Its peak business for Manchester United at the moment as the side looks to bounce back from its early disappointments and make a string of vital signings ahead of pre-season training.
The club is touted to make at least three more additions to their roster as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to address the big issues at the side as well as make investments for the long-term future of the club with upcoming British talent featuring at large on his radar.
However, another area that the Red Devils have to deal with is departures. Both Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku appear an exit-bound and deftly handling their transfers is no easy affair.
According to the Corriere Dello Sport, Inter Milan are looking to reduce the tremendous asking price for Romelu Lukaku. The report states that the Serie A outfit is willing to offer Mauro Icardi and/or Radja Nainggolan plus cash as part of the deal to acquire Lukaku.
New manager Antonio Conte seems eager for the Belgian’s signing and appears adamant on getting past their crutch of not having the precise funds that the Red Devils require. Past murmurs of a similar deal had indicated that United weren’t interested in any of the players that Inter were willing to swap for Lukaku and would instead prefer a straight deal.
Another claim on the matter indicated that Inter were willing to make a £62 million bid for the striker but he would have to spend a period of loan at the Italian club before the fee is released. An iteration of the same had even claimed a rather unusual two-year long loan stint for the former Everton man.
Speculations have been rife that the club is looking at possible replacements for Lukaku and it will be interesting to see how Inter are able to pry him away, if at all.
