Romelu Lukaku agreed terms on a contract with Juventus just a day before posting a letter to Inter following their Champions League final defeat, Gianluca Di Marzio details.
The Nerazzurri decided to let go of the Belgian striker last month after revealing his secret talks with the Whites, a situation that infuriated both the management and the squad.
Di Marzio highlighted how Lukaku agreed a deal with Juventus on June 12, just two days after Inter lost the Champions League final to Manchester City.
Furthermore, just a day later the Belgian forward posted a message to Inter’s fans, thanking them for their support and expressing his “love for this beautiful club”.
Corriere dello Sport reports that numerous phone calls have now taken place between Lukaku and Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri in recent weeks and a deal could be completed next week.
Chelsea are expected to increase their bid for the Bianconeri and a swap deal could be completed, with Dusan Vlahovic heading to London for Lukaku and around €40m.
