Marotta: 'Inter offer right for Lukaku'

Inter director Beppe Marotta insists their “offer was suited to the transfer value” of Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Nerazzurri are believed to have offered €70m plus bonuses, but the asking price remains €85m cash.

“The club is strong, but we need to stay within certain parameters. The club has made big investments and we believe that we’re already at a good stage in the process,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

Marotta was asked specifically about the €85m Manchester United demands for centre-forward Lukaku.

“We are ready to pounce on opportunities, but prices are nowadays very high indeed. We made a strong offer, one that is valid and suited to the transfer value of the player and we were unable to conclude a deal.

“We’ll continue to monitor the situation and anything can happen on the market.”
