– Romelu Lukaku looks set to seal a summer move to Inter Milan

– The Man United forward has in the past made public his desire to play in the Serie A

– He has since dropped a transfer hint with an Antonio Conte admission

Manchester United could lose Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan this summer after the star forward dropping a huge hint on his imminent departure.

Lukaku is a transfer target for Antonio Conte at Inter and the Belgian has hinted a possible move could be on the cards.

Speaking after his brace for Belgium against Scotland in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, the former Everton striker was full of praise for the Italian tactician.

“Good that Conte went to Inter, for me, he is the best coach in the world,” SunSport quoted Lukaku.

“As for my future, I have already made a decision that I still cannot communicate publicly out of respect for Manchester United with whom I have a contract,” he added.

Lukaku further acknowledged his love for Italian football and his undying desire to play in the Serie A.

“I am a big Serie A fan, those close to me know that I have always wanted to play in the English league and in the Italian one, I love Italy,” he said.

Conte was desperate to sign Lukaku while he was at Chelsea two years ago, but the former Everton striker opted to seal a move to Man United.

He had an excellent first season at Old Trafford, netting 27 goals for the Manchester outfit.

He has however struggled in his second, scoring just 15 goals in as many appearances for the Red Devils.

Italian giants AC Milan and Inter Milan are set to face off in a video game derby as the football-mad country remains in lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Milan’s Portuguese striker Rafael Leao will take on Inter’s Sebastiano Esposito on Saturday at 1:30 pm (1130 GMT) on eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer (PES).

The Milan eDerby will be available live on DAZN, one of two broadcasters of Serie A in Italy, and on both Inter and AC Milan’s official channels.

“Being a derby there is always the desire to win. But the main objective is to be close to our fans in this complicated time,” said Leao.

It will be possible during the game to donate funds to the Milan Foundation for the fight against COVID-19, with the Lombardy region at the epicentre of the outbreak in Italy.

Italian football has been on hold since March 9, as a result of the virus which has killed over 18,000 people in the country.

Fernandes determined to become a Man United legend

Published

LON DON, United Kingdom, Apr 10 – Manchester United midfield ace Bruno Fernandes has named eight club legends and vowed to be counted among them one day.

The Portuguese playmaker has made an impressive start to his United career, providing three goals and four assists for his new side.

And Fernandes is keen to become a club legend, like the idols he watched growing up as a Red Devils fan.

“I have already said this a lot of times but it was a dream come true,” Fernandes said. “For me, ever since I was a kid, it was a dream playing for Manchester United.

“Manchester United was and is one of the biggest clubs in the world. You look in the past and when I’m younger, you look at the players who played for Manchester United.

“You see the biggest stars in the world. You see the best players in the world. You have players from everywhere and also, we talked a lot and I told you about Cristiano.

“I looked at Manchester with more interest when Cristiano was here, because it’s normal when you have Portuguese players in some teams, you look at them more than other teams.”

“But at that moment, I started to look at Manchester in a different way because you see Cristiano but then you also see the team and you have Paul Scholes, you have [Wayne] Rooney, you have [Ryan] Giggs and you have Roy Keane, [Eric] Cantona before.

“You have a lot of players… I don’t know… [Ruud] van Nistelrooy… I can stay here for hours saying all the names of players for Manchester United.

“Also Nani, who’s played with me. You have big stars playing here. Joining Manchester United was so easy because since I was a kid, it was a dream, so for me, doing this step, a big step to the Premier League and Manchester United was perfect.”

Rugby Australia CEO takes bigger pay cut

Published

Loading...

SYDNEY, Australia, Apr 10 – Rugby Australia chief executive Raelene Castle is set to take a further cut to her salary during the coronavirus pandemic.

Castle has decided to increase her 50 per cent pay cut to 65 per cent which matches the number that the national body is believed to be requesting from its playing group.

Castle last week announced she would be taking a 50 per cent pay cut and her executive team have taken 30 per cent pay cuts for the next three months.

Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald on Thursday night, Castle said she decided to reduce her salary by an extra 15 per cent.

“We’ve been head down concentrating on trying to find a plan that protects the long term viability of the game, looking under every rock to try to save every penny we can to make sure the game is on a stable footing for the long term,” she said.

“Off the back of that I’ve decided to take an additional 15 per cent that will take my pay cut to 65 per cent.

“Overnight 80 per cent of the game’s revenue was turned off and, at the time, taking a 50 per cent pay cut was the best thing I felt I could do to lead in this unprecedented situation. After another few weeks of work, the right number is 65 per cent.

“It’s the right thing to do. I have made that decision and recommended it to the board because we’re facing really tough times and have to make these calls.

“Like everyone through the game that’s had to stand down and make difficult decisions, I’m no different.”
