The future of Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United remains firmly up in the air, with the Belgian striker rested in the Red Devils’ first pre-season outing against Perth Glory on Saturday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side strolled to a 2-0 win in Australia with Lukaku not included in the match-day squad due to a minor injury.
The 26-year-old’s absence comes in the wake of Inter beginning negotiations with United over a possible transfer a few days ago.
Asked whether Lukaku would be a Red Devils player next season, Solskjaer kept his cards close to his chest.
“Let’s see when the season starts,” Solskjaer said.
“We’ve not had any bids that we’re considering. All my conversations with the players I will keep confidential. That’s between us – that’s my privilege.
“There’s been so much speculation but yes he should be fit for Wednesday. He trained with the team yesterday but he wasn’t useful today.”
