Romelo Lukaku‘s agent, Federico Pastorello had explained the unknown mysteries behind the player’s move to Italy. The Belgian striker moved to Inter Milan from Manchester United after the Italian club paid the sum of €65 million to seal the deal. However, his agent has revealed that the 26-year-old attacker would have been wearing the shirt for Juventus if only Paulo Dybala moved to Manchester United.
Before Romelo Lukaku’s move to Inter Milan there has been some rumor that Juventus player, Paulo Dybala would be joining the red devils in exchange for Romelo Lukaku. Pastorello explained that Lukaku might have been playing for Juventus assuming the deal to swap the Belgian star for the Argentine player worked out between the two teams.
Paulo Dybala’s move to England was foiled by his decision to remain in Italy, he was linked with both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. However, many critics believed that if the Argentine attacker would be coming to England, Old Trafford would be his most preferred destination.
Pastorello disclosed this while having a chat with Sky Sport Italia. He stated equivocally that Lukaku is wearing the Juventus Jersey today because Paulo Dybala rejected his move to Manchester United. He said: “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,”
However, Pastorello explained that the type of reception that Lukaku received in Inter Milan is second to none. He would not get anything better than that even if he went to Juventus, Pastorello said.
“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.”
It is worthy to know that while Paulo Dybala has also been tested positive for the novel coronavirus, Romelo Lukaku has been placed in self-isolation after he came into contact with Juventus defender, Daniele Rugani during the Serie A match between Juventus and Inter Milan.
