New Inter Milan striker, Romelu Lukaku has taken a sly dig at former club Manchester United, claiming that training with the Italian side is "real work" compared to his experiences in England with Everton, Chelsea and United.
The striker sealed a move to Italy on deadline day after United eventually accepted a £74million bid for the Belgian, in a move that was forced by the player himself who reportedly fell out with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 26-year-old has been training with Inter and despite being there for less than a week has revealed that he is already feeling the effects of sessions with Antonio Conte, which is way tougher than that of England.
"It's hard, man. It's different. In England, it's a lot of work. But over here, it's real work," Lukaku said when asked on the difference between training in England and Italy.
Lukaku has already been in action for his new club and has made a promising start in Italy, scoring four goals during Inter's 8-0 friendly victory over Virtus Bergamo over the weekend. His departure will definitely be felt by United who for whom he netted 42 goals in just 96 games and will be hoping to make the same impact for Inter.
