Rumours linking Romelu Lukaku with a transfer away from Manchester United simply is not going to go away.
The most recent replace within the saga comes from Gazzetta dello Sport (Thursday print) in Italy, translated brilliantly by Sport Witness.
For me, probably the most attention-grabbing story in regards to the report is that an official provide for Man United’s 26-year-old is near being made by Inter, whereas Gazzetta state that the subsequent few days might be ‘highly regarded’.
This goes according to what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stated in a latest press convention, as he instructed the media we should always know extra on Lukaku’s future ‘subsequent week’.
Anyway, again to the matter at hand… GdS state that United are open to the thought of a ‘deferred cost’, which means Inter wouldn’t pay straight, up-cash to signal Lukaku this summer time.
Apparently, the provide that Inter are about to make is price a assured €60m (£54m), in three instalments of €20m-per-year. Moreover, bonuses may take the full switch price to €70m (€63m).
Nonetheless, GdS state that Inter know this bid is not going to be sufficient, as is the case with most official opening provides.
Personally, I do get the impression some form of deal might be reached throughout this summer time, however I do hope that United ask for extra upfront – I’d even be dissatisfied if the Reds misplaced cash on the £75million that they paid to signal Lukaku from Everton in 2017…
