Manchester United may be able to keep hold of striker Romelu Lukaku for next season, despite reports he is set for a move to Inter Milan.
Lukaku lost his place to Marcus Rashford last term after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge and he has since been linked with a move away from Old Trafford.
The Belgium international lost is understood to be a target for the former Chelsea boss and recent rumours claim Inter have seen a player-plus-cash offer rejected by United chiefs.
It’s believed United want about £70million for Lukaku, who seldom featured under Solskjaer last season, and the player himself has been unceasingly flirting with the idea of a move to Italy.
Now, according to ESPN, are reporting that Lukaku could be prepared to stay at Old Trafford beyond the summer if club chiefs are not willing to facilitate an exit.
Their article says that Lukaku is ‘reluctant to speed up the process by formally asking for a transfer’ and will ‘join the preseason tour of Australia, Singapore, China and Norway’ if a deal between the two squads is not reached.
The Red Devils for their part do not want to sell the man they signed from Everton for £75million in 2017.
