Samuel Eto’o Speaks As Lukaku Dumps Man United For Inter Milan

Former Cameroon striker, Samuel Eto’o, has backed Romelu Lukaku to continue to shine at Inter Milan, following his club-record move to the Serie A side.

Lukaku ended his two-year spell at Manchester United on Thursday, joining Antonio Conte’s Inter in a reported €80million deal before the Premier League’s transfer window closed.

The 26-year-old had been linked with an exit, since United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made clear it clear that he preferred Marcus Rashford upfront.

Eto’o, who was part of Inter’s treble-winning season under Jose Mourinho in 2009/2010, played alongside Lukaku during his spell at Chelsea has tipped the Belgian to succeed at San Siro.

“Welcome to the Inter Milan Romeo. More than a team, it’s a family you join.

“There, you will rub yourself with stars, so there is no doubt that you will continue to shine.

“Good luck in this new adventure that I hope [will be] filled with goals. Make us proud little brother,” Eto’o wrote via Instagram.
