Asked if he was frustrated at Inter’s failure to sign Lukaku, Conte said: “I think frustration is a big word. Lukaku is United’s player, this is the reality.

“I like this player, but also in the past, when I was Chelsea’s coach, and I tried to bring him in Chelsea. But today Lukaku is a player of United and this the reality and the truth

“I think that in this moment we are talking about a player of another club and for this reason it’s right not to talk about Lukaku, because he’s a player of United.

“I consider this player important to us to have a great improvement, but at the same time there is a transfer market. We know our situation at the moment and we will see what happens.”
