United reject £54m Inter bid for Lukaku

MANCHESTER United have turned down a £54million bid from Inter Milan for striker Romelu Lukaku, according to widespread reports.

Inter boss Antonio Conte is growing increasingly frustrated at the lack of progress in his attempts to sign the Belgium striker.

The Italian had hoped that Lukaku would be in a position to face United during the International Champions Cup match in Singapore on Saturday, which was decided by another Mason Greenwood strike.

The former Chelsea and Everton striker failed to feature due to a “niggle”, but news emerged on Saturday that United have rebuffed Inter’s offer as they seek to recoup more than the £79m spent on him two summers ago.

Conte said when asked about Inter’s interest in Lukaku: “I consider him a player who could improve our team.

“On one side it is my hope and my will, on my other side we will see what we find with the club.”

United are willing to offload Lukaku, who has scored 42 goals in 97 appearances for the club, and the 26-year-old’s arrival at the San Siro could move closer once the future of Mauro Icardi has been decided. – Eurosport
