Tuchel’s fantastic speech showed Lukaku the love he missed at United

Lukaku joined United from Everton in 2017 for £75m amid much fanfare but only two years later, and a change of manager with Jose Mourinho having been sacked in December 2018 and replaced with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Belgium international was sold to Inter Milan.

Under Conte, Lukaku’s game hit another level, scoring 64 goals in 95 games and helping Inter to their first Serie A title since 2010.

The agent said: “What I really think is the two years of work done with Mr Conte completed him tactically because I really think he is now a player who is able to score in all different ways: left, right, header. . .

“He felt wanted with Conte and probably this is what he was not able to feel at Manchester United, unfortunately, but this happens.

“Actually is is the same reason why he decided to come here [Chelsea] because Tuchel really made a fantastic speech with him and gave him the feeling that he really wanted him, that he was the perfect last piece in this fantastic puzzle. It’s very crucial for a player to decide to go to a team where the coach really want him.”

Lukaku made a blistering start to his second spell at Chelsea, scoring four times in his first four matches. But the goals have since dried up with his last strike coming in the 2-1 Champions League win over Zenit St Petersburg on September 14.
