Romelu Lukaku was signed as a highly rated 18-year-old about a decade ago, and he was seen as the replacement for the legendary Didier Drogba.

Lukaku never fulfilled his dream of excelling at Chelsea, but went on to excel on loan. He had since moved to Manchester United and then Inter Milan, where he did well to win the Serie A.

Lukaku has been linked with a return to Stamford Bridge after a phenomenal season, but he has turned down that opportunity and claims that he’s happy with the Italian champions.

“Inter. Inter. I have won a title with Inter,” Lukaku told HLN.

“That was a childhood dream too. At one team I had success, at the other one it was a failure.”

He had blamed former Blues boss Andre Villas Boas for not giving him the opportunity at Stamford Bridge.

“Di Matteo told me that I would stay with the group until after the final,” Lukaku told Het Laatste Nieuws, as reported by AD.

“He thought everyone should come along, including the ones who were suspended and the few boys who were not in the Champions League squad.

“I am also grateful to him for that. This win is one of the things I’ve always dreamed about.

“You want to celebrate something like that with the team at that time. That is nice in itself at the age of nineteen.

“I am happy for the whole club, but there is one man who took a lot from me: the previous trainer (Villas-Boas). I will never forgive him for that.”
