Romelu Lukaku to be offered £41m contract by Inter Milan if Man Utd agree to sell
Inter Milan hope to offer Romelu Lukaku £41m over five years, including bonuses, if they can convince Manchester United to sell the Belgian striker.
Inter’s latest proposal for Lukaku would guarantee United £63m, including add-ons, but structured over two or three years. It is believed that is still short of United’s expectations with the club wanting more than the £79m they paid Everton in 2017. Sky Sports News reported on Wednesday that Lukaku’s absence from United’s pre-season friendly win over Leeds was the beginning of the departure process, with the striker missing the game with what is described as being related to a minor ankle injury. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he is unsure if Romelu Lukaku will leave Manchester United this summer but reiterated the club are yet to receive a formal bid for the Belgian striker
Negotiations are continuing between the clubs but Inter remain frustrated with the situation regarding Mauro Icardi. The Argentine is surplus to requirements but the Nerazzurri are yet to receive any firm offers as they attempt to operate within FFP perimeters. Lukaku’s contract expires in 2022 and United are holding firm with their valuation of Belgium’s all-time leading scorer following his 48 goals in 81 international matches by the age of 26.
