Inter Milan dismiss claims of missing Lukaku fee payment to Man Utd

Inter Milan have dismissed claims they may be forced to sacrifice a star to Manchester United to cover an outstanding installment owed for Romelu Lukaku's transfer fee.

The Daily Mail claims Inter have not, in fact, missed a payment and claims that United are now looking to take Lautaro Martinez or Milan Skriniar from the Serie A club as compensation have been described as far-fetched.

However, United are keeping a close eye on moves by Inter's Chinese owners Suning to secure additional finance for the club. The retail giant has pledged to keep supporting Inter despite announcing last week that it was ceasing operations at Chinese champions Jiangsu FC.

A club statement from Inter read: "While Suning have confirmed their commitment to financially support the club with or without additional external support, it is also sensible and prudent to look outside. With that in mind, Suning have appointed key advisers in Asia to work with them to find suitable partners."
