From what I recall. He always bigged up Serie A before he even went theredid he want to go to Italy or realise he couldn’t have gone anywhere else?
would Bayern, Dortmund, Real, Barca, Athletic Madrid, or PSG want him? No.
would anyone in the top half of the PL have wanted him? No.
I’m no fan of Lukaku that’s clear. This is not meant as a criticism - but he (and his agent) are very good at spinning the story.
Italy was the only place he could realistically go.
