Romelu Lukaku was cost a move to Juventus by Paulo Dybala, according to the Belgian striker’s agent.
Lukaku’s former employers Manchester United had reportedly agreed a deal with the Turin giants for the striker to head to the Juventus Stadium, with Dybala going the other way to join the Red Devils, according to Sky In Italy.
However, the move apparently broke down, leaving Lukaku to instead move to Inter Milan, where has found great success in his debut campaign with 17 Serie A goals.
Federico Pastorello, the agent of the Belgian forward, told Sky In Italy: “Lukaku is wearing the Inter Milan shirt and not the Juventus one because Juventus didn’t end up finding an agreement between Dybala and Manchester United.
“Juventus had done an incredible job in trying to get him. They have been the best club for its organisation, but also trophies won. Every season it wins something. Lukaku at Juventus would have made many people happy.”
The Serie A season is currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, with no real information having yet been released on when the league is expected to resume.
However, Lukaku is still amongst the favourites to be named the top scorer come the end of the campaign – whenever that may be. The Belgian can be backed at a price of 20/1 with Paddy Power.
