Romelu Lukaku approached by Inter Milan fan asking about his move to Juventus
| Last updated
Romelu Lukaku has made a promise to an Inter Milan fan who asked him about his move to Juventus.
Lukaku has been heavily linked with the Bianconeri after Inter elected against signing him permanently following a stint on loan last season.
Belgium's record goalscorer is currently still a Chelsea player and contracted until 2026 after returning to the club for a massive £97.5m fee but is not part of Mauricio Pochettino's plans and was left at home for the pre-season tour of the United States.
He is on the lookout for a new club and Juventus emerged as potential suitors - something which was met by widespread opposition from the club's fans.
Some even staged a protest over the possible signing. Things have gone quiet, though a new report from Corriere dello Sport claims Juve haven't given up on acquiring Lukaku.
However, the man himself addressed the rumours after being approached by an Inter fan outside the Brussels sports centre.
Lukaku has been training at the base and briefly conversed with the Nerazzurri supporter, who told him, "See if you sign at Juventus, never say Forza Juventus."
The former Manchester United man indicated that the transfer won't be happening. Climbing back into his car, Lukaku replied: "No no never. I don't think the deal will go through."
Lukaku recently posted a cryptic message on Instagram, captioning a post, "When the hate don’t work they start telling lies…." in what many deemed to be a dig at media speculation suggesting Inter don't want him and that his teammates have given him the cold shoulder.
The stance of Inter ultras couldn't be clearer though, as they reacted furiously to news of him speaking to Juve and accused him of "betraying" the club.
A statement read: "Those who betrayed you will do it again, not because they enjoy it, but because it falls within their nature.
“Yes, because you Romelu betrayed all of us, who defended you to the sword during your difficult period.”
“We defended you when the fans of the team that sought you mocked you, now you repay us with a stab worthy of Brutus.
“You kissed the badge that is worth more than our lives to us and now like a vile cheap mercenary you're selling yourself to the highest bidder.
“Before being a champion you have to be a man. And you're not.”
Lukaku has also received reported interest from the Saudi Pro League and turned down a lucrative offer last month.
