AS Roma striker Romelu Lukaku can expect to receive a similar welcome to the one Ronaldo endured when returning as an Inter Milan foe.
The Beneamata will host the capital side on Sunday evening in the most anticipated clash of the Serie A weekend.
The Nerazzurri will be looking to maintain their top spot in the standings while the Giallorossi hope to enhance their position in the table.
Nevertheless, the main plot revolves around Lukaku and his return to the Giuseppe Meazza.
Last summer, Inter were negotiating a deal with Chelsea to bring the striker back on a permanent basis. Afterwards, the Nerazzurri learned that Lukaku was also in talks with rivals Juventus and AC Milan.
Eventually, the Belgian joined Roma on loan. However, this saga left a bitter taste in the mouths of Inter supporters.
So as La Gazzetta dello Sport (via FcInterNews) explains, Inter’s Curva Nord supporters will distribute 30 thousand whistles on Sunday.
The fans aim to make a deafening noise that irks Lukaku every time he touches the ball.
As the source tells it, Brazilian legend Ronaldo endured a similar “welcome” when he returned as an opponent to Inter while donning Milan’s jersey.

Il Fenomeno left the Nerazzurri in 2002 to join Real Madrid and then signed for the Rossoneri in 2007.
Although he managed to score, Inter won that Derby della Madonnina with two goals to one.
On another note, the report notes that referee Fabio Maresca will decide whether or not the fans’ whistles are interfering with his.
The source explains that the match official is the only one who can intervene in this case.
