"Ha! People said there were arguments," he told the Mirror. "There were arguments in the press and stuff, but I don't know where it came from. I just spoke to him and said hopefully what I wanted as a player and he was okay with it.
"Then I had the opportunity to go. The feeling I had after three games at Chelsea, I was really hoping for a starting spot, because of the season before when I had scored goals. But it's a big club, there is real competition, and they said there was a feeling I had to stay patient again.
"And the feeling that I had from my first year came up again, and I knew I had to go. Because how you could be on the bench after the year I had last year? Because I still want to progress. I don't want to be a one-season show.
"I just constantly want to impress people, constantly to hit people in the eye, like, 'Whoa, that Lukaku guy, he's a good player! Wow, we need to follow him. That Lukaku guy, he's a good player, bang, bang.'
"I want to hear people say that because then I know I'll have to do even better, because the next time they see me it has to be better - better than the year before."
