That’s according to football consultant Ian McGarry, who claims the Serie A outfit have a proposed a deal worth £63m that would see them pay £23m upfront and £40m in instalments.
Lukaku could be on his way out of Old Trafford this summer amid serious interest from Inter.
After joining the club at the end of May, former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has set his sights on bringing the Belgian to the San Siro.
Conte famously missed out on Lukaku in his time at Stamford Bridge, making a late bid for the player in the summer of 2017 before he decided to join United instead.
“Internazionale have proposed a deal worth £63m, but with a payment structure which so far Manchester United are unhappy with”
Now he is determined to make the 26-year-old his first marquee signing at Inter, but McGarry insists they are still some way off the Red Devils’ valuation of their star striker.
“We can tell you that Internazionale have proposed a deal worth £63m, but with a payment structure which so far Manchester United are unhappy with,” he said on The Transfer Window podcast.
“At the moment, Inter are willing to offer £23m upfront and make payments after that.
“But that still doesn’t meet what United’s valuation of the player is, which is £75m.
“Now, an intriguing part of this transfer is that Lukaku, as we all know, used to be represented by Mino Raiola, who it’s safe to say has an infamous name in the world of football agency.
“But he changed his agent on the basis he didn’t feel that Raiola was looking after his best interests in terms of his career.”
Since completing a £75m switch to United in 2017, Lukaku has produced a decent return of 42 goals in 96 appearances.
Yet the former Everton and Chelsea frontman has seemingly fallen out of favour under boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has often preferred to field Marcus Rashford as his lead striker.
However, despite interest from Inter, BBC Sport claim Lukaku is set to stay at Old Trafford this summer.
United are not prepared to accept anything lower than the £75m fee they paid Everton in 2017, and with Paul Pogba reportedly close to joining Real Madrid, the club would not allow the second most expensive player in their history to leave without making a profit.
Inter, whose current transfer record is the £44.5m they paid for Christian Vieri back in 1999, were only cleared of UEFA’s additional Financial Fair Play monitoring in May and are understood to be in a position where they must sell before forking out so much on a player.
