Lukaku agent reveals Dybala Manchester United failed transfer
Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku’s agent Federico Pastorello claims Paulo Dybala transfer to Manchester United in the summer failed and departure would have made room for the Belgium at Juventus.
Dybala was linked with both Ole Gunnar Solskjaer charges and Tottenham but instead refused to leave Juventus with Lukaku opting for Inter Milan due to the fans.
Pastorello told Sky Sport Italia: “If Lukaku is wearing the Inter shirt today, it’s only because of Paulo Dybala’s failure to join Manchester United.”
“Romelu wanted to leave the Premier League and move to a club where he felt loved,” Pastorello said.
“He immediately noticed the affection and warmth of the Inter fans compared to those of Juve, and this made the difference.
“Lukaku’s arrival at Juve would have pleased many fans, but for Inter his engagement instead represented a turning point after the arrival of Antonio Conte, the intention to try to start a winning cycle.
“He perceived this immediately, even on social media. He felt wanted at Inter. Conte put a lot of pressure on the club to have the player.”
