Romelu Lukaku's impressive Inter Milan highlights show he's improved since leaving Man Utd
Eyebrows were raised when Romelu Lukaku moved from Manchester United to Inter Milan for a club-record £80m last summer.
He'd failed to set the world alight at Old Trafford but did score a respectable 42 goals in 96 appearances.
