£70 million move to happen? after agent admits powerhouse Lukaku has asked for Manchester United deal to happen
The agent of has admitted that Romelu Lukaku has expressed his desire to leave Manchester United during this summer transfer window.
Lukaku has struggled to maintain a starting berth in the United side under new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with Marcus Rashford often preferred as the focal point of the United attack.
The big powerhouse striker looks nothing like the man that helped United finish second in the Premier League last season and has become a hinderance for the Red Devils, failing to score on a regular basis or even hold up the ball like he is supposed too.
And that has led to speculation in the media that he could be departing the club at this summer window, with the Likes of Juventus reportedly eyeing up a transfer deal.
The Belgian forward has been linked with a move to Inter Milan this summer, given his affection for new boss Antonio Conte.
And according to Federico Pastorello, Lukaku has told the club he wants to go.
“Yes, he’s [Lukaku] publicly expressed his plans and desires. We’ll see what happens,” he told reporters on the Daily Express website.
“Lukaku is a dream (for Inter) and is not an easy deal to realise.
“For me nothing is impossible.”
Lukaku has all the physical attributes to be a real superstar in the Premier League and it has been a shock to see that he has been unable to break into the starting line-up of Solskjaer, who has seen a number of players pick up the pace since his arrival just before Christmas.
However, he is looking like a man that needs a new challenge and a fresh start as United are possibly heading into a different style of playing with Rashford, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez.
So if the right offer arrives this summer then United should seriously consider it, as they do not want a player on the bench causing unrest.
