Inter Milan could make an offer to buy Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku with the funds from a sale of Andre Onana to Man United.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.
At the moment, Inter are waiting to see if Manchester United make a decisive move for goalkeeper Andre Onana.
The Red Devils are certainly keen on the Cameroonian. They see ham as one of the main targets to replace David De Gea should the Spaniard not extend his contract.
However, the Nerazzurri will only sell Onana for a big cash offer.
The former Ajax keeper will only leave Inter if they receive a fee that they feel reflects his sky-high value.
And, if Onana is on his way, the Nerazzurri know what they’ll do with the fee, reports the Gazzetta.
Inter Could Move For Lukaku With Fee From Selling Onana To Man United
Inter are still working to try and sign Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea.
Bringing the Belgian back is a priority for the Nerazzurri. However, the Blues have so far flatly rejected the Nerazzurri’s offer of another loan.
Chelsea want to sell Lukaku once and for all this summer.
Reportedly, the Blues are holding out for an offer of €40 million for the 30-year-old.
This would still represent a sizable capital loss considering Lukaku is amortized for €68 million in Chelsea’s balance sheet over the next three seasons of his deal signed in 2021.
However, Chelsea wouldn’t mind this if it means permanently offloading the Belgian. They want to get rid of the headache once and for all.
If Inter were to receive a fee north of €50 million for Onana, they would have more room to negotiate with Chelsea.
According to the Gazzetta, the Nerazzurri could offer Chelsea another loan, but containing a purchase obligation. The fee for such an obligation could be around €30 million.
