Belgium goal machine Romelu Lukaku has hinted that he has no plan of leaving Italian serie A champions Inter Milan this summer despite transfer interest from European Champions Chelsea.

The 28-year-old has enjoyed a stellar season in Italy helping Antonio Conte’s side to the Scudetto, bringing an end to Juventus’ nine-year domestic winning cycle.

His 24 goals in 36 Serie A appearances earned him the league’s MVP award and attracted the interest of Chelsea and Manchester City for a return to the Premier League.

However, speaking from Belgium’s training camp ahead of Euro 2020, Lukaku confirmed he will not be looking to pursue a move away from San Siro in the summer despite Conte’s exit and Simone Inzaghi’s impending arrival as head coach.

“Yes, I am staying,” he told Dutch broadcaster VTM.

“I’ve already had contact with the man who normally becomes our new manager. Maybe I shouldn’t say that yet… but it was a very positive conversation.”

“There’s also the challenge of doing it again [winning the league with Inter]. I feel good at Inter.
