Romelu Lukaku to miss Manchester United vs Inter Milan

Manchester United have received a £142 million (€160m) offer from Real Madrid for Paul Pogba.

The French midfielder has already declared his desire to move this summer and take up a new challenge.

And now Sport report a huge offer has been sent from Los Blancos, with Zinedine Zidane eager to add his compatriot.

United have already made moves to replace Pogba, agreeing terms with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The Mail claim the Serbian has struck a deal over a €6m (£5.4m) salary, while Lazio are waiting for a €90m (£81.6m) offer, according to Gazzetta.

United have already submitted €75m (£68mm) plus €15m (£13.6m), the report adds, but the Italians want the full fee guaranteed.

United target Bruno Fernandes appears to be off, after crying at the final whistle after a 2-1 loss to Valencia. But remains to be seen whether the Portuguese midfielder is an alternative to Milinkovic-Savic or an additional target.

Sevilla star Wissam Ben Yedder has handed United a boost by snubbing a move to China.

The France international has knocked back a move to Beijing Synobo Guoan and L’Equipe maintain he is waiting for United or Paris Saint-Germain to step up their interest.

The 28-year-old could replace Romelu Lukaku, with United ready to let him go finally, having omitted him from their squad to face Kristiansund.

Tuttosport claim the deadline is set from United at seven days from now, meaning Inter Milan and Juventus must rush through negotiations to find a compromise.

While HLN insist the deadline is even earlier this Thursday. Despite 12 more days until the transfer deadline, United are adamant the sale must be completed well in advance to make sure they have enough time to sign a replacement.

Blaise Matuidi is eager to join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, according to Corriere di Torino. The 32-year-old may represent a cheaper, short-term replacement for Paul Pogba.

Matteo Darmian and Alexis Sanchez could be on their way out, both joined Lukaku in being omitted from the squad that travelled to Oslo.

The Italian full-back is attracting interest fro Barcelona, report Mundo Deportivo, with the player available for £10m.
