Antonio Conte is set to be unveiled as the Inter Milan boss and the Italian wants Romelu Lukaku transfer as his first signing of the summer.
Antonio Conte has been a long time fan of Romelu Lukaku. The Italian manager wanted to sign the Belgian when he was the manager at Chelsea, but that deal failed to materialize after we swooped in and blew the London club out of the water.
The 49-year-old has just won a legal battle against Chelsea that will earn him £9million after the ‘unjust sacking’ by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.
We have already covered the Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan story in our previous report.
Man United are demanding a transfer fee of €70-80m for their Belgian Striker but Inter Milan are unable to pay anything above €50-60m.
There are also reports which say that Inter Milan are ready to offer our ong-term target Ivan Perisic in order to sweeten the deal (and bring down the price) for Romelu Lukaku, but it’s still not sure if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants the Croatian at the Old Trafford.
Romelu Lukaku, obviously, has fallen down the pecking order under Ole. The 25-year-old has been replaced by Marcus Rashford up front as the Englishman fits better into the Norwegian’s system.
Lukaku and his agent Federico Pastorello have talked about their wish of moving to Serie A and it looks more than likely that Romelu Lukaku won’t be a Red Devil next season.
