Lukaku recently turned down a return to Inter Milan

Romelu Lukaku has shared a cryptic post to his Instagram as uncertainty around his future continues to rumble on.

Lukaku had been expected to make a permanent return to Inter Milan after spending last season there on loan before reports emerged claiming that he was instead going to join rivals, Juventus.

The Belgian international posted a message to his story which said: “When hate doesn’t work, they start telling lies”.

Given that any move to Juventus requires on the sale of Dušan Vlahovič to Paris Saint-Germain, Gazzetta dello Sport reported that talks between Juve and Lukaku have become stagnant while Inter themselves are no longer interested.

Aside from Juventus, only clubs in Saudi Arabia are willing to make an offer but Lukaku’s preference is to stay in Europe.

Another stumbling block with any attempt from Juventus to sign Lukaku is the reluctance from the fans, who do not want the forward their given his previous relations to Inter.

He has also clashed with a number of Juve players over the years and when the Binaconeri returned to their pre-season training, their fans sang anti-Lukaku songs.
