Manchester United turn down Inter Milan offer for Lukaku


Manchester United have rejected a €60-million bid from Inter Milan for Romelu Lukaku, as they're standing firm in their €80-million valuation.

Lukaku has scored 42 goals in 96 games since joining United from Everton in 2017 but his former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is hoping to bring him to Milan this summer.

Conte confirmed his interest in the Belgian striker this week and admits it's been 'frustrating' trying to complete a deal.

"Lukaku is a United player and this is the reality. You know very well that I like this player, but also in the past when I was Chelsea's coach and I tried to bring him to Chelsea.

"But I repeat, today he is a player of United and this is the reality and this is the truth."

Pushed on Inter's interest in him, Conte said: "I think that at this moment, I repeat, we're talking about a player of another club.

"For this reason, I think that it's right (we) don't talk about Lukaku because I have great respect for United.

"As I said before, for sure, I like this player and I consider him an important player for us to have a good improvement. But, at the same time, there is a market, a transfer market.

"We know very well which is our situation at this moment. We'll see, we'll see what happens but now, for sure, Lukaku is a United player."
