Romelu Lukaku advised two Manchester United players to quit the club because of clans in the dressing room.
The Belgian has been one of the biggest exits from Old Trafford in years after signing for Inter Milan in 2019.
He joined Antonio Conte's men for a fee of around £74m and went on to have an extraordinary year.
In 51 appearances, he scored 34 times and has become a fan favourite.
But he is not the only one to make the switch from Manchester to Milan.
Last season, Alexis Sanchez and Ashley Young also made the move to the San Siro – the former on loan and the latter in January.
And in the summer, a fee was agreed with United making Sanchez's loan spell permanent.
But it had not been known the extent of Lukaku's influence, who reportedly told the duo to quit the Red Devils.
According to La Repubblica, the former Chelsea striker revealed that life at Inter was brilliant – because there were no clans.

The report states that United's dressing room has become toxic with too many factions growing within the squad.
Some discontent had been brewed as a result of Sanchez's high wages.
There were some who disagreed with the fact that the Chilean was given such a large contract whereas their own loyalty had not been rewarded.
Young and Sanchez did join with Lukaku under Conte, where they narrowly missed out on the Europa League.
Meanwhile, the Belgium international has admitted he will return to Anderlecht before his career is over.
The 27-year-old started off his career at the Brussels outfit before joining Chelsea in 2011.
"I always follow Anderlecht," Lukaku told Belgian channel VTM.
"I will definitely return. The attraction for a player that was there as a youngster is too big.
"Ask guys like Leander Dendoncker, Youri Tielemans. They are still involved with the club too because we had so many good moments there."
