On June 4th, Belgian newspaper Het Belang van Limburg reported that Manchester United have ‘made it clear’ to Romelu Lukaku they need a ‘good offer’ to sanction his sale in the summer.
It was also explained the striker would prefer a move to Italy, but the issue is only a few clubs would be able to pay a hefty fee to the Red Devils.
Even before Antonio Conte was appointed as Inter’s new manager, the former Everton star was linked with a move to the San Siro.
Meanwhile, Mauro Icardi’s future at the club remains uncertain and FcInterNews‘ reports the Argentina international and Lukaku’s future could be linked.
The Nerazzurri have already decided to give up on their star player and to solve his future, Juventus is a solution that can please everyone.
Inter owner Suning’s idea is to sell their forward to the highest bidder and use around €70-80m from that to sign Lukaku.
There were claims of a swap deal involving the Inter captain and Paulo Dybala, but the latter is no hurry to make a decision on his future and wants to understand the new project at Juventus following Massimiliano Allegri’s exit.
Even if the Turin club decide to sign Icardi and pay money up-front, they are willing to invest around €50-60m, which is lower than what Inter are demanding for their star.
FcInterNews does not suggest if Inter will accept the Old Lady’s proposal for Icardi, but the report claims the money raised from his sale would be immediately invested in signing Lukaku.
