Inter have confirmed that they have made ‘an official approach’ for Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.
Inter officials travelled to England for talks with United, who reportedly quoted them an asking price of €85m.
Sporting director Piero Ausilio was among the Nerazzurri’s entourage as they landed back in Milan on Thursday evening.
“We had a meeting with Manchester United for Lukaku,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“It was an official approach between two important clubs. We’ll see what happens. Conte wants every player we’re trying to sign.”
Ausilio then cracked a joke about Nicolo Barella’s imminent arrival from Cagliari...
“I didn’t even know about it!”
