Man Utd reject £54m bid from Inter Milan for Lukaku as Conte applies pressure on Italian giants to sign Belgian striker – The Sun

MAN UNITED have reportedly rejected a £54million bid from Inter Milan for Romelu Lukaku.

Antonio Conte has expressed his desire to bring the Belgian striker to the San Siro this summer but their latest offer has been rebuffed.

Conte's Inter face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Man United in Singapore today and Lukaku has been left out of the squad completely.

Inter's bid comes following Conte's desperate plea for the Italian giants to sign the 26-year-old as he has no strikers for the upcoming campaign.

Former Chelsea boss Conte said: "I think frustrated is a big word. He is a United player. That is the reality.

"You know I like this player. I tried to bring him in Chelsea.

"Today Lukaku is a United player.

"At this moment we are talking about a player from another club.

"I consider him an important player for us to have a good improvement. At the same time, there is a market, we know very well our situation."

While United trained on Friday, he watched on from the touchline with the club putting his absence down to a knock.

But SunSport exclusively revealed earlier this week that the Italian giants are getting cold feet over paying the fee.

Lukaku signed for United from Everton two years ago for £75million.
