That is according to ESPN FC pundit and ex-Liverpool full-back Steve Nicol.

Lukaku has this week claimed new Inter Milan manager Conte is the best manager around.

“Antonio Conte going back to Inter Milan, which is really good because he is, to me, the best manager in the world,” the Belgian striker said.

Lukaku has never hidden his desire to play in Serie A in the past and is linked with a move to the San Siro.

Nicol believes it would be a good move for all parties after a difficult season last term for the Manchester United man.

However, he has questioned why Lukaku came out and said what he did about Conte.

And he doubts whether Conte will be best pleased with the comments.

“Certainly for Lukaku, yeah,” Nicol said.

“‘Best manager in the world’?

“I’m sorry, I think even Conte will be embarrassed when he reads that.

“Even if he’s tapped him up and said to him ‘look, I’m going to try and get you’.

“He’ll be going ‘why did you open your mouth? Keep your mouth shut’.

“But, to answer your question, yeah perfect for everybody I guess.

“They’ve got to get rid of [Mauro] Icardi.

“Is the Italian league capable of taking care of the physicality of Lukaku?

“We go on about what he can’t do. But the physicality of the guy, I’m not so sure that the Italian teams will be able to handle him.”
