Lukaku is in demand: ‘City saw Lukaku as the ideal successor to Aguero’


Romelu Lukaku is also unstoppable in his second season at Inter Milan. It could have looked different, however, as English media report that Manchester City was interested in the services of the Red Devil last summer.

Nine goals in nine games, Lukaku is back on track at Inter Milan. The excellent performances will sting extra hard at Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City. According to The Telegraph the English top club had thrown a line to bring Lukaku back to Manchester last summer.

However, Inter saw nothing in a sale of its top striker, the price tag of Lukaku was therefore so high that even City’s oil dollars were not enough. City had gotten the message and dropped the Lukaku option. However, the question is whether the interest has finally died, City is still looking for a successor for the aging Sergio Aguero. It would certainly be a sensitive transfer, Lukaku previously defended the colors of rival United.
