Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio affirmed the Serie A club have made an “official approach” to Manchester United for Romelu Lukaku.
Joined striker Lukaku has risen as a transfer target for Inter, who sent officials to England to attempt to reach a deal for the Belgium international.
The Manchester United striker has made it clear to the club’s hierarchy that he is cheerful of leaving Old Trafford after being told he won’t be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-decision striker in 2019-20.
Entomb’s new manager Antonio Conte has made the Belgian his ideal objective in the mid year market, having recently targeted the forward at earlier clubs.
Ausilio arrived back in Milan on Thursday and he told columnists: “We had a gathering with Manchester United for Lukaku.
“It was an official approach between two important clubs. We’ll see what happens.
“All the players we’re following are targets we’ve agreed with Antonio Conte. We want to satisfy his solicitation inside certain financial parameters.”
