Record-breaking Lukaku propelling Inter's European dream

  Record-breaking Lukaku propelling Inter's European dream MILAN — A record-breaking Romelu Lukaku is leading Inter Milan's chase for its first trophy in nine years. Eyebrows were raised last year when Inter shelled out a club record of around 65 million euros ($73 million) plus 13 million euros ($15 million) in bonuses for Lukaku, who had had a disappointing final season at Manchester United. However, Lukaku swiftly developed a scintillating partnership with Lautaro Martínez and their goals helped Inter sustain a title challenge before eventually finishing second in Serie A, a point behind Juventus. Inter scored 81 league goals — well above the paltry 57 it managed in the previous campaign.

Antonio Conte will stay on as Inter Milan's manager after a "constructive meeting" with club president Steven Zhang on Tuesday, the Italian side announced.

The feisty coach had suggested he could leave the Nerazzurri in the wake of their 3-2 loss to Sevilla in last week's Europa League final.

Conte, who led Inter to a second-place finish in Serie A during his first year at the San Siro, voiced frustrations with the front office throughout the campaign. His comments last week, when he thanked the club for "the opportunity to have this experience," led many to believe he would move on after just a single season in Milan.

Antonio Conte will remain as the Inter Milan manager for the next two years after having a " constructive meeting " with the club 's president , Steven Zhang.

But it appears Tuesday's discussion with Zhang has placated Conte.
