Romelu Lukaku is claimed to be fearful that Manchester United will price him out of a summer move to Inter Milan.
The Belgian international has seemingly fallen out of favour under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and will be allowed to leave after just two seasons at Manchester United, with Inter keen on securing a deal to take the forward to Serie A.
Since Solskjaer’s appointment at Old Trafford in December, Lukaku has started just 15 of the Norwegian’s 29 games in charge, with Marcus Rashford having being preferred in a central striking role.
Lukaku has made no secret of his desire to one day play in Italy and according to The Mirror, the forward is concerned that United’s demands will price him out of his dream switch, as the club look to recoup the majority of the £75m they paid to sign the 26-year-old from Everton in 2017.
Inter Milan are thought to have made an opening bid for Lukaku in the last few days as they look to strengthen their squad this summer, with the Italian giants reported to have tabled an offer of around €30m plus winger Ivan Perisic.
The offer falls well short of United’s valuation for a player who has scored 42 goals in 96 appearances for the club, and it remains to be seen whether Solskjaer would be interested in the part-exchange of Croatian international Perisic.
