Inter Milan sporting director, Javier Zanetti, has expressed disappointment with Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku, saying that he expected the player to “behave differently” regarding his future this summer.
The Serie A club were negotiating to bring Lukaku back on a permanent basis after a successful loan last season.
But talks with Inter have since collapsed and Lukaku could join Inter’s rivals Juventus in a potential swap with Dusan Vlahovic.
“Given what Inter have done for him, we expected him to behave differently, as a professional and as a man. He has the right to go where he wants, of course, but he could have told us that beforehand.
“Nobody is bigger than the club and when building a team, you always have to consider who you are bringing into the dressing room,” Zanetti told La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

Manchester United players recently showed support for teammate, Mason Greenwood, saying his return to the squad would be a welcome development, according to the UK Sun.
The Premier League club has been conducting an internal investigation for the last six months since the Crown Prosecution Service dropped charges of attempted rape and assault against the 21-year-old.
Greenwood has remained suspended by United for the last 18 months after being arrested in January 2022. Since then, he has not played for the Red Devils or trained at Carrington. But his team-mates believe he deserves a second chance.
According to the Sun, a senior official said: “All the players believe he deserves a second chance because he’s innocent in the eyes of the law.
“He didn’t have the opportunity to clear his name in court because the charges were dropped, so the players feel like he has been left in limbo. They know it will be difficult but they are willing to support him through it, and protect him.”
