United set Romelu Lukaku asking price

Manchester United are reportedly reluctant to sell Romelu Lukaku this summer unless they receive a transfer package of around £80m.

The Belgian's future has been a regular discussion point in the past few weeks after a disappointing 2018/19 season where he managed just 15 goals in all competitions.

According to The Mail, the marksman is the subject of interest from both Juventus and Inter Milan with the latter said to have already agreed on provisional personal terms.

However, United are unlikely to sanction Lukaku's sale for a reduced fee and they are set to demand £5m more than the £75m sum paid to sign him from Everton two years ago.

Lukaku was regularly benched in favour of Marcus Rashford upfront during the backend of the previous campaign and there are no assurances that the same may not repeat during the 2019/2020 season.

The Belgian has refused to speak on the ongoing speculation regarding his future but he has acknowledged that his representative and United will decide whether he will be plying his trade next term.
