Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku revealed that he turned down a move to Man City last season. The striker revealed that he decided to leave Inter only after his request for a new contract was rejected by Inter. Lukaku revealed that he was not happy with the situation he currently faces at Chelsea with boss Thomas Tuchel playing a system that does not suit him. Tuchel condemned the comments and believes that Lukaku looks far from unsettled at the club.
“When I was at Inter, at the end of the first year, I turned down an offer from Manchester City which was higher than Chelsea’s this summer,” Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku said. “I did it because it had only been a year, it wasn’t the right time to leave and I didn’t want to. I wanted to do something good for Inter because I have to say that Inter saved my career to some extent.”
“I was in a deep hole at Manchester United, things weren’t going well. I was a big investment for Inter but we did great things together,” he added. “So the second year after we won the Scudetto, I went to speak with club chiefs and asked for a new contract. I did it because I told myself I’m 28 years old, my family feels great in Milan, I still have my flat there, my mother and my son could come and live there and we would all feel comfortable.”
