Manchester United are expected to make a splash in the upcoming summer transfer window. Their defeat at the hands of Villarreal in the Europa League final meant that the club have now gone four seasons without a trophy and that is something that they need to change as quickly as possible.

Thus, the Red Devils could sign quite a few players in the summer. It will be tough to do that though in the current financial climate.

Chelsea could hand the club a summer cash boost with The Blues being heavily linked with a move for Romelu Lukaku. Manchester City are also a club who appear to be interested in him after the departure of club legend Sergio Aguero. As reported by Manchester Evening News, Manchester United had negotiated a sell-on clause as part of his €80 million move to Inter Milan.

The Belgian striker has been absolutely superb ever since leaving Old Trafford. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 64 goals and provided 16 assists in 95 appearances for Inter Milan.

Manchester United could be handed a summer cash boost by either Chelsea or Manchester City

Both Chelsea and Manchester City were in the final of the UEFA Champions League this season. But both of them could be looking for a goalscorer this summer, with a move for Lukaku looking like a possibility.

While Inter Milan won the Serie A title this season, Antonio Conte has left the club since then and they are expected to let players leave this summer in order to balance the books.

While it is not known what percentage the sell-on clause is, it is worth pointing out that Manchester United themselves had to pay a £5 million sell-on fee to Everton when Lukaku joined Inter Milan.

The arrival of Lukaku would make either of these clubs much stronger than they already are. And that is saying something considering one of them won the Premier League and League Cup double last year while the other won the Champions League. Thus, it looks we are headed for one of the most competitive Premier League seasons in recent memory.
