PSG battle Man City in the race to land Romelu Lukaku this summer

Manchester City will reportedly face competition from Paris Saint-Germain in their bid to land Romelu Lukaku in the summer.

City are looking to revamp their forward line with talisman Sergio Aguero set to leave this summer after 10 years at the Etihad Stadium, and Inter Milan’s prolific striker Lukaku has emerged as a genuine target.

The Belgian striker has been in sensational form since leaving City’s rivals United to join Inter in 2019, and has returned a remarkable 54 goals in 78 games for the Serie A club.

That form has drawn serious interest from Pep Guardiola but Calciomercato have claimed that PSG have joined City in the race for his signature.

PSG are too on the hunt for a new forward after trailing Erling Haaland last year and appear to be the frontrunners to sign Lionel Messi, who is out of contract at Barcelona in the summer and is also on City’s radar.

Despite being committed to bring Messi to Paris, the French champions are also considering a summer move for Lukaku as they look to create a dream attacking force alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
