Inter 'negotiating Lukaku price'

Inter are reportedly negotiating a transfer fee with Manchester United for striker Romelu Lukaku.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira, Inter have already agreed personal terms with Antonio Conte’s ‘absolute first choice’ to be his No 9.

Schira writes the Belgian stands to earn €7.5m plus bonuses a season at San Siro until 2024.

As for how much the Nerazzurri will pay, United would be holding out for ‘at least €70m’.

In the meantime, the 26-year-old confessed to Sport Mediaset: “I was always a big fan of the Italian League.

“I have two Leagues, which I’ve always dreamed about - the English League and Serie A.

“Serie A is my [other] favourite League - I love Italy. With the transfer of [Cristiano] Ronaldo, I think the Italian League is now coming back.

“Antonio Conte going to Inter is really good because he is, [for] me, the best manager in the world.

“And then you have Maurizio Sarri going to Juventus and [Carlo] Ancelotti at Napoli. So I think Serie A will be really exciting next year and I’m really happy for Italian football.

“He [Conte] knows what I think about him. I’m not somebody who likes to talk about my personal relationships with managers but, you know, I’m a player of Manchester United and I have to respect my club.

“And if something happens, the teams and my agent have to do the talking. I have [made] my decision and [will] stay outside.”

The report comes on the same day that the Red Devils left him out of promotional material on social media.
