Romelu Lukaku set to miss out on Inter debut against Lecce

Romelu Lukaku to miss out on Inter Milan debut against Lecce as he is overweight

According to several reports, Romelu Lukaku is set to miss out on his debut for Inter against Lecce on Monday due to still being overweight.

beIN sports reported that whilst Inter wanted the Belgian to drop his weight down to 100kg, he still remains over the weight limit.

During his time at Manchester United and even after he left, Lukaku faced a lot of criticism over his weight, with the most notable one coming after he left, with Gary Neville tweeting "Andy he admitted he was overweight! He is over 100kg! He's a Manchester United player!"

Neville also added that "He will score goals and do well at Inter Milan but unprofessionalism is contagious!"

If Lukaku misses out on the match, Antonio Conte will have a real headache in terms of attacking options, after allowing Ivan Perisic to join Bayern Munich on loan earlier on this week.

Apart from Lukaku, Inter have the exiled Mauro Icardi still on their books, Lautaro Martinez who has not been up to scratch after coming late to pre-season after his Copa America venture with Argentina, and also youngsters Samuele Longo and Sebastiano Esposito, who are both unproven forwards.
