Manchester United have identified Sebastien Haller as a possible replacement for Romelu Lukaku if he leaves the club this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Inter Milan have targeted Lukaku but are awaiting to see whether they can afford the £80million price-tag that United have placed on the Belgian number nine.

If their asking price is met, the Red Devils would then reinvest the new-found funds into bringing in a striker to Old Trafford

After an impressive season in all competitions, it’s claimed Eintracht Frankfurt’s Haller is the desired centre-forward to head United’s attack next season.

Romelu Lukaku has been tipped to leave Old Trafford this summer.

Fifteen goals and nine assists in 29 league appearances helped the German club qualify for next season’s Europa League qualifiers, a competition that they flourished in last season and were knocked out in the semi-finals by Chelsea on penalties.

The Frenchman is an almighty force in the air and has great technique and composure with the ball at his feet, shown by his 100% success ratio from penalties last season.

Frankfurt will be reluctant to let Haller depart, especially after losing fellow striker Luka Jovic to Real Madrid for £64million.

The 24-year-old is contracted to be at the Commerzbank-Arena until 2021 but if United table a substantial offer for the free-scoring striker then we could see the former FC Utrecht player leave Germany sooner than expected.
