Romelu Lukaku 'Agrees' To Five-Year Deal With Inter Milan Worth €37.5m
Romelu Lukaku is edging closer to an exit from Old Trafford after reports in Italy suggest that he has agreed to a move to Inter Milan.
The Manchester United forward had a disappointing season for his standards, with Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær preferring Marcus Rashford as his first-choice striker.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport (via Football Italia), the Italian side have agreed to sign him on a five-year deal and the 26-year-old Belgian would earn €7.5m per year before bonuses.
The Italian newspaper added that I Nerazzurri are in talks with Lukaku's representatives as they finalise his personal terms.
However, it is worth remembering that the club still need to negotiate with United over the final transfer fee for the player.
Lukaku has emerged as one of Inter Milan's top targets this summer, especially with rumblings that Antonio Conte will become the club's next manager.
The 49-year-old Italian has been out of management since he was axed at Chelsea in 2018, but he was a big admirer of the Belgium international and wanted to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
Sport Mediaset reports that the ex-Chelsea and Juventus boss had been spotted in Milan, but the club are waiting to make an official announcement after the brother of current head coach Luciano Spalletti, Marcello, passed away.
Earlier reports suggested that Inter Milan had made a £30m offer and Ivan Perišić, who had been linked with the club for some time, for Lukaku.
The ex-Chelsea and Everton striker admitted in April that playing in Italy would be a "dream," not to mention that he would want to play in Serie A "sooner or later."
"Playing in Serie A is a dream, it would be really a dream," he said on Sky Italia's Lords of Football.
"I hope to be able to play sooner or later, even if at the moment I am focused on the United."
Should United sell Lukaku?
