The Portuguese lured Everton striker Lukaku to the Old Trafford for £75 million (R1.3bn), despite rumours linking him with a return to Chelsea.
The 24-year-old was allegedly Conte’s preferred target to replace Diego Costa, whom he told he can leave Stamford Bridge, but opted to join United.
The Red Devils will now reportedly turn their attention to AS Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan as their attempts to sign Eric Dier from Tottenham Hotspur seem to be rebuffed by Spurs.
The 29-year-old has previously been linked with Chelsea and Conte knows him from his time in Italy. Nainggolan would allegedly cost £40 million (R694m) and could cause Chelsea and United to go head-to-head in another transfer tussle, according to DailyMail.
United, though, are allegedly also still hopeful to complete a move for Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic, while the Blues are reportedly close to securing the services of AS Monaco’s Tiemoue Bakayoko.
