Lukaku cost Inter €75m

Romelu Lukaku is expected in Milan tonight, as it’s reported Inter will give Manchester United €65m plus €10m bonuses and five per cent of a future sale.

Agent Federico Pastorello published a photograph on Instagram showing them in a private jet, tagged Brussels Airport.

"Ready to take off... Direction Milano!"

Multiple Italian and English sources are confident the deal is done and the two clubs have agreed terms.

Lukaku has been given permission to fly out for a medical and is expected in Milan’s Malpensa Airport this evening.

A medical will be conducted tomorrow and the five-year contract signed.

Sky Sport Italia had stated the transfer fee was worth €65m plus €10-12m in bonuses and a percentage of his future sale.

Sportitalia have updated their reporting and claim the figure is lower than that: €65m plus €10m in bonuses and a five per cent cut of his next transfer.

This is significantly less than the sum English reports had pointed to and translates to £60m plus £9.2m in add-ons.

Manchester United’s asking price had been €85m, but it seems as if with the Premier League transfer deadline looming on Thursday, they were prepared to accept €75m.

It's possible Juventus did Inter a favour in this case, as their agreement to swap with Paulo Dybala - who then rejected personal terms - meant they'd accept a lower fee.
