Manchester United will allow Romelu Lukaku to leave the club this summer according to reports in the media today.
With United still battling to secure a place in the top four, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already has his eyes on this summer’s transfer market, with the Norwegian preparing to make major changes to the playing personnel at his disposal.
The Manchester United manager has admitted that he wants to sign players with ‘personality, quality and longevity’ with reports suggesting that he wants to go back to the clubs tradition of signing some of the hottest young talents, with the likes of Jadon Sancho, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Aaron Wan-Bissaka being linked.
Not only will there be a number of players arriving at Old Trafford this summer, but there is likely to be plenty of departures too, with the likes of Ander Herrera, Matteo Darmian, Juan Mata, Marcos Rojo and Antonio Valencia all likely to be heading through the exit doors.
There has also been talk about potential departures for David de Gea, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, with the Belgian striker’s ambitions of playing in Italy being revealed by his agent.
Now, according to The Telegraph, United are ‘prepared to listen to offers’ for their number 9, who is reportedly attracting interest from Inter Milan, Bayern Munich and PSG.
A move to Inter Milan could be the most likely considering rumours linking former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte with taking over at the San Siro, with the Italian having been interested in signing the striker from Everton in 2017 before he opted for a move to Old Trafford.
However, with three years left on his deal, United would be keen to at least recoup their £75 million initial outlay, which combined with his £225,000-a-week wages would be the ‘biggest obstacle’ to any potential departure.
