Would you be surprised if, come the start of the 2019 / 2020 season, Romelu Lukaku was no longer at the club?
To be honest, I certainly wouldn’t.
A matter of days ago, here at Vital Manchester United, we ran an article, Click Here, that suggested the 26-year-old Belgian striker was being linked with a move to the Serie A club, Inter Milan.
Today, we have our suspicions that move may be a lot closer to being completed than first thought.
Lurking in the pages of the Metro, is the inference that Lukaku has already agreed on personal terms with the Italian club and has negotiated a 5-year deal that, if completed, will see the player earn an additional £6.6 million in bonuses.
However, we should point out that no transfer fee has, as of yet, been agreed with our source reporting that United would want a minimum of £62 million for a player who, I believe, peaked eighteen months ago and has steadily gone downhill since.
But, if the deal is done and with Alexis Sanchez also surplus to requirements, it’s fair to say that United, this summer, will be in the market for a striker.
