Belgian attacker Romelu Lukaku went over his decision to join Roma in the summer after being linked with a move to Inter and Saudi Arabia.
During yesterday’s presser at Belgium’s training camp, Lukaku was asked about the hectic summer window he faced until Roma came and got him to sign a loan deal from Chelsea.
“There were some clubs I definitely wouldn’t go to. I was honored by the interest of Al Hilal, the biggest club in the Middle East. The league there will become one of the biggest in the world, but I didn’t want to leave Europe yet, I wasn’t convinced.”
“Then Roma called me. I also have to thank [Radja] Nainggolan for putting me in touch with the club. He told me all about Roma and the fans. Of course I also had many conversations with Mourinho before signing. Now I only think about the national team and Roma. Things are going well at the moment,” he added.
