Romelu Lukaku’s Inter move looks to be off as Nerazzurri turn to Everton target Rafael Leao


While the Belgian has travelled with Man United throughout their pre-season tour, Lukaku has yet to compete in any of United’s warm-up matches.

Lukaku’s move to Inter has stalled over the financial terms.

A 75 million pound signing from Everton, Man United are obviously keen to avoid selling Lukaku for a loss.
But is the deal now dead?

Why Romelu Lukaku’s Inter move may be off

On Tuesday, several Italian papers suggest that Inter’s hopes of signing Lukaku might be over.

That follows a meeting between Inter president Steven Zhang and club manager Antonio Conte.

Starting with Repubblica, it’s claimed Lukaku’s Inter move isn’t set to happen at the striker is too expensive.

Corriere della Sera report that Zhang is set to walk away from the Lukaku deal because of the price tag.

On a slightly different note, Corriere dello Sport report that while Inter haven’t given up on trying to sign Lukaku, the Belgian’s asking price is considered too expensive by Inter.
L#Inter ha fretta, non molla #Lukaku ma vira su #Leao del Lilla. Il belga viene ritenuto troppo caro ma la situazione potrebbe cambiare vendendo bene #Icardi e #Perisic. Attenzione al nome di #Biraghi per la fascia sinistra

Finally, Gazzetta dello Sport claim that Zhang has said ‘no’ to Man United’s 83 million euro asking price for Lukaku.
📍 Nel vertice di Nanchino #Zhang ha detto no agli 83 milioni per #Lukaku. Arriveranno due attaccanti, uno sarà giovane (#Leao?) mentre si apre qualche spiraglio per la cessione di #Icardi al #Napoli

Nerazzurri turn to Everton target Rafael Leao

In recent days, Everton fans will likely have come across reports linking the Toffees with a possible move for Lille forward Rafael Leao.

However, the Italian press on Tuesday say that Leao is also a target for Inter.

L’Equipe has previously reported that four clubs have posted offers for Leao.

Everton offered Lille €37.5m, Valencia’s bid is €35m plus €5m in add-ons, Napoli proposed a €32.5m bid plus a 10% sell-on clause, while Aston Villa’s offer was left undefined.

While the Italian press don’t say that Inter have made their move for Leao, the papers note that the 20-year-old Portuguese forward could sign for half the price of Man United’s Lukaku.
