Romelu Lukaku’s quest to move to the Serie A suffered another huge blow on Tuesday, August 6, as Manchester United snubbed a new £68 million bid from Inter Milan.

According to UK Express, the Belgian forward is wanted by the Serie A side, but Red Devils chiefs are insisting on the £75m they splashed on him at Everton.

Sky Sports sources revealed that Ed Woodward rejected the fresh offer tabled by Inter Milan on behalf of the club, stressing that Man United are ready to sell Lukaku, but will not replace him.

Lukaku could still make the switch after Thursday's transfer deadline as the Serie A window remains open until August 18.

Lukaku was previously linked with a move to Juventus earlier this week as Man United were in talks with Paulo Dybala over a potential swap deal.

The deal was later called off after Dybala's agents were demanding massive sum from signing on fee as well as the player’s outrageous salary demand by the forward.

Reports now suggest Inter are now in the driving seat to sign Lukaku with Antonio Conte a big fan.

The Inter Milan boss said: "We continue to work on it in the best possible way.

"I understand there are some gaps that need to be filled but at the moment I am very hopeful that this will happen.

"With Lukaku, we are talking about a good player, a striker I tried to buy in the past when I was Chelsea's coach.
