New Inter Milan boss, Antonio Conte, is angry after the club started weighing up cheaper alternatives to Romelu Lukaku, according to The Sun.
Lukaku has been linked with a move to the Italian giants for much of the summer and it appeared Inter were inching closer to landing him for a fee around £75million.
But Inter have reportedly “hit a wall” with United’s demands over the transfer and have turned their attention towards Edinson Cavani.
Cavani’s contract at Paris Saint-Germain expires next summer and following previous spells at Napoli and Palermo, the Uruguay striker is a proven goal scorer in Serie A.
A London meeting between Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and Inter chief Piero Ausilio failed to produce an agreement over a fee for Lukaku.
Inter are looking at a two-year loan worth £9m with a view to a permanent £54m move, but United want to recoup most of the £90m fee they paid Everton for the striker two years ago.
