Manchester United could land Lautaro Martinez due to Inter missing Romelu Lukaku payment

The headline news in the football world on Wednesday surrounds Manchester United and Inter Milan.

Inter sign Lukaku

The latter has taken several players off Manchester United’s hands in recent years, with all of Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Ashley Young making the move to the San Siro.

Lukaku was, obviously, the costliest addition for the Nerazzurri, setting them back a club-record €80m.

And despite joining the Serie A outfit nearly 18 months ago, Inter still seemingly owe Man United money.

Inter’s owners, Jiangsu Suning, are having some financial troubles at present, which recently caused them to cease operations at another of their clubs, Jiangsu FC.

Inter owe Man United €50m

Now, it looks as though Suning’s financial woes could potentially cost Inter Milan a star player.

As per Sport Witness, citing Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, when United sold Lukaku to Inter, the Red Devils included a clause in the contract that if Antonio Conte’s side failed to meet any of the deadlines set for payments, then Inter ‘immediately become a debtor of United’ for the full remaining fee.

And now, it appears Inter, who also recently missed a payment to Real Madrid for Achraf Hakimi, have done so for Lukaku.

It is believed that a deadline has been skipped for a payment related to bonuses. This is said to have triggered the aforementioned clause, leaving Inter Milan €50m in debt to Man United.

With Inter clearly struggling so much financially, they probably do not have €50m lying around to pay United.

So, the Manchester powerhouse have begun to propose various solutions to help pay off the debt, one of which includes Inter sending one of Lautaro Martinez or Milan Skriniar to Old Trafford:
