Inter have reportedly offered €60m plus bonuses for Romelu Lukaku, but Manchester United’s €85m asking price could end negotiations.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, the written proposal sent to Old Trafford is worth €60m plus bonuses, with payment spread out over several years.
However, Manchester United are not budging from their initial assessment of €85m plus add-ons.
The difficulty in selling Mauro Icardi is making things worse for Inter, who otherwise cannot afford such a large expenditure on one player.
Calciomercato.com maintain Suning Group and Inter chief Zhang Jindong gets the ultimate word on who Inter purchase and is unconvinced by Lukaku.
He already pulled the plug on Javier Pastore from Paris Saint-Germain last year, considering him overpriced, and the trequartista ended up joining Roma instead.
Tuttosport and the Corriere dello Sport both maintain an alternative to Lukaku is Edinson Cavani, who is 32 years old and has only one season left on his PSG contract.
