Manchester United eyes shock replacement for Lukaku amid Inter Milan links

June 25, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The Belgian striker seems to be living his final days at Old Trafford due to Antonio Conte's interest in his services.

Manchester United is getting ready for life after Romelu Lukaku, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already named the man he wants to sign to take over as the team's No. 9.

According to an article by The Mirror, the Norwegian boss has already been handed a transfer budget for this offseason -which does not include transfers away from the club-, and in that fashion, Solskjaer has named a rather feasible target, which is also on Barcelona and PSG's radar.

That target is none other than Sevilla's Wissam Ben Yedder, who is seen as quite a bargain, considering his goalscoring skills. Ben Yedder has scored 38 goals in 91 apps for Sevilla, which make him an interesting target for any of the teams mentioned above.

What seems to make Manchester United's bid more interesting to the player is that the Red Devils are ready to make Ben Yedder their first option at No.9, something that would not happen with Barcelona or PSG. Los Blaugranas are looking for a suitable replacement for Luis Suárez, and PSG seems to have an overbooking in that spot, with Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappé being the preferred options.

The only thing left for Ben Yedder to sign for the Red Devils is Lukaku's transfer. The Belgian footballer is keen on leaving the club this summer, but Inter's offer is not satisfying Manchester United's demands. While an agreement is closer now than before, the Belgian holds the key for any other moves up front, and Ben Yedder is the first name on Solskjaer's shopping cart to fill that void.
