Inter President Zhang Has Doubts About Move For Romelu Lukaku

Inter President Zhang Has Doubts About Move For Romelu Lukaku

Lukaku is a prime transfer target for new Inter boss Antonio Conte, who had previously tried to sign the Belgium global while manager of Chelsea in 2017.

According to The Sun, Antonio Conte's side are ready to agree to United's demands, but they are only able to pay £60m up front.

We'll start with the "bad" news, which comes from the former of the two, as they sound all downbeat about the Belgian potentially featuring on Wednesday against Leeds United... which in the end he didn't.

It is understood the Belgium global has already agreed a £180,000-a-week deal with the Nerazzurri and is exciting about working with Conte, but now the two clubs need to reach an agreement over a free.

Reigning Serie A champions Juventus are reportedly interested in signing Icardi, and a transfer for the Argentine forward would go a long way towards financing the Nerazzurri's deal for Lukaku, who would come at a premium.

Inter have previously considered making a loan offer with the option to buy at a later date but this was not favoured by United.

An early tap in from tournament top scorer Odion Ighalo was one of the few bright moments in a game that failed to catch fire. It has been a good tournament for Nigeria as they have beaten teams like South Africa and Cameroon.

For Inter, a transfer for Lukaku is dependent on Mauro Icardi leaving the club but he is threatening to see out his contract and that could ruin any chances of the deal happening.

Inter appear determined to try and get Conte's preferred striker and as talks have progressed the club have even sent executives over to England.

Should United cash in on Lukaku, or are they better off hanging on to him? We'll see what happens.

"We want to satisfy his request within certain financial parameters".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has remained coy when quizzed about the future of Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United this summer. "You guys will know something next week".

Lukaku is now taking part in United's pre-season tour of Australia, where the club recently played Perth Glory in a friendly encounter.
