Romelu Lukaku future to be decided next week

Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku has said that his future at Manchester United will be decided next week with the player have been heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan.

United held formal discussions with Inter Milan over the 26-year-old Belgium striker in London on Thursday, although it's understood that no formal offer has been made.

Future

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, when asked about Lukaku’s future, said: “Let's see when the season starts. We've not had any bids we're considering. All my conversations (with the players) I will keep confidential. That's my privilege and I can promise them that I won't tell them our discussions.

“There's been so much speculation but, yes, he should be fit for Wednesday and he trained with the team yesterday. But it wasn't useful today to risk him.”

United want to recoup the £90million they agreed to pay for Lukaku when he arrived from Everton two years ago, while Inter is looking at a two-year loan worth £9m with a view to a permanent £54m move.

The former Chelsea striker missed the game with what was described as a 'little niggle' but is expected to play in the second match against Leeds United in Perth on Wednesday.
