Exits are proving to be the issue of the hour for Manchester United, with their other transfer dealings proving to be less noteworthy.
Currently, Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba are the two looming exits for the Red Devils. Although both players will join the club in their pre-season tour, their respective exit sagas are still believed to be going full-fledged behind the scenes.
United have taken identical stances in both cases, refusing to budge from their high valuations irrespective of the offers provided by interested parties.
As far as exits go, it is arguably the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo that has affected the Mancunian giants the most over the long run as they have consistently failed at signing his replacement. Now, the Portuguese superstar may influence the next player to leave Old Trafford.
As per the Sun, Cristiano Ronaldo is eager to see Lukaku arrive at Juventus. It appears that the Belgian striker’s agent has offered Lukaku to both Juventus and Napoli after Inter Milan and Antonio Conte failed to provide adequate deals for United.
It is believed that the Premier League giants want at least £75 million for the former Everton striker and won’t settle for swap or loan deals- options that Milan allegedly offered.
Now, Ronaldo appears to be welcome to the prospect of Lukaku joining the Old Lady. The former Real Madrid star was signed with the sole intent of bagging the Champions League title and their business since has continued that elusive ambition.
As of such, the prospect of playing alongside Ronaldo may prove to be a more tempting option for Lukaku than the tutelage of Antonio Conte.
Napoli are also believed to be a side capable of making the deal. At the moment, Lukaku is part of the Manchester United squad that is about to commence its pre-season tour.
