Inter Milan are going ‘all out’ to sign Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku this summer, according to the Belgian’s agent.
Lukaku’s agent, Federico Pastorello, was in Milan on Wednesday for talks over the deal, which the 26-year-old is said to be keen on.
But Pastorello also states that Inter will have to hurry up in negotiations for Lukaku.
“I spoke with the director [Giuseppe Marotta] to understand the club’s intentions with the player. They will take the decisions, we can’t put a time frame on it,” Pastorello said as quoted by Sky Sports.
“What is clear is that if Inter want the player, they will need to get a move on.
“Inter are seriously trying to sign him, they are all out for him. Goals are not always there to be reached, but it’s a declared target. At the moment, it remains a complicated dream.”

According to Sky Sports, Antonio Conte has identified Lukaku as his prime target this summer, and the club have offered a two-year loan deal worth £10m with an obligation to buy for £60m.
Lukaku was heavily criticised by fans last year and has not enjoyed a successful stint at Old Trafford since his arrival from Everton. The Belgian has already openly expressed his desire to play in the Serie A this summer and it seems inevitable he will move if Inter can agree a fee.
If Lukaku does depart, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will need a replacement striker, as the club cannot afford to rely on just Marcus Rashford up front next season. Wissam Ben Yedder of Sevilla would be an ideal replacement for the Belgian international.
