Inter Milan have recently finalised an agreement with Manchester United to sign over Romelu Lukaku for an amount that could increase to 80m euros (£74m). Earlier in July, United had rejected Inter’s initial £54m bid for the player, who had been fined by the club after missing a training session. 26-year-old Belgium international Lukaku was trained at his former team Anderlecht for the past few days.
Federico Pastorello, agent for the player, flew out to London in an attempt to resolve Lukaku’s future career. Later in that same evening, Pastorello posted a photo on social media of the two on board a private jet, along with a caption that read that they were ready to take off in the direction of Milano. Inter Milan and United have come to different conclusions in their valuation, with United wanting to recoup at least the £75m they had sent two years ago to Everton.
Inter and fellow Serie A side Juventus have been hard at working trying to sign Lukaku, who did not take part in the pre-season because of an injury suffered to his ankle. Manager for Inter Antonio Conte, who had hoped to sign Lukaku when he was Chelsea boss, said the player remains his number one target, stating that he feels that player could improve their team. United have also expressed interest in Juventus’ forward Mario Mandzukic, 33 years old who could reinforce their forward options.
