Romelu Lukaku Calls Antonio Conte "The Best Manager In The World" Amid Inter Milan Interest
Romelu Lukaku has appeared to drop the biggest hint yet that he will be moving to Inter Milan by calling Antonio Conte the "best manager in the world".
The Italian has been appointed as Inter Milan manager, replacing the sacked Luciano Spalletti.
He returns to management after being dismissed by Chelsea at the end of the 2017/18 season.

Conte's already laid out his transfer plans with the Manchester United forward believed to be his No.1 target.
And amid interest from Inter Milan, the Belgium international has paid him a huge compliment.
"It's good to see Conte joined Inter, for me he is the best manager in the world," Lukaku said about the new Inter boss.
After scoring for Belgium against Scotland in a Euro qualifier, Lukaku revealed that he will speak to United about a potential transfer away from Old Trafford.
"I've already taken a decision about the future, but I can't reveal it because I have a contract with Manchester United and because I respect the club," he added.
"I am a big fan of Serie A, who knows me is aware that I wanted to play in the Premier League and that I also want to play in Serie A.
"Cristiano Ronaldo arrived in Italy last season, Sarri will go to Juve, Ancelotti is at Naples, the Serie A will be thrilling next season.
"My agent will speak with Manchester United. I've already taken my decision. The club need to decide but my agent wants the best for me, I am sure it'll be an agitated summer."
Lukaku's United days are numbered as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer favours Marcus Rashford up front. The United gaffer is prepared to offload him so he can reinvent in his team.
