Earlier today, we covered a story from Sky Sports which claimed that Inter Milan officials could be in the UK this week to discuss a potential deal for Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku.
Following the report from the British media, reliable Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has given his take on the situation. He backs up the claim that Inter directors will be in Manchester soon, even as early as today (he posted the update last night).
Lukaku’s future remains up in the air, but now it feels as though there’s a real possibility that the 26-year-old could seal a transfer away from United during this summer.
The fact that directors are flying over to Manchester to meet face-to-face with United chiefs is important. Why else would they do that unless talks were heading in the right direction?
I’ve mentioned it before but Lukaku’s 42 goals in 96 games is an excellent return. However, for whatever reason, the fans haven’t fully taken to the Belgian striker…
If he is let go by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Edward Woodward, the search for a replacement would have to begin almost immediately. But with other areas of the squad still looking depleted, the Reds will have to act extremely quickly if they’re to fill all those holes during this window.
