Inter Milan will continue their pursuit for Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku, and are set to submit a £60m offer this week.
The Serie A Giants were pushing for a two-year loan move, with an obligation to sign for £63m staggered across three separate payments. However, United rejected the offer, as they are only interested in offloading the forward on a permanent basis.
Inter have now resolved to making a permanent offer for the Belgian, and will make a £60m proposal for Romelu Lukaku, which according to Skysports, ‘Inter still want the payments to be structured over two or three years.’
However, Manchester United are likely to reject the offer, as the red devils won’t allow Rom leave without making a profit.
The Italian side know time is running out, as the English transfer window, is set to close in three weeks time, on Thursday 8 August, keeping in mind that the red devils will want to seek out a suitable replacement before the window finally shuts.
The club’s hierarchy has already made room for Lukaku, as former captain Mauro Icardi was sent home from Inter’s pre-season training camp in Lugano, Switzerland and informed that he would not be taken on tour to Asia.
The San Siro will welcome Romelu Lukaku with open arms, and so will Antonio Conte – who wanted to sign the striker while with former club Chelsea.
Romelu Lukaku is signed to Manchester United until 2022. However, following Solskjaer’s arrival, the Belgian has played second fiddle to Marcus Rashford, and has made no secret of his interest in a potential move to Inter, following Antonio Conte’s appointment.
