Manchester United are set to receive a big cash injection if Romelu Lukaku completes a big money move from Inter this summer, it is reported. Inter are embroiled in financial troubles after a tough year, despite ending the domestic season as champions of Italy for the first time since 2010.
Lukaku joined Inter from Manchester United in 2019 in a deal believed to be worth £70 million, just five less than what United had paid for him two years prior. But with two stellar seasons behind him in Italy, he could be on the move again, with Chelsea and Manchester City touted as possible destinations.
Manchester United have a habit of inserting profitable clauses in player sales and according to the Manchester Evening News, they did just that when they authorized the deal with Inter.
The club inserted a right to 25% of any future transfer fee when they sold Wilfried Zaha to Crystal Palace and buy-back clauses in sales of Memphis Depay and Adnan Januzaj.
In the report, it is claimed that United have a similar sell-on clause in place if Lukaku leaves Inter and the club will be hoping that he does so for a substantial amount – although it is not specified what percentage United would be entitled to exactly.
