ROMELU LUKAKU looked a new man in his first training session back with Inter Milan.

The striker appeared full of joy and relief after ‘coming home’ on loan following his nightmare move to Chelsea.

Lukaku looked up to the sky, smiling broadly, drinking in his return.

Chelsea’s record £97.5million buy then chatted intently with Lautaro Martinez as they prepare to renew their partnership up front.

Lukaku, 29, relished the familiar surroundings at Como as he took a full part in training.

The Belgium hero is back with Inter in a £7million one-year temporary deal, just ten months after leaving for Stamford Bridge.

After revealing it was ‘like coming home’ the ex-Manchester United and Everton ace suggested he has never felt more welcome.

He said: “My family and I were so happy here thanks to the people, the fans and my team-mates.

“From the first day I arrived here, everyone helped me settle in. I’m very happy.

“I kept my home here when I went to England, so that means something. I’m pleased to be back and now I can’t wait to get out there with my team-mates.

“It’s an amazing feeling. What we achieved here a year ago was fantastic.

“That goes for the team, the fans and also me personally.

“Inter have given me so much and I hope to do even better than last time.

“It’s now time to work hard as a squad and hopefully do even better than before.”
