Lukaku’s Agent Reveals Guardiola Tried To Sign Striker For Man City

Romelu Lukaku’s agent, Federico Pastorello, has claimed Manchester City tried to sign the Chelsea striker in 2020.

Lukaku completed a £98 million move to Chelsea from Inter Milan in the summer after two impressive years at San Siro.

However, the Belgian might have been playing for Pep Guardiola in England, with Pastorello claiming City made a move for his client at the end of the 2020/2021 campaign.

However, a deal didn’t happen, because of logistical issues brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I think I can say without disappointing anybody that Manchester City came in the year before.

“During the pandemic, it was very complicated because of trying to fly to places to meet people. It started very concrete and very serious, but eventually, they changed their idea or they were not ready to make it happen.

“Honestly, it was very difficult after the first year – it was almost impossible. He hadn’t won the league with Inter and he wanted to do that, and it would have been really impossible. Then they [City] focused on Harry Kane this summer,” Pastorello told The Telegraph.
