    ´Inter means everything´ – Lukaku hopes for extended San Siro stay

    Romelu Lukaku stated: “Inter has always been in my heart” as he revealed his plans to extend his stay in Serie A beyond this season.

    Lukaku returned to Inter on a season-long loan last June, having scored just eight Premier League goals in the last campaign since joining the Blues for £97.5m.

    The Belgian striker has spent much of this season on the sidelines after suffering a hip injury in August, and was also unable to start World Cup action after returning in the middle of his country’s ill-fated group stage.

    Despite a disappointing second spell at the San Siro, Lukaku is keen to make his reunion with Inter permanent after being greeted again by Nerazzurri supporters.

    “Inter fans are really special; For me, they are the best I have seen. Even if we have problems, they are always ready to help the team,” Lukaku told Sky Sport.

    “I thought they were still mad at me, but they know that Inter has always been in my heart, even if I left.

    “I had several conversations with my teammates; I told them the truth about why I left and why I returned.

    “I hope to stay in the future. For me, Inter means everything. Now I have to do everything necessary together with the team for Inter to win. Then we’ll see.”

    Inter will resume their Serie A campaign with a massive game against Scudetto favorites Napoli on Wednesday, with fifth-placed Simone Inzaghi’s team 11 points behind the leaders.

    Despite Napoli’s significant lead at the summit, Lukaku is adamant that Inter continue to struggle to repeat their 2020-21 Scudetto triumph.

    “As long as the team hasn’t lifted a trophy, anything is possible,” Lukaku said. “The fact of the matter is that anything is possible in football.

    “Do I believe it? You must believe in the impossible. People say it’s impossible for us, we’ll see at the end of the season.

    “Now no one raised it, we are still there and there are six months left. The championship ends on June 6, January 4 is not yet!”
