Romelu Lukaku has dispelled doubts regarding his future by emphatically committing to Italian champions Inter Milan.
The Big Belgian has been a big hit since joining Inter for £74m in 2019, scoring 64 goals in 95 games for the club.
After powering the Nerazzurri to their first Serie A title in 11 years, there has been speculation that the 28-year-old could be sold due to ongoing cost cutting at the San Siro club.
Champions League winners Chelsea were rumoured to be prepared to break the bank for their former striker.
“I am staying,” he told Belgian TV. “I feel good at Inter.”
Inter’s Chinese owners Suning are seeking to cut costs, a move that led to manager Antonio Conte quitting last week with former Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi soon to be announced as his replacement.
“I’ve already had contact with the man who becomes our new manager,” the former Manchester United and Chelsea forward told Belgian station VTM.
“Maybe I shouldn’t say that yet. It was a very positive conversation. There’s also the challenge of doing it again (winning the league).”
Lukaku is presently in camp with Belgium, the world’s top-ranked side, ahead of Euro 2020.
Roberto Martinez’s side has been drawn in Group B along with Russia, Denmark and Finland.
