ROMELU LUKAKU looks to be in sublime shape as he prepares to begin his second spell with Inter Milan.
The 28-year-old Belgian returned to the Serie A giants on loan this summer after just one season back at Chelsea.
Lukaku failed to hit the ground running during his second stint with the Blues, netting just 15 goals in 44 appearances.
But he appears to have been putting in the work to return to top form in Italy after training pictures emerged of him looking trimmed down and lean.
Lukaku’s body shape has been known to fluctuate during his career and he admitted himself that he was too muscly while at Manchester United.
But he is currently looking incredibly trim just over one week out from the beginning of the Serie A season.

Inter kick off their 2022/23 campaign at home to Sassuolo on August 13.
Meanwhile, Lukaku revealed last month that he regrets leaving Inter in the first place.
At the club’s kit launch, he said: “I left. It was a mistake.
“Now I am happy to be wearing this jersey, the team knows what we need to do, it’ll be a great challenge this season and we need to continue like this.

“I realised last season when I was in England, just how important Inter are in the world.
“The club’s profile is improving on an international scale, the social media approach is really important too and you can see how we act in the locker room, in training, our hugs and jokes.
“Milan is a wonderful city and that is why I kept the old apartment when I went to London, because my mother was coming here all the time and I wanted to return too.”
Lukaku scored a breathtaking 64 goals in 95 appearances during his first stint at Inter, winning the Serie A title under Antonio Conte in 2021.
Now he will look to help them recapture the scudetto after rivals AC Milan pipped Inter to the crown last season.
