Inter Milan coach Conte to hold back Lukaku due to overweight claims

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte may hold back Romelu Lukaku over fitness doubts.

Corriere dello Sport says Lukaku arrived from Manchester United out of shape, having missed their pre-season friendlies officially due to injury.

It's been suggested his current weight is 104kg and Nerazzurri medical staff believe he should not go above 100kg.

The Belgian is well aware of the situation and has been coming in on his days off for extra training.

Inter kickoff the Serie A season against Lecce.
