Coach explains why Man Utd’s Lukaku asking price is a bargain

Romelu Lukaku’s ‘first coach’ Erwin Woski thinks that the Manchester United striker is worth “all the money that Inter could possibly spend on him”.

Just two years after joining the Old Trafford giants, the 26-year-old is keen to move on to pastures new, with Serie A side Inter Milan eager to bring him to the San Siro.

United reportedly received a 60 million euros (£54million) bid from Inter last week, which was rejected out of hand as it falls well short of their £75million valuation.

And Woski reckons Lukaku is worth his weight in gold as he is a guaranteed goalscorer, he told FC Inter News (via Sport Witness): “I think he could score between 15 and 20 goals a season, as long as he signs for Inter soon and not possibly during the championship.

“Let’s talk about the top scorer of the Belgian national team. He is still young and has a bright future ahead.

“Of course, the Italian championship is very defensive. Lukaku is very fast and needs space to unleash his power. So we’ll see. But I have no doubts about his quality and the price.

“He is worth all the money that Inter could possibly spend on him. Indeed, it is absolutely not too much.”
