In an interview with Sky Sports after arriving back in Milan on Thursday, Ausilio confrimed that he has held talks with United over the transfer of Lukaku, "We had a meeting with Man United for Lukaku. It has been an official approach between two important clubs. Let’s see. Conte wants every player we’re trying to sign."
Lukaku has scored 42 goals in 96 games for United since arriving from Everton in 2017 and managed to find the net 15 times in 45 appearances last season.
