Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku could be sold for €100m (£86m) this summer, according to reports in the Italian media.
While the Belgian international has said he is happy to stay at the San Siro, the Serie A champions are thought to be considering a potential sale due to the club’s financial situation.
Manchester City and Chelsea have both been linked with Lukaku in recent weeks, although the Citizens are believed to favour a move for Tottenham’s Harry Kane instead. However, supporters on Twitter feel Lukaku would be a better option, especially considering his asking price:
Pay them and run ,that is a great deal.

This is genuinely so much better than spending 150 million for Kane. Please be smart.

It should be pointed out that Lukaku did struggle somewhat during his last spell in England with Manchester United but there can be no argument about his goalscoring record.
Lukaku scored 30 goals in 44 games for Inter last season, while, for Belgium, he has bagged a very impressive 63 goals in 97 appearances. His performances at the European Championships have also been excellent so far and that has undoubtedly influenced some fans’ thoughts on whether City should sign him.
