Manchester United has agreed a £73m fee with Inter Milan for Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku, who has already arrived in Italy ahead of a medical, is expected to sign a five-year deal, with the Seria A giants.

SkySports reports that Lukaku has already agreed personal terms with Inter on the basis of a five-year deal worth £150k per week (8.5m euros per year).

This would return United to a race for Mario Mandzukic from Juventus as a replacement for Lukaku.

Lukaku’s agent, Federico Pastorello, had been in the UK for crucial talks with United, while his client remained in Belgium where he has been training with former club Anderlecht.

The Belgium international angered the club last week for leaking private training data via Twitter and was told, via Pastorello, to delete the post.

Lukaku is keen to leave Old Trafford in this window having not played a minute of pre-season for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and feels he has been treated unfairly since losing his place when Solskjaer took charge in December.
