Inter meet United to discuss Lukaku move

This will be the first meeting between the two sides, with Inter ready to present their bid of a two-year loan followed by an obligation to buy, in a deal worth €70m (£63m). Inter’s offer comprises a €10m payment for the loan this summer and then further instalments of €30m in 2020 and €30m in 2021.

Inter, however, are concerned that United will turn down the offer because of what happened two years ago when the Premier League club wanted to sign Ivan Perisic. Inter asked for €50m and refused United’s offer of €45m. READ MORE

The 27-year-old left Anfield for the Nou Camp in January 2018 for an initial fee of £105m, but he has not quite had the impact that Barcelona had hoped for.

The Brazilian has scored 21 goals in 75 appearances, but has never nailed down a guaranteed starting spot in the first XI and would suffer further if transfer targets Neymar and Antoine Griezemann arrive in Catalonia. READ MORE
