Inter had won the title with the now 28-year-old up front, scoring 24 league goals and 30 in all competitions.

However, due to the financial trouble surrounding the club, Inter sold Lukaku to Chelsea for a reported club-record fee of £97.5m, with the players reported contract also making him the highest paid player at the club.
