Manchester United Will Not Drop €83 Million Asking Price For Inter Target Lukaku

Manchester United Will Not Drop €83 Million Asking Price For Inter Target Lukaku

Manchester United have no intention of lowering their €83 million asking price for Romelu Lukaku, according to Sky Sport.

Inter’s sporting director Piero Ausilio met the Red Devils’ officials yesterday and was told they would have to cough up the money required.

The Nerazzurri have not presented a new offer yet as they only held formal talks with United on Thursday.

Ausilio’s only chance of securing Lukaku will be to meet the €83 million United want, splitting it between cash up front and add-ons.

Ante Rebic remains Inter’s first alternative option should their pursuit for the Belgian striker fail.

The Croatian is a different type of striker but it is thought he would nonetheless be useful to Conte in attack.

Inter wanted to sign Lukaku on loan with an obligation to buy, perhaps splitting payment across several years.

United did not seem to be interested in accepting such a structure, though, making it hard to imagine Lukaku arriving.

Antonio Conte reportedly wanted the 26-year-old to turn up before the start of preseason training.

It now seems there is a strong chance Lukaku will not join at all.
