Paper Talk: Man Utd snub Inter swap bid; Liverpool want £21m for starlet

Date published: Monday 10th June 2019 8:21

Manchester United have snubbed the chance to swap Romelu Lukaku for an Inter Milan star, while Liverpool are demanding £21m for a top youngster, according to Monday’s papers.



Manchester United have reportedly snubbed a swap deal from Inter Milan for Romelu Lukaku with Croatia winger Ivan Perisic being offered in return for the striker.

The Serie A giants look set to part company with the Croatian, who was a major target for Jose Mourinho during his time in charge at Old Trafford.

Over the weekend, Gazzetta dello Sport revealed that Perisic had been offered to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as part of a deal which would see Lukaku head in the opposite direction.

But the Italian publication claims that proposal was rejected, with United holding out for more than €70m (£62m) for their Belgian forward.

New Inter boss Antonio Conte is known to be a big admirer of Lukaku, whose future in Manchester remains uncertain – with Solskjaer preferring Marcus Rashford as his central striker towards the end of the season.
