Romelu Lukaku TEAMtalk

Romelu Lukaku has offered a huge hint that his his time at Manchester United is coming to an end.

The United no. 9 lost his place to Marcus Rashford last season after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge and he has since been linked with a move away from the club.

The Belgium striker is understood to be a target for the former Chelsea boss and recent reports claim Inter have seen a player-plus-cash offer for Lukaku rejected by Manchester United.

Gazzetta dello Sport claim the Serie A side were prepared to send Ivan Perisic to Old Trafford as a makeweight in a deal for Lukaku, but United have turned down the deal.

It’s understood United want around £70million for Lukaku, who rarely featured under Solskjaer last season.

Lukaku has remained tight-lipped about his future until now, but after Belgium’s 3-0 win over Scotland, he said: “I have a contract with Manchester United. 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.”

Lukaku scored twice as Belgium eased past Scotland in a Euro 2020 qualifier in Brussels and afterwards his national coach Roberto Martinez revealed his concern for the unhappy forward.

“I just feel sometimes a bit sad when I don’t see Rom enjoying his football,” Martinez said. “When he enjoys his football he’s a lethal goalscorer.”
