It’s almost as if selling clubs are aware that Manchester United is wealthy, foolish, and desperate, with RB Leipzig and Barcelona both taking advantage of the Red Devils. But first, some bad news for one of the biggest movers from last summer…
INTERNAL INTEREST IN LUKAKU IS DECREASING.
According to a rumor published on Monday, Romelu Lukaku ‘doesn’t want any other solution but Inter’ and will ‘go down on his knees’ to achieve a return to the San Siro. Today, it appears that he will have to.
Inter’s interest in re-signing the striker, according to HLN in Belgium, may be waning. A deal was always going to be difficult since Chelsea will want the finest terms available, whether it’s a loan or a permanent move.
Inter appears to have realized that they may not be able to afford to bring Lukaku back. While he’s on his knees, the £97.5 million striker could beg that Chelsea will have mercy on him and absorb a massive financial hit simply to get him out from under Thomas Tuchel’s feet.
RICHARLISON WISHES TO MOVE TO LONDON
Richarlison is another striker who has specific ideas for where he will play next season.
According to UOL, the Brazilian wants to join Chelsea or Tottenham in London. Spurs, by coincidence, are eager to make it happen.
According to the Telegraph, Antonio Conte is ready to lure Richarlison to London, with Everton demanding £50 million for their star striker.

LEIPZIG MAKES NKUNKU TOO EXPENSIVE FOR THE UNITED STATES
If RB Leipzig intends to allow Christopher Nkunku leave, they want double that…
The France international’s price has risen sharply this year during the back end of a season in which Nkunku has proved himself to be a top-class forward while earning himself the Bundesliga Player of the Year award.
According to the Independent, Leipzig has set a £100 million price tag on the 24-year-old, thereby putting an end to Manchester United’s interest for the time being. Arsenal and PSG, on the other hand, may not be put off.
THE RED DEVILS MAY LEAVE DE JONG.
‘Have you heard anything about Frenkie De Jong?’ you inquire…
Not at all. United and Barcelona are still in talks over the Holland international, according to the Manchester Evening News, but their valuations of the midfielder are still far apart.
Reports in Spain suggest Barca could be asking for £85million while United remain adamant they won’t overpay for De Jong. If Barca don’t budge soon, then the Red Devils are set to move on to other targets, one of them being Kalvin Phillips. Manchester City, on the other hand, is focusing its attention on the Leeds United midfielder.
