Lukaku is wanted by both Inter Milan and Juventus but United are yet to receive an acceptable bid.

Now that a deal has been agreed, Lukaku will travel to Italy and has a medical booked for Thursday in Milan.

The defender is the subject of interest from Everton, with Man United having rejected an offer.
