Inter Milan signing Lukaku: Adriano my hero

Former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku says he's always been a fan of new club Inter Milan.

The Belgium international joined Inter on Thursday in a £75m deal.

And he admits Inter cult hero Adriano had an influence on his career.

"The only shirt I had as a child was that of Adriano, the Emperor," smiled Lukaku.

"He sent me a message not long ago on Instagram, because I talked about him."
