Romelu Lukaku may be set to stay at Manchester United

Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio met Manchester United's head of corporate development Matt Judge and was told that the Premier League giants want €83m before they agree to sell Lukaku.

Antonio Conte's side met United in recent days for discussions, but PA Sport understands that Inter has been struggling to fund a deal for the Belgium worldwide.

Lukau has previously spoken about his desire to play in Serie A but the club have so far failed in their attempts to reach an agreement with United over a fee.

Reportedly, Lukaku has even agreed a £180,000-a-week deal with the Nerazurri which would see him join the club ahead of next season.

The report claims Inter can only muster £60m over three years, with the remaining £15m to be paid depending on Lukaku's performances.

The Nerazzurri initially proposed a two-year loan deal with an obligation to buy, but United were not interested.

The Italian club also looked at the possibility of a player-swap to secure the services of Lukaku, however, United rejected the possibility of striker Mauro Icardi or midfielder Radja Nainggolan being included in any deal.

"We want to satisfy his request within certain financial parameters".

Inter Milan will return with a new bid for Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku of £60 million plus add-ons, a source has told ESPN FC.

"You guys will know something next week", was Lukaku's cryptic response on Saturday, as per the Evening Standard.

Lukaku is now with United in Australia as they prepare to face Leeds United in a pre-season friendly.
