The owner of the pizzeria, Eulo Mattioni, where the German ate with his partner in Perugia took a selfie to commemorate the moment and said the Belgium forward was mentioned.
Mattioni told Gazzetta dello Sport: “Tuchel was a really nice person. We had a bit of a laugh over the Lukaku situation.
“He ordered two pizzas: one for him and one for his partner and was complimentary about our restaurant and location.”
Lukaku spent two seasons at Inter before returning to Chelsea last summer in a deal worth a reported €115 million but failed to nail down a regular starting spot under Tuchel and appears keen making a return to the Nerazzurri.
