Inter boss Antonio Conte unwilling to give up on signing Lukaku

Manchester United have rejected Inter Milan’s €60m offer for Romelu Lukaku – but Italian manager Antonio Conte has not given up hope of landing the striker this summer.

Just two years after joining United for £75m, as reported by The Independent, the San Siro club made a laughable bid to grant the striker pastures new, but the Red Devils are not in a position where they must sell.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will happily keep hold of the 26-year-old striker unless the club’s valuation is met.

Press Association reporter Simon Peach understands United received a €60m (£54m) bid from Inter two days ago, which was rejected (and probably laughed at).

The two clubs met in the International Champions Cup clash in Singapore on Saturday, but Lukaku was ruled out due to supposedly being injured.

United won 1-0 thanks to a second-half strike by 17-year-old Mason Greenwood.

Conte made it clear after the match that he remains keen to sign Lukaku, who turned him down at Chelsea in 2017.

Peach went on shared part of Conte’s post-match press conference on Twitter where he talks about Lukaku, as seen below:
