Manchester United could slightly profit if Romelu Lukaku completes a return to Chelsea this summer, according to reports. The Blues are heavily pursuing Lukaku after being priced out of a move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

Lukaku completed a £74million move to Inter Milan on a five-year deal in 2019, just two years after joining United from Everton.

Since arriving in Italy, the 28-year-old has thrived and helped Inter dethrone Juventus and become Serie A champions last season.

He has scored 64 goals and registered 17 assists in 95 appearances, prompting links with a blockbuster move away.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea are preparing a new bid worth around £106.6m (€125m) for Lukaku.

Inter rejected their opening offer of £85.3m (€100m) plus Marcos Alonso last week.

The Blues are also offering Lukaku a long-term contract worth £10.2m (€12m) per year.

If Inter find Chelsea’s next bid reasonable and Lukaku is open to a return, United could be set for a small pay day.

The Telegraph report that United will be owed a small windfall for the transfer due to a sell-on clause added into his Inter contract.

If Lukaku re-joins Chelsea, the Red Devils should receive around £4.3m (€5m) of the fee.

The clause entitles United to four or five per cent of any future sale fee, meaning if a £106.6m (€125m) deal is struck, £4.3m (€5m) will go to Old Trafford.

It’s a little contribution, but a potential contribution nonetheless as the club eyes more reinforcements this summer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly still wants to add a central midfielder and right-back to his squad this month.

However, United are said to be relying on sales before making any other moves as they near a third deal of the summer in the form of Raphael Varane.

£4.3m made from Lukaku’s return to Chelsea could add to fees received for the likes of Axel Tuanzebe, Diogo Dalot and Andreas Pereira.

Soon enough, United may be able to afford a third marquee name after Jadon Sancho and Varane.

Or, it may go towards the club’s continued interest in Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier.
