Romelu Lukaku’s Man United exit
Over the past few weeks, it’s become clear that Romelu Lukaku wants to leave Manchester United.
Lukaku joined the Red Devils from Everton in a 75 million pound deal.
However, after a recent Euro 2020 qualifying match for Belgium against Scotland, Lukaku explained that he’s considering switching clubs.
“I have a contract with Man United. I’ll speak with my club and my agent Federico Pastorello to make the best decision. I am going to enjoy my holidays with my family now. I know what I’ll do, but won’t say it. We’ll see. If I expect a busy summer? Yes.”#mufc pic.twitter.com/z9R0fnLIzI

Inter Milan line up Mauro Icardi plus cash offer
Lukaku has been linked with a possible move to Inter Milan.
Inter Milan are now managed by former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.
In the Telegraph on Wednesday, Inter’s financial package to try to convince Man United to sell Lukaku is analysed:
Romelu Lukaku’s hopes of clinching a move to Inter Milan rest on whether Manchester United can be persuaded to take Mauro Icardi as part of the deal, or another buyer emerges for the Argentine.
Inter will make United an offer of Icardi plus cash, as they cannot afford the £80 million valuation the Old Trafford club have placed on the Belgian.

Where else could Mauro Icardi go?
Suggestions that Icardi could be heading for the Inter Milan exit door aren’t new.
For the record, the Argentine is under contract at the San Siro until 2021.
The breakdown between Icardi and Inter began last season when the club stripped him of their captaincy.
Corriere dello Sport have recently suggested that Icardi could join Juventus this summer.
Whether that actually happens remains to be seen.
