Romelu Lukaku is convinced that his decision to leave Manchester United was for the good of both parties.

Romelu Lukaku signed for Man United from Everton in the summer of 2017.

In a career spanning over two seasons, Lukaku scored 42 for the Red Devils in 96 games. Unfortunately, the Belgian was unable to win any silverware. Eventually, he was shipped off to Inter Milan at his own request at the start of this season.

Recently, in an interview, Lukaku hinted that he had no regrets for leaving Old Trafford. He also suggested that Manchester United’s decision to promote their youngsters was a good step for the club. Therefore, his move to Inter worked for both himself and Man United.

“I made my decision around March. And I went to the manager’s office and told him it was time for me to find something else,” Lukaku told Sky Sports.

“I wasn’t performing and I wasn’t playing, I think it was better for both sides to go separate ways. I think I made the right decision.

“Manchester United has made space for the younger players to come through so I think it was a win-win situation for both of us.”
