Inter vice-president Javier Zanetti was asked about Romelu Lukaku’s failed return to Milan and his decision to join Roma.
The Nerazzurri legend did not mince words when recounting the negotiations that took place this summer in his interview with Marca.
“We wanted Lukaku to stay with us. Then things happened which we didn’t expect and we decided to withdraw from negotiations,” said Zanetti.
“Now Lukaku belongs to another club, and he is part of our past and as a club we must look to the future instead.”
