Man Utd offered two Juventus players plus cash for Romelu Lukaku transfer

Juventus are preparing a cash-plus-player bid for Romelu Lukaku in their attempt to outbid Inter Milan for the Manchester United striker.

Inter were believed to be leading the race for wantaway star Lukaku but have been unable to agree a fee with United, who value the striker at £80million.

The delay in agreeing terms has allowed Juve to step in and the Serie A champions are willing to do all that it takes to prise the wantaway Belgian star away from Old Trafford.

According to The Sun , the Turin club are willing to play £10million in cash and also include strikers Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic in the deal.

Dybala is reportedly open to making the switch to Old Trafford but only if the club offers him an improvement on the €7million-a-year deal he currently has with Juve.

Mandzukic may also be open to a fresh start and would offer cover in the No 9 role, with Marcus Rashford expected to start up front for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.

Inter Milan chief executive Beppe Marotta, meanwhile, recently suggested the club will not be increasing their offer for the Manchester United striker.

Paulo Dybala has reportedly been offered to the Red Devils

Lukaku has been left out of United’s travelling squad for Tuesday’s friendly against Kristiansund in Norway, having missed all four matches on their pre-season tour of Australia, Singapore and China due to knocks.

It is understood Lukaku has been the subject of a failed €60m (£54m) bid by Inter, with United giving the Serie A giants a deadline to agree a deal.

But Marotta believes their offer is one that fits the value of Lukaku.
