Inter Milan back with improved offer for Romelu Lukaku

Christian Eriksen and Philippe Coutinho

Romelu Lukaku made the switch from Manchester United to Inter Milan on Thursday.

During his time in England, where he played for the Blues, Everton and United, Lukaku scored 113 Premier League goals, and bagged 42 in all competitions while at Old Trafford.

The 29 year-old also revealed that he is eager to grab the fresh start afforded to him by Burnley with both hands, after joining the Clarets on a half-season loan deal.

Romelu Lukaku is nearing a move away from Manchester United after Inter Milan submitted a fresh bid totalling almost £75 million, sources have told ESPN FC.

However, as a sign of their commitment to Martial, United took to their official website to confirm he will wear the number nine shirt next season, returning to the number he initially wore when he first joined the club.

Lukaku has been linked with a United exit throughout the off-season and the Belgium striker is poised to join Inter before the Premier League transfer window shuts on Thursday.

"There was always that feeling of 'was he fit enough?' And was his style suited to playing football for Manchester United?".

"He will score goals and do well at Inter but unprofessionalism is contagious".

On Friday Solskjaer dismissed the idea that United did bad business in the transfer market.

And he has now admitted that he does not want to work with a target man.

Smalling has fallen down the pecking order following the arrival of £80m centre-back Harry Maguire from Leicester, but Solskjaer wants to keep him at Old Trafford.

After a swap deal with Juventus fell through due to Paulo Dybala's reluctance to go the other way, Lukaku started this week training with former club Anderlecht.

Newcastle United signed Swedish right-back Emil Krafth for a reported £5m fee, while they are also rumoured to be closing in on their former striker Andy Carroll, who is available on a free transfer.

Lukaku inked a contract that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2024.

Later that evening, Pastorello posted a photo on Instagram of them on United and Inter Milan had been some way apart in their valuation, with United wanting to recoup at least the £75m they paid Everton two years ago.
