Conte insists Inter paid Man Utd far less than £73m reported for Romelu Lukaku

Antonio Conte hailed new signing Romelu Lukaku after the striker scored on his debut as Inter Milan made an incredible start in Serie A with a 4-0 win over promoted Lecce on Monday.

'He is a gentle giant, a giant with a smile. He's ready to work for the team.

'Let's not forget Lukaku cost €65m to be paid over five years, so when people talk about big money spent, it wasn't even that much.'

"He's just 26, has margins for improvement, he's got to work. He must take advantage even more of the skills he has, because in my opinion he's got skills that he hasn't shown yet, he hasn't shown everything yet, in his football career."

Marcelo Brozovic, with an incredible curling shot, and Stefano Sensi gave Inter Milan a 2-0 half-time lead before Lukaku, signed from the Red devils this month, opened his account on the hour.
