Manchester United

Lukaku pursuit frustrating Inter boss

20th July 2019, 10:35 by Bobbie Jackson

Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte admits he is growing frustrated as he continues to pursue Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku.

Two years on from joining from Everton for an initial £75million, Lukaku is keen to move onto pastures new and link up with the manager he spurned to join the Old Trafford giants.

United sneaked ahead of Conte's Chelsea to complete that move in 2017, and now the Italian is looking to link up with him at Inter, who face Solskjaer's side at Singapore's National Stadium on Saturday.

"I think frustrated is a big word," he said in English when asked about the inability to complete a deal.

"Lukaku is a United player and this is the reality. You know very well that I like this player, but also in the past when I was Chelsea's coach and I tried to bring him to Chelsea.

"But I repeat, today Lukaku is a player of United and this is the reality and this is the truth."
