Romelu Lukaku sent a message to thank the Inter fans after moving back to Chelsea this transfer window.
It was now secret in the media that Thomas Tuchel was keen to add a striker to the attack this summer and it was also no secret that Lukaku was the man that he was most keen on.
And after months of speculation, the Belgian returned to the club last week and after sealing that move, he has told Inter fans that it was a chance of a lifetime to make a move back to the Blues.
Lukaku helped the Nerazzurri pick up their first Scudetto in 11 years and the fans were not happy to see their target man leave the club: “Dear Inter fans,” he wrote on Instagram. “Thank you…
“Thank you for loving me as one of you. Thank you for making me and my family feel at home.
“Thanks for the unconditional support and daily love. Thanks for motivating me even more after the first season.
“When I arrived at Inter, I immediately felt that I would do well for this club. The love and the welcome I received at Malpensa airport was the beginning of a beautiful story.
“I decided to never disappoint you every time I wore the Inter shirt. I gave 100 per cent of myself every day, in every training, but especially in the games, to make you happy.
“The first season ended as hard as possible, but you guys gave me the strength to keep pushing and we did it as a team, that’s why we became champions.
“I hope you understand my decision to move to Chelsea. It’s a chance of a lifetime for me and I think at this moment in my career, it’s the chance I have always dreamed of.
“One thing is certain, that I will remain an Interista forever, because without you I wouldn’t be the man and the player I am today.
“So, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love you. Thank you so much. Always, Forza Inter!”
