A new name has emerged in Inter’s hunt for a replacement for outgoing striker Romelu Lukaku, with Manchester United’s Anthony Martial linked with a switch to Serie A.
As reported in today’s newspaper edition of British tabloid The Mirror, Lukaku’s impending €115 million return to Chelsea has seen Inter turn their attention towards a new forward, and they have sounded out an approach for Martial.
The Frenchman has fallen out of favour under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford and Manchester United are ready to sell, as they seek to recoup as much of the €50m spent to sign him from Monaco in 2015.
Inter are looking to bring in the 25-year-old on an initial loan and it is reported that Manchester United would be willing to sanction this as long as an obligation to buy clause is inserted, to be activated next summer.
The Nerazzurri would also cover Martial’s €235,000 per week salary for the duration of the season, but face competition from Everton for his signature.
