Romelu Lukaku hints at Manchester United exit as he labels new Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte the 'best manager in the world' and admits he 'loves Italy' Romelu Lukaku has moved a step closer to leaving Manchester United for Italy after describing Inter Milan's new coach Antonio Conte as 'the best manager in the world'.

United are prepared to listen to offers for the Belgium international but want to recoup the transfer fee they paid Everton in the summer of 2017.
