Manchester United have their eye on two Inter Milan stars to help the Serie A club repay their alleged debt.
According to reports from Italy, Inter have missed a payment for Romelu Lukaku, which has triggered a clause which puts the Serie A giants in debt of 50 million euros for Manchester United.
Inter signed Lukaku for €80m in 2019 and agreed to pay the huge fee in installments.
As a result, Inter have reportedly recently missed a payment, meaning they now owe Man United £43million.
The obvious solution would be for Inter to pay the amount owed to the Red Devils, but as mentioned above, the Italian club have no money to spend at the moment.
It is claimed that they even had to delay part of a payment for real Madrid for Achraf Hakimi, things got so bad.
Another solution is to sell players to help pay the debt, and Manchester United have their eye on two individuals.
The first is 26-year-old defender Milan Skriniar, who would solve the Red Devils’ centre-back problem in the blink of an eye.
United are in the hunt for a new defender to partner Harry Maguire next season, but have been quoted between £60m and £70m for Jules Kounde and Raphael Varane respectively. Skriniar may be available for much less.
The other player who caught Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s eye is Lautaro Martinez.
The Red Devils lack a quality striker and Edinson Cavani is yet to agree to another year at Old Trafford.
Martinez is on the radar of every top club in Europe but Inter’s alleged debt to United could just give the Red Devils the upper hand.
United would likely have to pay an additional fee to sign the forward deal, but the amount leaving Old Trafford’s bank account would be significantly lower due to the debt.
