Three-time European champions Manchester United might need a new striker this summer as it looks like striker Romelu Lukaku is on his way out of the club amidst strong interest from Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan.

Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has made Lukaku the top transfer target for Inter Milan during this summer’s transfer window.

Conte is clearly a big fan of Lukaku whom he tried to sign while he was a Chelsea manager.

Manchester United have resolved to recoup all the money spent on Lukaku amidst the interest from Inter Milan who might need to pay as much as the £75m transfer paid by the Red Devils for the Belgian international star.

Lukaku signed for Manchester United from Everton to make him the second most expensive player at the club after star midfielder Paul Pogba.

Inter Milan are open to the idea of a swap deal involving Inter Milan striker Icardi and Lukaku.

Argentine international Icardi is a controversial footballer and Manchester United have serious doubts over him if the swap deal between the two parties will cover.

Mauro Icardi has played for clubs like Barcelona and Sampdoria before representing Inter Milan having joined from fellow Italian Serie A club Sampdoria.
