Manchester United are holding out for a transfer fee of £75m before considering selling Romelu Lukaku this summer, according to Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol.

The Belgian striker’s future at Old Trafford has been something of a source of speculation in recent weeks following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment at the club.

Lukaku returned to pre-season training last week and he remains a Manchester United player for the time being.

The striker has been linked with a potential move to Inter Milan this summer but there is not yet any official news of such a transfer.

Now, Sky Sports News reporter Solhekol has claimed that Manchester United are holding out for a significant fee for Lukaku before considering selling the former Everton forward.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Solhekol said: “Romelu Lukaku’s agent tells Sky Italy it’s ‘a difficult dream’ for Inter Milan to sign Lukaku.

“Manchester United willing to listen to offers but want £75m. Lukaku has returned early to United for preseason training.”

Manchester United will be looking to break back into the top four next season after a difficult campaign last term.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term and without a trophy after Solskjaer was brought in as Jose Mourinho’s replacement back in December.

Lukaku scored 12 goals in 32 Premier League games for Manchester United last season.
