It’s being reported that Manchester United are willing to accept one of two Inter Milan players to settle the debt that the Italian giants still owe the Red Devils for Romelu Lukaku.
According to Metro, Inter Milan still owe Manchester United £43.8million for Romelu Lukaku after he triggered a clause that means the Italians must now pay what’s owed in full.
Part of the original £74million deal included many bonuses and performance related clauses and according to Corriere dello Sport the Belgian has triggered a clause which means Inter must immediately pay the remaining fee of the deal.
According to the Financial Times, Inter Milan are in serious financial problems and the club needs and investment of £142 million in order to take the pressure off the club.
Unfortunately for Manchester United, due to Inter’s financial problems they are unable to finalise their deal so United are willing to accept one of two players as payment.
It’s no secret that Olé Gunnar Solskjaer is looking for a centre-back and Slovakian defender Skriniar may be the solution to their problem.
The 26-year-old very nearly left Inter last season but decided to stay with Inter after winning back Antonio Conte’s trust.
Second on the list of potential debt clearers is Lukaku’s current strike partner, 23-year-old Lautaro Martinez.
The 23-year-old is considered one of the most exciting young forwards around and has been linked with Barcelona and Real Madrid in the past.
So far this season the Argentinian forward has managed to score 13 goals and lay on seven assists meaning the 23-year-old is part of the reason Inter are top of the Serie A table.
