Juventus have entered the race to sign Romelu Lukaku.
The Belgian international has been heavily linked with a summer switch to Inter, but a move has failed to materialise so far, as the San Siro outfit has failed to meet the striker’s valuation.
Manchester United have set a £75 million price tag on the 26-year-old, and are unwilling to let him depart for less. But now, according to latest reports emerging from Italy, Inter may be ready to up their offer.
As per reliable Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Inter are preparing a new bid worth £70m plus bonuses, after seeing their previous £60m offer turned down.
However, Antonio Conte and co. could now face a humongous challenge in landing their prime attacking target, in the form of their domestic rivals, Juventus.
The Turin-based outfit has now joined the race for Lukaku. Further, they are also willing to include Paulo Dybala as part of the offer, in what could turn out to be a sensational swap deal.
Initial signs indicate that Manchester United are interested in this exchange, as the Argentine international would be a welcome addition to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s setup.
It remains to be seen whether Dybala himself is up for this switch, but a lack of game-time at the Old Lady might just convince the 25-year-old to head to the Theatre of Dreams.
