Inter Turn Their Attentions To Edinson Cavani As They ‘Hit A Wall’ Over Negotiations With Manchester United Over Romelu Lukaku

Inter Milan are starting to prepare a back-up swoop for Paris Saint-Germain's Edinson Cavani

Inter Milan’s proposed move for Romelu Lukaku is on the brink of collapse as they have started to weigh up alternatives to the Manchester United striker.

Lukaku has been linked with a move to Serie A for much of the summer and it appeared Inter were inching closer to landing their target for a fee of around £75million.

But according to Tuttosport, the Italian side have ‘hit a wall’ with United’s demands over the transfer and have turned their attention towards Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguayan’s contract at Paris Saint-Germain expires next summer, and following previous spells at Napoli and Palermo is a proven goal scorer in Serie A. 

A London meeting between United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and Inter chief Piero Ausilio failed to produce an agreement over a fee and it leaves Lukaku facing an uncertain future.

Inter are looking at a two-year loan worth £9m with a view to a permanent £54m move, but United want to recoup most of the £90m fee they paid Everton for the striker two years ago.

Lukaku hinted an end to the saga would come this week after claiming news would develop following United’s clash with Perth Glory on Saturday
