Manchester United’s striker Romelu Lukaku received another suitor from Seria A in recent days. According to multiple reports, including those from ESPN and Metro, Juventus entered the race for Lukaku and is ready to offer Paulo Dybala to Manchester as part of the deal.

Lukaku has been linked with Inter Milan in the recent weeks, but two clubs can’t agree on the price for the 26-year-old Belgium international. Man Utd is asking close to $100 million for the player, while Inter is currently offering $65 million.

Following a stall in Inter and United’s negotiations, Juventus saw an opportunity to swoop in and get included in Romelu Lukaku sweepstakes. The only issue with Juve’s proposal is that Dybala might not be open to joining a team that doesn’t play in Champions League next season. Also, Lukaku’s first choice remains Inter, as he wants to play for their new coach Antonio Conte.

Lukaku, who is currently recovering from an ankle injury, played in 32 matches in Premier League last season, scoring 12 goals in the process. He also added two goals in nine Champions League matches.
