Man Utd transfer news: Manchester united assertively asked for Inter Milan star defender Milan Skriniar in exchange of Romelu Lukaku.
Inter Milan have contacted Manchester United to inquire about the services of Romelu Lukaku. Although, the Belgian International did not had a great campaign, yet the Italian club still seems interested in him.
Further, according to a report by, Times, Antonio Conte is keen to sign Lukaku should he become the new manager of Inter Milan.
On the other hand, in an interaction with Metro earlier, the Manchester United striker has confessed his desires to play in Italy.
“Playing in Serie A is a dream, it would be really a dream. I hope to be able to play sooner or later, even if at the moment I am focused on the United.” said Romelu Lukaku.
Hence, compelling the Nerazzurris to sign the services of the star striker and are reportedly willing to offer £30 million plus Ivan Perisic for Lukaku.
However, the Independent quoted, the Red Devils are no longer interested in bringing Perisic and would demand Milan Skriniar instead of the Croatian International.
Manchester United have their major concerns in defense, with all the underwhelming resources at the back except Victor Lindelof, the Red Devils are in immediate need of defensive reinforcements. Thus, Milan Skriniar is a viable option for the Ole Solskjaer’s side.
Additionally, Romelu Lukaku costed Manchester United a fortune, hence, the demands by Manchester United seems justified. However, considering the importance of Skriniar in Inter Milan, the Italian club might withdraw from the negotiations.
Additionally, Skriniar never hired an agent because he admires his club and allegedly wants to retire at Inter Milan, which makes Manchester United’s task even more tough.
Nevertheless, further advancements are yet to be known, adding further, a possible exit of Mauro Icardi can help in the agreement of Manchester United’s demands.
How twitter reacted?
Good stuff. When the Perisic speculation resurfaced this week I wrote that United should be bold and demand Skriniar instead, if Inter really want Lukaku. https://t.co/EyrTodMaEw

#Skriniar in the swap deal is laughable
1. This guy literally fired his agent because he wanted to stay at Inter and make it a 4 year renewal
2. He has said before he’d be happy to retire with #Inter
3. He wouldn’t want to go to that Europa club anyway https://t.co/iMrf7skdyN

If Inter Milan are ready to offer cash plus perisic for Lukaku, then I pity Manchester United because that gesture has a lot to say about perisic's quality and worth pic.twitter.com/NHNERBuXJi
