Inter Milan are set to make a new offer for Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, according to reports.

Just two years after arriving from Everton in an initial £75million deal, the 26-year-old is understood to be welcoming interest from the Serie A giants.

Antonio Conte’s side met United in recent days for discussions, but PA understands that Inter have been struggling to fund a deal for the Belgium international.

The striker missed Saturday’s 2-0 friendly win against Perth Glory due to a knock and fuelled speculation about his future as he left Optus Stadium, telling reporters: “You guys will know something next week”.

And now Sky Sports claims that the Serie A side will make a ‘new offer of £60m plus bonuses’ for Lukaku on a permanent deal.

Inter were hopeful of wrapping up an initial two-year loan deal for Lukaku with payments of £9m, £27m and £27m coming over three consecutive years.

However, it is understood that United had little interest in a loan deal this summer and wanted closer to the £75m they paid for him back in 2017.

The Serie A outfit still hope the new permanent offer will be ‘structured over two or three years’ and will include ‘bonuses’ on top of the £60m to try and meet the Red Devils’ valuation.
