Manchester United have reportedly triggered a clause placing Inter Milan in €50million of debt to them over their move for Romelu Lukaku.
The Serie A club splashed the cash when they agreed a deal worth a reported fee of €80m to sign Lukaku from the Red Devils in 2019.
But Corriere dello Sport have now claimed that the deal included a clause that meant if Inter failed to meet any deadlines for set payments, they would immediately become a ‘debtor of United’ for the full remaining amount.
They now allege that a deadline has been missed for a payment related to bonuses with the Italian club facing financial issues after the coronavirus pandemic.
As a result, the agreed clause has been triggered creating a €50m (£43m) debt from Inter towards Manchester United.
