Inter Milan sporting director Piero Ausilio has travelled to London to meet with Manchester United officials over a proposed move for Romelu Lukaku.
This comes from reliable Guardian journalist Fabrizio Romano, who claims Inter will offer a two-year loan plus an obligation to buy in deal worth £63m.
Lukaku is said to be Inter manager Antonio Conte’s prime target this summer and the report suggests the Belgian is keen to team up with the former Chelsea boss, who tried to sign him while in charge at Stamford Bridge in 2017.
However, the report claims Inter are worried that the Reds will turn down their offer for the striker because of they way they were treated in their pursuit of Croatian winger Ivan Perisic.
United’s offer of €45m was refused for Perisic two seasons ago when Inter were holding out for €50m, in the window Jose Mourinho was furious he could not secure his transfer targets.
The Reds look like they may be prepared to let Lukaku leave, but only at the right price and will not let the 26-year-old leave Old Trafford on the cheap this summer.
