Inter Milan, Manchester United agree £77m fee on Lukaku
Romelu Lukaku will undergo a medical with Inter Milan today, Thursday, after they agreed a £77m fee with Manchester United, People & Politics reliably gathered.
The fee is worth an initial £65m with £12m in add-ons, and Lukaku will sign a five-year deal.
On Wednesday evening, Lukaku’s agent, Federico Pastorello, posted an Instagram image of himself and the striker on a private jet with the caption: “Ready to take off…direction Milan”, and the location set at Brussels Airport.
Pastorello had been in the UK for crucial talks with United, while his client remained in Belgium where he has been training with former club Anderlecht.
United had expected the 26-year-old to report back to their Carrington training ground on Tuesday.
The Belgium international angered the club last week for leaking private training data via Twitter and was told, via Pastorello, to delete the post.
The 26-year-old is keen to leave Old Trafford in this window having not played a minute of pre-season for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and feels he has been treated unfairly since losing his place when Solskjaer took charge in December.
Lukaku had looked set to join Juventus after a swap deal was agreed involving Paulo Dybala, in Italy.
However, United ended their pursuit in the Argentine forward due to his hesitation over a move to Old Trafford and his wage demands.
