Football in Italy almost belongs in a different category of sport altogether. The emphasis on shape, on collective pressing, on harnessing a particular kind of team sport – it is something indigenous and ancient, like a Chilean Abuelita making empanadas.
For Solskjaer, Lukaku’s frame was never going to suit United’s fluid, counterattacking style based on pressing, as seen by the way they played against Chelsea, with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford often changing positions
Under Conte, though, Lukaku will be the team’s reference point from which Conte’s football can blossom. Having not played a game of pre-season, though, he will need to take some time to reach full fitness.
