Man Utd transfer news LIVE: Maguire, Lukaku and Wan-Bissaka latest - Thursday's targets, rumours and gossipMan Utd transfer news LIVE: Maguire, Lukaku and Wan-Bissaka latest - Thursday's targets, rumours and gossip
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plans to build his attack around Marcus Rashford, with Lukaku set to be reduced to a back-up role.
United have not transfer-listed the Belgium international – but will accept a bid of £80million for the second-most expensive player in their history.
Antonio Conte wants to take Lukaku to Inter Milan after failing in a bid to sign him for Chelsea in 2017.
The 26-year-old opted for a £75m move to United from Everton instead – with the price potentially rising to £90m.
Old Trafford’s hierarchy have to decide whether to cash in now – or risk seeing his value plummet after a season on the sidelines.
They believe they can still demand top money for the striker this summer – and he only enhanced his reputation with two goals in Belgium’s 3-0 win against Scotland on Tuesday night.
Lukaku said afterwards: “I’ll speak with my club and my agent Federico Pastorello to make the best decision.
“I am going to enjoy my holidays with my family now. I know what I’ll do, but won’t say it. We’ll see. Do I expect a busy summer? Yes.
“I’ve had a difficult season at club level. I lost my place and haven’t played much.
“But that is a phase in my career and it will help me for the next step.”
Solskjaer wants to make his attack more mobile, with Rashford leading a front three, which will also include Anthony Martial and new signing Daniel James.
It’s believed United have already watched potential replacements for Lukaku, including Lyon’s Moussa Dembele.
