Man Utd warming to taking Icardi in Inter Milan Lukaku offer

Manchester United are warming to the idea of Mauro Icardi arriving from Inter Milan in a swap for Romelu Lukaku.

The Daily Express says United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is prepared to listen to offers for wantaway striker Lukaku - but wants at least £75m for the striker.

Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte is keen on the forward and could offer Icardi in part-exchange, while Lukaku has already said he would be keen on a move to play under the former Chelsea boss.

United were thought to want a cash-only deal for the Belgium striker - the Red Devils paid Everton £75million for Lukaku in 2017, and want to recoup that money for a player who has scored 42 goals in 96 games for the club.

But now it appears United are interested in a part-exchange between Argentina striker Icardi and Lukaku.
