Why Inter must play waiting game if they want to sign Lukaku

According to Sky Sports, Manchester United will sell striker Romelu Lukaku for the £75m they bought him for.

Inter Milan are the front-runners for the Belgian’s signature and there is plenty evidence to suggest he wants the move equally as much the Italian giants.

However, Lukaku must play a waiting game because Inter are unlikely to submit a bid until July.

The reason for that is down to Financial Fair Play. A settlement involving Inter will be released on 30 June because they’ve been under supervision since 2015 for breaching FFP rules.

It would make life a lot easier for the Serie A club if they could find a buyer for Mauro Icardi. A source told Sky Sports that Inter need £30m before they can afford Lukaku.

It has been reported via Manchester Evening News that Lukaku wants his future sorted before United fly out to Australia for pre-season preparations. Of course, he’d rather go with Inter and get to know his new group of team-mates.

At this stage, we’d be very surprised if Lukaku was still a United player next season.
