Romelu Lukaku increasingly likely to join Inter Milan from Manchester United

The Italian club said Lukaku inked a five-year deal, keeping him at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium until June 30, 2024.

Manchester United have reportedly accepted £72 million from Inter Milan for striker, Romelu Lukaku, according to Daily Mail.

Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic remains an option for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if Lukaku leaves before Thursday's transfer deadline. But considering his stature, Lukaku was left feeling "hurt and isolated" due to these orders.

United seemingly prefer Marcus Rashford as their first-choice centre forward and as such Lukaku looks set to depart ahead of the new season starting.

The former Everton striker was seen training with Anderlecht this week.

In his 2 seasons at United he was never quite able to reach the heights of his Everton career, but Inter will be hoping he can turn that around and become a consistent Capocannoniere contender like Icardi was.


Now that a deal has been agreed, Lukaku will travel to Italy and has a medical booked for Thursday in Milan.

And his record against the big six in the Premier League wasn't up to scratch.

Romelu Lukaku's departure from Manchester United to Inter Milan appears imminent. Much of it, probably has to do with the rapid deterioration of Lukaku's and Solskjaer's relationship.

"Juve have a great project in place and they just keep going". Every year they try to get stronger.

"Without doubt, Juve are one of the two-three best teams in Europe."

Lukaku was earlier heading towards Juventus.
