Update: Today IS Lukaku day. Multiple outlets report a deal has been agreed with Manchester United for an initial fee of £65 million, with up to £13 million in add-ons. Lukaku’s medical will be tomorrow.
Maybe. Finally. Possibly.
A conclusion to the Romelu Lukaku saga seems to be drawing closer. Inter have had a refreshed bid accepted by Manchester United and are confident in sealing the deal, according to Sky in Italy. Juventus will now be offered the chance to counter Inter’s deal.
As saga’s go, this has been a draining one. The intersection of Inter, Juve, United, Spurs (remember those three hours when it looked like Eriksen could head to United and Dybala to Spurs? Fun times) has made it even harder to get a handle on what’s going on.
Deadlines spur action. With one day remaining in the British transfer window, United have been forced into making a decision. Dybala declining a swap-deal to Manchester should make Inter favourites.
