5. Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan) – £73M
Romelu Lukaku’s precarious future has finally seen its most predictable conclusion. The Manchester United striker sealed a switch Inter Milan in much hustle and bustle on the eve of the transfer deadline day of the Premier League.
As for Antonio Conte, the Italian has finally got the striker he chased vehemently during his time as Chelsea boss.
Lukaku’s departure was imminent given his abysmal performances for United last season. As per the reports, the Belgian was never a fitting piece in Solskjaer’s jigsaw and hence a transfer was inevitable.
Having seen a swap deal to Juventus fall through, Lukaku has now joined the revolution in Milan amidst many expectations. While the gigantic fee speaks volumes about his importance, it also invites the pressure of being a reliable goalscorer. Apparently, Lukaku is armed enough to face such a challenge as he kickstarts a new chapter of his career in Italy.
