After the club took a strong stance on former captain Mauro Icardi, Lukaku has been Conte’s preferred choice to replace the polarizing Argentine.

After being linked with Inter for over a month and a half, it seems as though Lukaku will head over to Turin to join Juventus in a swap deal which sends Lukaku cash for Paolo Dybala.

Considering how Beppe Marotta had to repeatedly do damage control last season, this year one of the main targets for management has been to establish rules and expectations from everyone to avoid “Pazza Inter” moments.

Going from scoring his first goal in Champions League as a captain against finalists Spurs, to his meteoric fall to being unwanted by all but two Serie A clubs has been unfathomable to point where segments of Inter fan base are still divided.

In a press conference ahead of the pre-season match in Singapore against Manchester United in International Champions Cup, Antonio Conte criticized management for lack of activity in the transfer market and not having first-team strikers in training.

“I can’t deny we’re behind schedule with regards to the plans we’d made, so we need to get a move on.

Ever since becoming Inter manager, Antonio Conte has unapologetically admired Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.

Dating back to his time at Chelsea, he has been a fan of the Belgian striker.

Delayed integration into the team will mean the team is not ready to take on Lecce on match day one of 2019/20 Serie A season.

Sell Unwanted Players If sales must be made to sign players, Marotta and Ausilio have their work cut out for them.

With a month of the transfer window already gone, outgoing players who are not part of Conte’s plans must be sold so adequate replacements are brought in with enough time for Conte to have them ready to play on August 25th at San Siro against Lecce.
