Deal Close: Man United reach agreement over £62m deal

Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku has reportedly agreed personal terms with Inter Milan.

Antonio Conte is looking to overhaul Inter’s squad after taking over from Luciano Spalletti at the San Siro and has identified the 26-year-old as his priority target this transfer window.

Romelu Lukaku has failed to win the manager’s trust at Old Trafford, and Manchester United are ready to let the Belgian leave for £62 million despite signing him for a fee of £75 million just two years ago.

Romelu Lukaku and Inter Milan have agreed a deal over personal terms which could see the former Chelsea star earn £6.6 million in bonuses until 2024.

However, the Italian giants are yet to reach an agreement with Manchester United over Romelu Lukaku’s price, with the Premier League side holding out for an offer of £62 million.

Romelu Lukaku netted 27 goals in his first year at Old Trafford under Jose Mourinho, but only scored 15 times last season and lost his place to Marcus Rashford as Solskjaer’s lead striker towards the end of the season.

The Belgian has hinted at a move to Inter by branding Antonio Conte, the ‘best manager in the world’. ‘It’s good to see Conte joined Inter, for me, he is the best manager in the world,’ he told Premium Sport.

‘I’ve already taken a decision about the future, but I can’t reveal it because I have a contract with Manchester United and because I respect the club.’
