Inter Milan are reportedly interested in Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek but cannot afford to sign the Netherlands international due to the cost of the potential deal.
The 24-year-old has only played 51 minutes of football for the Red Devils this season and was an unused substitute in Sunday's 2-1 win over West Ham United in the Premier League.
A recent report claimed that Inter were lining up an offer for the Dutchman, who was strongly linked with a move away from the 20-time English champions over the summer.
According to L'Interista, Inter are admirers of the midfielder, but the Serie A champions cannot afford to sign him due to their financial problems.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is believed to have blocked Van de Beek from leaving Old Trafford over the summer, with the Man United boss continuing to insist that the former Ajax youngster will be given chances to impress.
The midfielder, who made his first start of the 2021-22 campaign against Young Boys in the Champions League on September 14, still has four years left to run on his contract with Man United.
