Manchester United are closing in on selling Romelu Lukaku with Inter Milan director Giuseppe Marotta admitting his club are still working on a deal despite differences in value.
The prolific Belgian has been constantly linked with a move to the Serie A with Inter believed to be the favourites to sign him until Juventus recently entered the picture.
The powerful forward is apparently in demand which works in United’s favour as they can haggle for the price they want or demand players in exchange.
Marotta appears to feel that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are demanding too much for Lukaku but fans are adamant they should stick to their guns.
Whatever the case is behind the scenes, it seems inevitable that the former Everton man will depart this summer.
Marotta (Inter director): “We made an important bid to Man United for Lukaku but Man United ask so much for Romelu. We didn't find an agreement but we're still working for Lukaku. I don't know what will happen on next days, football is so strange.” #mufc [@FabrizioRomano]

The Red Devils are giving Inter a little taste of their own medicine after they refused to sell an ageing Ivan Perisic for less than £50m during Jose Mourinho’s time in charge.
Solskjaer is losing a proven goalscorer so it makes sense to play hardball unless the club recoups the amount they spent on Romelu in the first place.
Fans are hoping this transfer can be dealt with swiftly so the club can focus their attentions elsewhere.
