UNCOVERED: The fees Inter Milan paid Man Utd for Lukaku and Young

It's been revealed the fees Inter Milan paid Manchester United last season for Ashley Young and Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku left United last summer for the Nerazzurri while former captain Young departed in January.

Inter's accounts showed Lukaku joined Inter last summer for a fee believed to be £73.9m, however Inter's accounts show the Italian side in fact paid €74.162 - around £66.75m.

United were holding out for £80m for Lukaku as they were reluctant to take a hit on the £75m they paid Everton for him in 2017.

Ashley Young left United for Inter in January and cost precisely €1.729m (£1.55m). United communicated at the time they had received €1.5m, plus some add-ons.
