Chelsea’s new signing, Romelu Lukaku has begged Inter Milan fans to understand his ‘chance of a lifetime’ decision to leave San Siro and return to London this summer.
Lukaku made the appeal in a heartfelt message to Inter Milan fans on Sunday.
Lukaku wrote” Thank you for loving me as one of your own. Thank you for making me and my family feel at home in Milano. Thank you for the unconditional support and love on a daily basis. Thank you for motivating me even more after the first season,” Lukaku wrote.
“When I came to Inter, I immediately felt that I would do well for this club. The love and reception I received at Malpensa airport was the start of a beautiful story. “I made it my mission to never let you down every time I wore the Inter shirt. I gave 100% in every training session and every game so that I could make you proud.
“Our first season ended in the toughest possible way, but you guys gave me the strength to continue to keep pushing and we did it as a team. That’s why we became champions together.
“I hope you guys understand my decision to move on to Chelsea. It’s a chance of a lifetime for me and I think at this time in my career, it’s the chance I have always dreamed of. One thing is for sure and that is that I will always remain an Interista, because without you I wouldn’t be the player or man I am today.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love you. Thank you so much. Always, Forza Inter!”
