When I arrived at Inter, I immediately felt that I would do well for this club. The love and welcome I received at Malpensa airport was the beginning of a beautiful story. I decided to never disappoint you every time I wore the Inter shirt. I gave 100% of myself every day in every work out but especially in the games to make you happy.
First season ended the hardest way, but you guys gave me the strength to keep pushing and we did it a a team that's why we became champions. I hope you understand my decision to move to Chelsea. It's an opportunity of a lifetime for me and I think at this point in my career it's the opportunity I have always dreamed of. One thing for sure, I stay interested forever because without you I would not be the man and player I am today. So thank you from the bottom of my heart I love you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Always strength Inter. Romelu.
