Inter Milan have made an offer of €80m (£73.5m) for Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, according to Italian journalist Tancredi Palmieri. It is believed that the Nerazzurri have proposed to pay €75m plus €5m in bonuses:
Inter have bid 75m€ + 5m€ add-ons for Lukaku!
Differently from previous bids instantly rejected, Manchester United have not rejected it, after Juventus letting now Dybala doesn’t want to move.

Some supporters on Twitter believe that the Red Devils should take the money, while others think United should stick to their guns and hold out for their asking price:

It remains to be seen if this new offer is genuine, but with Lukaku’s move to Juventus seemingly in tatters following Paulo Dybala‘s unwillingness to make the switch to Old Trafford, Inter’s reported bid may well be considered.
The major concern for United, though, would be whether they could find a replacement for the Belgian international before the transfer deadline. The window shuts at 6pm on Thursday so any transfer to strengthen the forward line would have to be agreed very quickly in the next few days.
