“It seems clear to me that there’s a feeling between him and Conte,” he told Corriere dello Sport. “The transfer to the Nerazzurri made him feel more at ease.

“We are talking about a top player. To play for his club or Belgium doesn’t change a lot for him. He has always scored and let others score.”

The former Everton coach seems certain the hitman “wasn’t happy” at Old Trafford, judging by his performances for the Nerazzurri.

“During the last few months at United, he wasn’t happt. Now he seems happy, at the centre of a project.”

Inter are preparing to face Roma at San Siro tomorrow, with Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez both in hot form.
