Man Utd reject £63m bid

Marcus Rashford put pen to paper over a new four-year deal at Manchester United on Monday.

The 21-year-old started 17 of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 21 Premier League games in charge last season, 15 of these as the central striker.

In comparison, Romelu Lukaku only started 10 Premier League games under the Norwegian boss.

The Belgian striker has long been linked with a move away from United and only a few days ago did Sky Sports report that Lukaku was subject to a loan offer with an obligation to buy from Internazionale, worth £62.8 million.

Inter’s bid was said to be just £9 million up front as a two-year loan fee with an obligation to purchase Lukaku for £54 million in 2021.

However, Italian outlet Tuttosport, as cited by the Manchester Evening News, are claiming that we are not keen on this deal as the fee is spread over a longer period of time than we would expect.

Antonio Conte is the manager of Inter and he was interested in signing the 26-year-old two years ago when he was in charge of Chelsea. However, Lukaku opted to join us in a £75 million deal from Everton instead.

The Serie A club have wealthy owners so it’s not out of the question that we could eventually come to a deal this summer. However, one would think we’d need to sign a replacement beforehand as Rashford is the only other proven striker on our books.
