Inter Milan to return with improved Lukaku bid

Inter Milan are apparently set to return with an improved offer for Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku.

The Italian giants have been linked with a move for the Belgian international all summer long, already seeing two bids rejected for the 26-year-old earlier in the window.

The first bid was a two-year loan deal with an obligation to buy, with the fee totalling around £63 million, while their straight cash offer of £54 million was also rejected by Manchester United.

According to Sky Sports, Inter are now set to return with an improved bid, though the offer is still likely to fall short of United’s £79m valuation.

Inter had been struggling to raise the necessary funds to secure a deal, however, their hopes could be boosted with unwanted forward Mauro Icardi reconsidering a potential move to Roma.

Serie A rivals Juventus had also expressed an interest in Lukaku, the club agreeing a swap deal with United involving Paulo Dybala, though that deal is now thought to be unlikely due to the Argentine’s excessive wage demands.

Lukaku has been with United since joining in a £75m deal from Everton in 2017, the forward scoring 42 goals in 96 appearances since his move to Old Trafford.
