Lukaku reveals he spoke with Ronaldo before sealing United exit
- Lukaku made up his mind about leaving last season.
- The Belgian spoke to Ronaldo before moving to Italy.
- The Portuguese assured him about the quality of Serie A.
Speaking to The New York Times, the Belgian said: "Since March I had made the decision to start from scratch, to rebuild my reputation.
"I spoke to Cristiano Ronaldo before I came to Inter, and Ronaldo told me: 'Serie A is the most defensive league in the world'.
"He told me he scored goals wherever he went, but Italy is the most difficult. And if Cristiano Ronaldo thinks so it must be true."
Lukaku left United for Inter Milan on deadline day in the summer, joining the Serie A side for a fee of £74 million.
The Belgian has recently hit out at his United critics by saying that whatever he did at Old Trafford was never good enough for some people.
