ROMELU LUKAKU’S AGENT Romelu Lukaku’s agent Federico Pastorello said Inter are serious about signing the Manchester United striker but warned the Serie A club must make a move.

Lukaku continues to be linked with Antonio Conte’s Inter, having acknowledged a desire to play in Italy and hinted his future could be away from Old Trafford.

The 26-year-old Belgium international joined United from Everton for £75million in 2017 and the Premier League giants want to recoup that fee as Inter circle.

After meeting Inter officials on Wednesday, Pastorello told reporters: “Nothing new. We met each other to understand better the situation. We will see what [Inter] is going to decide. 

It is not on us. If the player wants to move [to Inter] they need to hurry. He [Lukaku] is a true target. It doesn’t mean it will be official.

He added: “I think that the deal is not simple to reach, anyway.”

Lukaku – contracted to the Red Devils until 2022 with the option of a further year – scored 12 Premier League goals as United finished sixth in 2018-19, missing out on Champions League qualification.
