Chelsea Thomas Tunchel’s plans to sign a striker this summer may have finally paid off as Inter Milan is likely to accept a £100-110m bid from the West Londoners.
Should the deal become successful, the Belgian international is expected to sign a five-year contract worth around £212,000 a week for his former club. Lukaku previously spent 7 years at Stamford Bridge when he was initially signed for a fee thought to be worth at least €20m from RSC Anderlecht in 2011.
The red devils had two key deals this summer bringing in Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund for £73million and former Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane who recently joined. Having spent a total of £120m for the new signees, Manchester United will now only bring in a midfielder if one leaves which is likely to be Pogba. At the moment, no new midfielder coming is the likeliest outcome.Leicester City has rejected Arsenal’s recent players plus cash bid for James Madison.
The Gunners reportedly offered Ainsley Maitland Niles and Reiss Nelson to the Foxes to reduce the £60m price tag on the England international but the 2020/2021 FA cup winners are not interested in the duo. Arsenal has been heavily linked with the 23-year-old playmaker as they look forward to completing their fourth major signing this season having secured the services of Nuno Taveres, Albert Lokonga, and Ben White.
