Premier League giants Manchester United have accepted an offer of £72m for striker Romelu Lukaku from Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan.

This is according to the latest from the stables of the Daily Mail.

Inter Milan have finally made a breakthrough in their quest to sign their top transfer target this summer.

The Nerazzuri made Lukaku their top target thus summer immediately Antonio Conte was appointed their manager.

Former Chelsea manager Conte is a big fan of Lukaku and he made him his number one target for this summer upon his confirmation as the new Inter Milan boss.

He tried to sign the Belgian international striker during his days at Chelsea only for Manchester United to beat him to Lukaku.

Inter Milan had made a lot of bids before the breakthrough on Wednesday.

The £72m fee includes £10m in add-ons according to the aforementioned publication.

Apart from Inter Milan, Juventus were also keen on Lukaku.

The Old Lady were thought to be close to signing him in a swap deal with Paolo Dybala of Juventus but the deal fell through mainly due to the financial demands of Argentine international Dybala as Manchester United failed to reach an agreement with him.
