Romelu Lukaku is set to leave Manchester United (Picture: Getty)Manchester United star Romelu Lukaku flew to Italy to hold talks with Inter Milan representatives and has agreed a deal to join the Serie A giants.
The Belgian is surplus to requirements at Old Trafford and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made it clear he will not stand in Lukaku’s way should he seek regular first-team football this summer.
United paid £75million for Lukaku in 2017 and hope to recoup much of that fee in any deal with Inter, though they value him at closer to £55m.
The Italian giants guaranteed their Champions League spot on the final day of the Serie A season on Sunday and Antonio Conte is set to take charge at the San Siro.

Lukaku, for his part, is open to leaving Old Trafford and Gazzette dello Sport claim he was in Milan earlier this month to discuss a move.
The transfer – which was conditional on Inter’s qualification for the Champions League – was agreed in principle with Lukaku set to earn slightly less than his £250,000-a-week salary at Old Trafford.
