Romelu Lukaku’s agent, Federico Pastorello, says he and his family received threats while he worked on it the Chelsea striker’s move of £ 97.5 million.

Lukaku, 28, left Inter Milan after helping the club end its 11-year wait for the 19th Italian title.

Pastorello says talks about the deal being “designed” or “forced” for financial gain “are misleading.”

“Many of those who insult and threaten me today have thanked me from the bottom of their hearts for bringing him to Milan,” he said.

“I have always accepted – and will continue to do so – confrontation and constructive criticism: they are part of the game for those who play a role with significant media relevance.

“What we absolutely cannot tolerate are the lies, insinuations, insults and threats we have received [also against my family and my daughters], which have far crossed the boundaries of civilization, decency and tolerance. “

Lukaku has scored 64 goals in 95 appearances in two seasons at San Siro, helping the Nerazzurri reach the first Scudetto since 2010 in their last term.

This move made the Belgian top scorer of all time the most expensive player ever to sell a Serie A team, and it comes at a time when the club faced with financial difficulties.external connection

Despite saying that he is happy to stay with the Italian champions, Lukaku changed his position earlier this month and told Inter that he wants to join Chelsea if the right offer is received.

“Believe it or not, the affection of the supporters and the special connection with the city of Milan made him think about it for a long time: but then, after he made his decision, he continued with conviction and determination,” Pastorello said.

“The economic aspect is a detail, but it is not the main factor that determines our choices and the choices of our clients.

“As for FC Internazionale, I can guarantee that Sport CEO Giuseppe Marotta, sporting director Piero Ausilio – as well as coach Simone Inzaghi, who worked on this – did everything in their power to avoid this transfer.

“But there are circumstances that go beyond decision-making frameworks and depend on the owner’s instructions.”
