Romelu Lukaku’s goals against Lazio on Sunday cost Inter €1 million, according to an Italian newspaper report today.

As per Gazzetta dello Sport, the Belgian international’s double at San Siro triggered the payment of one of the many add-ons that were included in the deal that took Lukaku from Manchester United to the Nerazzurri in the summer of 2019.

Lukaku joined Inter as part of a club-record deal worth €65 million plus €10 million in bonuses.

The Milan-based paper did not specify what particular bonus the Belgian had triggered but it was presumably related to Lukaku surpassing a certain number of goals in an Inter shirt.

Lukaku has set his sights on winning the Serie A title with Antonio Conte this season and Inter took a big step towards the Scudetto last weekend, overtaking AC Milan after they lost at Spezia.

The 27-year-old is playing an absolutely pivotal role for the Nerazzurri, scoring a goal every 103 minutes on average this season.

Lukaku, who is contracted to the club until 2024, has made 29 appearances in all competitions in the 2020-21 campaign, scoring 22 goals and providing four assists.

Gazzetta noted that despite Inter having to shell out another €1 million to Manchester United, Big Rom’s scintillating form ensured ‘the fortune was all theirs’.

Former Inter striker Jurgen Klinsmann today set Lukaku the target of scoring another 10 goals before the end of the season.
