Romelu Lukaku's proposed move to Inter is "difficult" but the Manchester United striker's agent insisted "nothing is impossible."

Lukaku looks set to leave United after acknowledging a desire to play in Serie A and hinting his future could be away from Old Trafford. The 26-year-old Belgium striker — who fell out of favour during the second half of the 2018-19 Premier League season as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer preferred Marcus Rashford — has been tipped to join Antonio Conte's Inter.

Asked about Lukaku as Inter reportedly tries to strike a deal with United amid the club's GBP 75 million valuation, Federico Pastorello told FC Inter News: "Lukaku is a dream, a difficult one to make happen as such, but I believe nothing is impossible.

"He's publicly expressed his plans and desires. We'll see what happens."

Pastorello, who has been in Milan to also discuss his other clients, added: "We talked about [Inter youth player Edoardo] Vergani because his is a more urgent situation. In the next few days, we’ll talk about the rest."

Lukaku — contracted to the Red Devils until 2022 with the option of a further year after arriving from Everton in 2017 — scored 12 Premier League goals as United finishes sixth in 2018-19, missing out on Champions League qualification.

He scored 15 goals across all competitions for United, which lost to Barcelona in the Champions League quarterfinals.
