Manchester United have told Romelu Lukaku he is free to leave the club.

After arriving at Old Trafford from Everton in the summer of 2017, Lukaku impressed heavily during his first season at the Mancunian outfit.

However, things went downhill for the striker after Jose Mourinho’s departure, and he lost his spot as the team’s first-choice striker under the Portuguese gaffer’s successor, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian tactician is said to be happy to let Lukaku stay on and compete for the position, but the club is also prepared to let him leave in search of guaranteed first-team action.


Man Utd Want Inter Defender Milan Skriniar In Exchange Of Romelu Lukaku

Lukaku has attracted heavy interest from the Serie A, with Inter said to be the frontrunners in the race to secure his services.

Now, according to The Sun, the Red Devils have told the Belgian international that he is free to depart from the Theatre of Dreams, provided Inter meet his £75 million valuation.

Reports from Italy that emerged earlier this week suggested that the 26-year-old forward has already met with the Italian outfit, and is even ready to take a pay-cut in order to seal this transfer.

Further, with Antonio Conte expected to take over the managerial hot-seat at the San Siro, Manchester United are increasingly confident of pulling this sale off, and recouping the amount they coughed up for Lukaku two summers ago.
