Lukaku arrived in Milan in the early hours of Thursday morning to undergo a medical after Inter agreed a club record £74 million with United. He has signed a five-year contract at Inter.
He had been strongly linked with a move to Juventus, but they failed to strike terms with United.
Lukaku enjoyed two seasons at United following his £75 million transfer from Everton in 2017 but he'll now ply his trade in Italy, a league he's dreamed of playing in.
"When I left Chelsea I had the opportunity to go to Juventus," the 26-year-old said in April
"I don't know why, but I didn't feel it. Something didn't convince me. The next day, Conte left Juventus.
"Serie A is a dream, it would really be a dream. I hope I can play there at some point, although right now I'm focused on United and finishing fourth."
He added: "It was the UEFA Cup Final between Inter and Lazio [in 1998].
"When I saw how Ronaldo rounded the goalkeeper I realised that if I wanted to become a professional, I would have to train very hard."
How will Lukaku fare in Serie A? Let us know.
