Lukaku, who is reportedly keen on a move to Italy, would see himself play under newly-appointed Antonio Conte who missed out on signing the Belgian at Chelsea.
The Red Devils are rumoured to be asking for a fee close to £75m, and if a move is to happen, they will need to drop their valuation of Lukaku whilst also helping Inter pay his wages every week. A similar deal has been suggested for Alexis Sánchez, whose £350,000-a-week wage, along with bonuses, still halts United’s ability in contract negotiations with other squad members, such as David De Gea.
When quizzed about a move for Lukaku, Conte failed to rule out a possible switch for the 26-year-old, telling the BBC: “I think now it’s very difficult to talk about this.”
“For sure, we have a plan to try to improve the team. But it will be very important for the players, it will be very important to have a great will and great ambition, me, the players and the club, to try to reduce this gap [to Juventus].”
“But I repeat, in this moment, there is a sporting director to talk about this and do this question about the transfer market, about the players. But I repeat, now we are very focused to do the first step and to work together.”
