Manchester United could use Inter’s interest in Romelu Lukaku to try to bring Mauro Icardi to Old Trafford.
The Daily Express reports that United are weighing up an approach for Icardi, whom new Inter boss Antonio Conte is willing to sell.
Conte is keen to replace the Argentinian with Lukaku, a player he tried to sign while in charge of Chelsea.
And United want to capitalise by arranging a swap deal which would see Icardi move to the Premier League in place of the Belgian who looks certain to leave Old Trafford in this transfer window.
The Serie A side are desperate to get their former captain off the books and would reportedly be open to such a transfer after the player and his agent, Icardi’s wife Wanda Nara, caused much controversy last season with comments in the media which saw the player stripped of his captaincy and dropped from the team.
Icardi has scored 124 goals in 219 appearances in all competitions for Inter.
