Man Utd Boss Solskjaer On Inter Target Lukaku: “Hopefully He’ll Be Available Soon”

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer today insisted he hoped Romelu Lukaku would be available for selection soon, as rumours about a move to Inter intensify.

Lukaku was left out of United’s squad for Wednesday’s preseason friendly against Leeds in Australia, with the Norwegian telling the club’s in-house TV channel he was ‘not ready’ to play.

However, Sky Sports News later reported the striker’s omission was the start of a process which will take Lukaku to the Nerazzurri.

“Of course it’s not ideal when you miss training sessions,” Solskjaer told reporters after United’s 4-0 win.

“Then he missed a game again today, so he’s missed two chances to play 45 minutes. At this stage it’s important that we get everyone fit, so hopefully he’ll be available soon.”

Mason Greenwood replaced Lukaku up front in Perth and Solskjaer appeared to suggest this was not a temporary move, talking up the 18-year-old’s chances of starting against Chelsea in their first Premier League fixture.

“There’s a good possibility he will start if he keeps playing like this,” Solskjaer added.

“It’s difficult to keep players out of the side when they conduct themselves like him.”

Inter face United in Singapore on Saturday and that match will provide a clearer indication of where Lukaku’s future lies.
