​Inter are set to make a two-year loan bid for Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku worth £9m, with an obligation to buy for another £54m upon completion of the loan.


The Belgian has made no bones over his desire to make a move to Italy, with speculation rife surrounding his future at Old Trafford as United prepare to undergo a major summer overhaul.

While ​Inter have remained as the most likely destination throughout the window, ​Sky Sports claim they are set to make an alternative bid to the £80m outright transfer the ​Red Devils have been seeking.


Antonio Conte was recently placed in charge of the ​Serie A side, and is renewing interest in the forward after he tried to sign the Belgian in 2017 when he was in charge of Chelsea, only for the 26-year-old to opt for United instead.

Federico Pastorello, ​Lukaku's agent, was in Milan on Tuesday for talks with Inter, who are unable to sign any players until June 30 when they are released by UEFA from a Financial Fair Play settlement agreement.

Of his client's desire to leave Manchester, his agent said: "Lukaku is a dream and is not easy to realize it...but yes, Inter are trying to get Rom," as quoted by ​Fabrizio Romano.


"Romelu has expressed his wishes [to leave Manchester United]."


The jury is out among United supporters over Lukaku, who has received criticism from some sections of the fanbase since making his £75m move from Everton in 2017. During that time he's netted 42 goals in 96 appearances, but has found first-team opportunities limited this season with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opting to field Marcus Rashford in his stead.
