Romelu Lukaku is the subject of an official approach from Inter Milan after talks with Manchester United on Thursday.
Inter Milan sporting director Piero Ausilio met with United club officials and it is understood United want a cash-only £75m fee from the Serie A club if they are to sell the Belgium striker.
“It was an official approach between two important clubs. We’ll see what happens.
“All the players we’re following are targets we’ve agreed with Antonio Conte. We want to satisfy his request within certain financial parameters.”
Inter’s only proposal has been a smaller fee for a two-year loan with an obligation to buy for a much larger sum spread over the next couple of years, however the total of that deal comes in short of United’s valuation.
Sky Sports News understands Lukaku wants to move after feeling devalued after being made to feel like United’s second-choice striker in the second half of last season.
Lukaku is staying professional and even reported for United’s pre-season training early.
He is under contract until 2022 but it is understood he wants to move and United would sell at the right price.
