The red-hot Belgian has started life like a house on fire at Inter Milan and he looks determined to make Man United regret their decision to let him leave Old Trafford.
📊 Lukaku since 2012/13
Much-maligned during his time at Man United, the criticism hasn't stopped Lukaku from churning out consistently good goal returns, season on season.

The big Belgian was often criticised for his poor first touch during his spell in England, especially at Man United where a hefty price tag and increased expectations created even more pressure for him to deliver the goods. However, a record that sees him having notched 20+ goals in four consecutive campaigns in all competitions in England with Everton and then Man United is that of a top-level striker.
Lukaku will only be 27 in May, which means that he's more or less approaching his prime and it looks as though his best years will be spent with Inter in Italy as they attempt to challenge Juventus for the Scudetto and make progress in Europe under Antonio Conte.
With 20 goals already under his belt across his appearances in the Champions League, Serie A and Coppa Italia, Romelu Lukaku is going from strength to strength and continuing to silence the doubters.
It doesn't get much bigger for Inter and their supporters than the Milan Derby, aka the Derby della Madonnina, and that's next on their horizon. Lukaku will have his new favourite strike partner Lautaro Martínez back alongside him too, with the Argentinian having served a one-match suspension.
