Manchester United have agreed on a £70m bid from Inter Milan that would lead to Romelu Lukaku joining the Serie A club in the next few days.
Romelu Lukaku had already talked about his desire to play in the Serie A, preferably for Inter Milan, after Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made it clear that Marcus Rashford was the first-choice striker ahead of the Belgian for the upcoming season.
Inter Milan has been in contact with Lukaku’s agent, Federico Pastorello, for the past few months and the Belgian had reportedly already agreed on the personal terms with the Italian club that would have him earn £300,000 a week in wages.
However, Manchester United had rejected several bids from Inter Milan as none of them financially matched to what Ed Woodward was seeking for the former Everton and Chelsea man.
But now, as per the Guardian, Manchester United have finally accepted a £70m bid from the Nerazzurri, and with personal terms already agreed, the deal should be wrapped up in the next few days (Note: Serie A window is open until 23rd of August, so Lukaku could still leave United after the deadline day tomorrow):
“Romelu Lukaku is set to join Inter after Manchester United accepted the Italian club’s latest offer of £70m including add-ons for the striker. The player’s representative, Federico Pastorello, met with United representatives in London on Wednesday to finally sort out the long-running saga.”

Romelu Lukaku leaving for Inter Milan officially confirms that Dybala-Lukaku swap is off, however, Manchester United have shown a late interest in Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen.
The departure of the Belgian also means that the Red Devils might need another center-forward who can act as a backup to Marcus Rashford.
We have been linked with former Spurs Striker, and now a free agent, Fernando Llorente for that job, though it’s still uncertain whether that transfer would go through.
