MANCHESTER UNITED will reject Inter Milan’s two-year loan offer for Romelu Lukaku and are only interested in a permanent deal.
And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to recoup at least the £75million the Red Devils forked out for the striker two years ago from Everton.
That is according to The Telegraph, who claim the Serie A side are ready to pay £9m to loan the Belgian with an obligation to buy him for £53.7m in 2021.
New Inter boss Antonio Conte has made the former Chelsea and Everton hitman one of his top targets this summer.
But the Nerazzurri will need to raise the cash to secure his services.
And they are looking to offload Mauro Icardi in order to free up the capital and wage space.
However, they are struggling to sell the Argentine, and that is why they are preparing an alternative proposal to United.
They held talks with Lukaku’s agent, Federico Pastorello, in Milan on Tuesday.
And they are likely to submit their loan proposal over the coming days.
United, who are due to announce the £50m capture of Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace today, have no interest in receiving anyone in exchange with Inter believed to be willing to offer Icardi, Ivan Perisic or Radja Nainggolan.
Lukaku is believed to be keen on a move to Italy and United boss Solskjaer knows offloading him would free up vital wages and boost his transfer funds.
Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is not willing to let Paul Pogba depart unless he receives a mega £160m from either Juventus or Real Madrid.
And with no apparent takers for the £505k-a-week Alexis Sanchez, Lukaku seems the favourite out of United’s big earners to exit.
