Even though it looked like Romelu Lukaku was going to become Internazionale’s latest reinforcement, Manchester United’s officials continue to reject their bids for the striker.
Hence, Juventus have reportedly entered the race to sign the Belgian stud, as he still eyes a move out of Old Trafford and claimed playing in the Italian Serie A was a dream for him growing up.
The Nerazzurri offered €80 million for Lukaku, but United reportedly demand at least €83 million for his services, a price the Italians aren’t willing to meet, according to Goal.
Therefore, Juventus have stepped up on their pursuit for another striker and they could try and send Paulo Dybala to Old Trafford, as Maurizio Sarri believes a Lukaku-Ronaldo duo would make more sense than pairing Cristiano with the Argentinean.
Dybala was reportedly on Manchester United’s radar earlier in the season so Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward would most likely easily agree on a move for him, opening the door for Lukaku to join the Old Lady.
The Argentinean has struggled for most of the season and the lack of playing time took a major toll on his ability to impact the game, so he’s likely to agree on a move out of the team to get his career back on track.
As for Inter, Antonio Conte has also tried to lure Roma’s Edin Dzeko to San Siro, but Roma’s officials have been reluctant to lessen their financial expectations on the Bosnia international.
And with Inter’s officials already letting Mauro Icardi know that they don’t want him to be on the team going forward, all Conte has upfront is Lautaro Martinez, who showed glimpses of great talent last season for the Nerazzurri.
We’ll have to wait and see, but what seems clear right now is that Lukaku is not going to be at Old Trafford for much longer and his future will be at the Serie A.
