Confirmed: the amount Inter Milan paid for Romelu Lukaku

Inter Milan have published their financial books for the season, and it shows they haven’t paid the initially announced fee for Belgian striker, Romelu Lukaku.

When Lukaku joined the Nerazzurri last summer, it was believed the deal cost £74 million, however, the club’s financial books reveal they paid just £66.75 million.

What this means is that the Red Devils didn’t recoup from the Belgian’s sale as expected, with at least, £7 million lost.

The reason for this could be performance or achievement-related, because clearly, Lukaku is enjoy the best goalscoring season of his playing career.

Since joining the Serie A, the former Manchester United striker has netted 23 times in the competition, despite making only 35 appearances.

United, however, have shown they’re managing well without Lukaku, with the likes of Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford scoring enough to help the club secure Champions League football next season.
