The Belgian Romelu Lukaku, Italian champion with Inter Milan and best player in the last Serie A, returned to work with the Milanese team after enjoying his last days of vacation, waiting for the Argentine Lautaro Martínez to also rejoin , who will have a few extra days of rest after winning the Copa América.
Lukaku, author of 30 goals in the last season, trained with the rest of his teammates under coach Simone Inzaghi in view of the start of Serie A, set for August 21, Inter reported in an official note.
The Belgian striker, who chose the Turks and Caicos Islands of the Caribbean to spend his last leg of vacation, was allowed to join a few days late as he competed with his country’s team in the Eurocup, falling in the quarterfinals against Italy.
Inzaghi, Inter’s new coach to replace Antonio Conte, will also receive Lautaro Martínez in the next few days, who competed in the Copa América until July 10, when he won the final against Brazil.
Lukaku and Lautaro accumulated 24 and 17 goals, respectively, in the last Serie A and formed one of the best offensive couples in Europe.
Inter, which suffers millionaire losses due to the coronavirus pandemic, has sold the Moroccan Achraf Hakimi to Paris Saint Germain for about sixty million euros to alleviate his economic situation and try to keep his two stars for the next season. EFE (HN)
