Lukaku reveals when his future will be decided amid €85m Inter links

Date published: Saturday 13th July 2019 5:34

Romelu Lukaku has put a timescale on when his future will be clarified, as talk of a move to Inter Milan hots up.

The Manchester United striker has been identified as a top target by Antonio Conte, whose need for a new striker may increase with the potential departure of Mauro Icardi.

The controversial Argentine was sent home from Inter’s pre-season training camp in Lugano today with little explanation, with the Italian giants confirming via Twitter that the striker will not be involved in their pre-season tour of Asia.

Icardi has been linked with Man Utd in the past, but the Red Devils have since withdrawn their interest – while a shock report on Thursday suggested that Liverpool are now candidates to sign him.

Lukaku is Conte’s main target to replace Icardi, and the Belgian striker provided a major update after United’s 2-0 win over Perth Glory – a game he sat out due to injury.

“You guys will know something next week,” Lukaku revealed to reporters when asked if he had made a decision over a potential transfer.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was also questioned about the striker’s future, but said: “At the moment there is no proposal we are considering.”

United are understood to have raised their asking price for the 26-year-old, who still has three years left on his contract.
