Romelu Lukaku: Manchester United aim to land £36 million rated striker to replace Lukaku, if he leaves for Inter Milan this summer.
Manchester United are looking for suitable replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who is highly interested in moving to Inter Milan this season, after the Italian club showed massive interests in him.
Thus, according to a report by the Mirror, the Red Devils are set to hire Wissam Ben Yedder from Sevilla to replace the Belgian International this summer.
The French striker has been phenomenal for Sevilla last season after he amassed 29 goals and 9 assists in 47 appearances for the Spanish club across all the competitions.
Hence, arousing interests from several club, but Manchester United have significant advantage over the other interested parties, including Barcelona and PSG, as the former want to replace Luis Suarez with the French International and latter fancy to replace Edison Cavani with him this summer.
Thus, Manchester United have to battle with these mega clubs, but since, the above two mentioned clubs cannot guarantee him the regular playing time, the Red Devils have a significant advantage over the rest to lure the player.
According to the France Football, a fee of around £36 million could be enough to persuade Sevilla’s new manager Julen Lopetegui to part ways with the striker.
Although, Ben Yedder’s move will only happen if Lukaku is able to join Inter Milan, since he has not handed a transfer request to the club, and the hierarchy at Manchester United have not been satisfied with the offers proposed by Nerazzurris.
So, it is upon Antonio Conte to step up his chase for the Belgian International, as he reportedly finds Lukaku as a crucial addition in his rebuild plans. Thus, if Inter Milan capture the 26-year-old striker. Ole Solskjaer will surely approach Sevilla for the transfer.
