The 26-year-old is said to be new Nerazzurri boss Antonio Conte's preferred choice for his main striker, and Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio has confirmed that the clubs are in talks over the Belgium worldwide.

Sky Sports News reporter Solhekol has now confirmed that Manchester United are still working on a potential deal for the England global.

Ever since Sergej Milinkovic-Savic returned to Lazio from his holiday, the stories surrounding a potential move to Manchester United have died down a little. You just want good players and good people, ' the Norwegian told the club's official website.

"We'll see what happens".

Antonio Conte will welcome an important reinforcement later today in Nicolò Barella, who is due to sign on a €12-million loan with an obligation to buy for €25 million.

Chelsea held by Bohemians in Lampard’s first match in charge
Lampard will be hoping to get his first win on Saturday when the Blues face St Patrick's Athletic at Richmond Park. New Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admitted his side need to boost their fitness after a draw with Bohemians .

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

What's more is that he is backed up by the likes of Anthony Martial, Alexis Sanchez and Mason Greenwood - so even if Lukaku does end up leaving this summer, United would still have more than enough depth at centre-forward going into next season.

Furthermore, the Italian side will have to consider potential Financial Fair Play repercussions if they were to break the bank on the Belgium global, as Manchester United are said to be unwilling to take back a player as a makeweight.

And in Conte he has an admirer who has tried to sign him on multiple occasions previously, first when coach of Juventus in 2014 and then when at Chelsea three years later.

The Old Trafford outfit shipped 54 goals in 38 games in the Premier League to raise questions about their defence under Solskjaer. The Belgian global enjoyed a fruitful first season with the Red Devils, but struggled to repeat the success in the 2018-19 campaign, which saw him fall behind Marcus Rashford in the pecking order.
