Manchester United news: Odds slashed on Romelu Lukaku making summer move to Inter Milan after dropping Serie A hint
Romelu Lukaku has again admitted this week it would be ‘a dream’ to play in Serie A and there is a huge chance he could leave Manchester United in the summer for Inter Milan.
Back in October, the Belgium striker said he would be open to a move to Juventus, as he told Gazzetta dello Sport: “Why not? I hope it happens.”
Lukakau, who moved to Old Trafford from Everton in July 2017 for a fee of £75million, is one of several United players whose future at the club remains in doubt, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer planning to rebuild his squad in the summer.
And according to betting company, Oddschecker, 69% of bets in the last 24 hours have been on Lukaku moving to the San Siro, making Inter favourites to sign him.

Juventus are second favourites at 8/1 to secure Lukaku’s signature, with Atletico Madrid third at 20/1 to finalise a deal.
Lukaku, who is contracted to United until June 2022, has had to make do with a place on the bench this season, playing second-fiddle to Marcus Rashford, but has still managed to net 12 times in the Premier League.
Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek said: “Lukaku may as well already be playing in Italy the amount of use he has been to Manchester United.
“He is not the only one woefully short of form though, and won’t be the only player heading for the exit at Old Trafford this summer.”
On Wednesday, Lukaku was a 72nd minute substitute, coming on for Andreas Pereira, but could not prevent United from losing 2-0 to Manchester City.
