Romelu Lukaku has completed a £73million move to Inter Milan from Manchester United.  

Lukaku has signed a contract until 2024 with Inter and hopes to take them back to the top of the Italian game.

'Inter were the only club I wanted, because Inter is Not For Everyone,' he said. 'I'm here to bring the Nerazzurri back to the top

The Belgian had been the subject of heavy interest from Antonio Conte's side and a breakthrough was struck between the two clubs on Wednesday night. United have also managed to secure a sell-on percentage in the deal.

Lukaku was seen coming through the terminal building of an Italian airport in the early hours of Thursday morning.

The 26-year-old Belgium international flew to Italy on Wednesday night to undergo a medical in Milan on Thursday. He was pictured with his agent on a private jet, Pastorello writing on Instagram: 'Ready to take off .... direction Milano'.

It follows Lukaku's attempts to force a move this week by training for two days with his old club Anderlecht in Brussels without United's permission.

The player ignored the Premier League club's demands to return and he has been fined two weeks' wages – approximately £400,000 – for his actions.

Lukaku had also been ordered to train with United's Under-23s by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after upsetting his manager by posting confidential sprint stats on his Twitter account last week. 

However, he failed to show up at Carrington for the second day in a row on Wednesday, and was nowhere to be seen at Anderlecht's Neerpede complex where he has been training with the club's Under 18s. There was also no sign of the player's black Bentley at his house nearby.

Lukaku has missed most of pre-season and all six of United's warm-up games with a mystery ankle injury that has coincided with his attempts to secure a move to Italy. 

After spending close to £150m on Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Dan James this summer, United insist they are comfortable going into the new season with their existing squad. Solskjaer's side kick off the new season at home to Chelsea on Sunday.
