Manchester United have slapped a massive £80million price tag on out-of-favor striker Romelu Lukaku amid Inter Milan transfer talks
Several reports from Italy and England have already suggested that the Nerazzurri will be looking to land the Belgium international should Antonio Conte be appointed as the new chief of staff.
With Conte’s arrival at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza increasingly likely to happen, the Milanese heavyweights are looking to step up their interest in the 26-year-old.

Mauro Icardi’s future in Italy’s fashion capital still hangs in the balance, which requires Inter to sign a prolific goalscorer as they prepare to challenge Juventus for the Serie A title.
Meanwhile, the former Everton man has not enjoyed the best of seasons, having scored just 12 goals in 32 Premier League appearances this term.
Although he has fallen out of favor with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the second half of the season, the Red Devils are reluctant to give Inter a discount, as they look to get £80 million to sanction Lukaku’s transfer.
