- Lukaku left the Red Devils for Inter Milan last summer.
- He was 'really close' to joining Juventus before that move.
- The Nerazzurri' boss Antonio Conte was one of the major reasons why the Belgian decided to move to the Giuseppe Meazza instead of the Allianz Stadium.
Romelu Lukaku has revealed Inter Milan head coach Antonio Conte and his childhood affection for the likes of Adriano, Ronaldo [the Brazilian one] and Christian Vieri made him snub a move to Juventus last summer.
"I was close, really close [to joining Juve], but my mind was always set on Inter and the manager," he told Ian Wright's YouTube channel.
"As a kid, I looked up to Adriano, Ronaldo and [Christian] Vieri.
"Obviously when Inter came – and the manager Conte wanted me at Chelsea and Juve as well – I wanted to go there and see what it was like, keep my head down and work."
Lukaku left United for Inter in August. The 26-year-old scored 23 goals in 35 appearances for the Nerazzurri since then.
