Barcelona reportedly blocked Ronald Koeman's attempts to bring Romelu Lukaku to the club this summer.
Lukaku joined Inter Milan from Manchester United last August and enjoyed an impressive 2019-20 campaign for the Italian giants, scoring 34 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Koeman informed the Barca board that he wanted to sign the Belgium international, who he managed at Everton, as a replacement for Luis Suarez.
However, the report claims that the Catalan giants blocked the proposal due to the financial impact of the coronavirus outbreak, which means that the club cannot afford to sign the 27-year-old this summer.
Lukaku has a contract at San Siro until June 2024, meaning that Inter are in an extremely strong position when it comes to any potential negotiations for the powerful centre-forward.
