Cape Town - Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku looks poised to join Inter Milan in the off-season, after reportedly agreeing terms on a lucrative contract.

Lukaku has recently dropped down the pecking order at Old Trafford with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sometimes preferring to play Marcus Rashford as the club's main striker.

The 26-year-old has scored 42 goals in 96 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils, with 15 of those coming in the current campaign.

It's understood that Solskjaer will not stand in his way if he wants to find regular football elsewhere, with recent reports linking him heavily with a move to Inter Milan.

And today's reports in Gazzetta Dello Sport continue to back up previous rumours by claiming that Lukaku agreed on a deal in principle to move to Inter on a little less than his £250,000-a-week wages at United.

The terms were apparently ironed out when Lukaku visited Italy earlier this month and were conditional on Inter qualifying for next year's Champions League, which they did on the final day of the season.

The main issue still to resolve remains between the clubs, with Gazzetta Dello Sport saying that Inter value Lukaku at £55 million, while United - who signed him in 2017 for £75 million - want closer to £62 million for him.
