Inter are more confident of signing Romelu Lukaku after holding face-to-face talks with Manchester United yesterday, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Piero Ausilio officially began negotiations with the Red Devils in London and was told Inter would have to pay €83 million if they wanted the striker.,

United confirmed they are open to selling, though, while also suggesting they would allow the Nerazzurri to spread payment across several years.

Inter did not want to spend more than €60-65 million for Lukaku, some €20 million less than United have asked for, but Ausilio’s visit was described as ‘positive’.

Ausilio and Beppe Marotta will now study their next move after gaining more information on how to secure Lukaku.

The Nerazzurri hope they can secure the 26-year-old with a similar deal to the one struck with Cagliari for Nicolo Barella.

Gazzetta reported they would have to guarantee United a lot more money up front, along with a series of add-ons that moved them much closer to their €83 million asking price.

Lukaku missed training in Australia on Thursday but the forward does not intend to cause any trouble for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Belgian recorded the second fastest time during United’s athletic tests yesterday, reaching a peak speed of 36kmh.
