Devils back in 2017 in a deal worth ÂŁ75million and scored 42 goals and 13 assists in 96 games for the English giants.

While he struggled at United to win trophies, he was to help Inter to a league win in his second season there in what was their first Scudetto in 11 years.
