Legendary former Inter defender Beppe Bergomi believes that the return of Romelu Lukaku would be a decisive improvement for the Nerazzurri this summer.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, Bergomi noted that based on just a couple weeks of preseason training, Inter coach Simone Inzaghi noted that the Belgian was unlike any other player he’d worked with before.

Part of the reason why the possibility of bringing Lukaku back is so intriguing for the Nerazzurri is that they would know exactly what they are getting in the Belgian.

The 29-year-old had led the team for both goals and assists in the 2020-21 season, powering them to the Scudetto, and as Bergomi notes the striker’s decisive influence was key to settling many of the matches that allowed the Nerazzurri to win the Serie A title for the first time in eleven years.

Looking at the season just gone, Bergomi noted that “In November and December Inter played great football, but many times they lacked that player who could get the team up the pitch a little quicker, allowing them to defend a little deeper once they had the result, an emotional leader.”

“Lukaku was that player for two seasons at Inter,” he continued, “he was decisive.”

Bergomi noted that :Speaking with Inzaghi, he once he told me: ‘I coached him for fifteen days, I have never coached a player of such a high level.'”

“If you had to choose, first bring in Lukaku and then the rest follow,” Bergomi said.
