Romelu Lukaku set to stay at Man Utd; no bid tabled for Belgian striker

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku is likely to stay at Old Trafford next season, according to the BBC.

Lukaku has been heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan all summer, with new boss Antonio Conte said to have identified the Belgian as his prime transfer target.

However, the BBC report that no bid has yet been made for Lukaku, who still has three years left on his current deal at the club.

Contrary to some reports, the Reds have not set an asking price for the striker and would want profit on the £75m fee they signed him for from Everton.

Many United fans had been preparing for Lukaku’s exit this summer; he has openly expressed it would be a dream to play in Serie A and struggled to start games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last season.

If Lukaku does stay next year, he will have to fight Marcus Rashford for a place up front, who was Solskjaer’s preferred option last campaign.

Meanwhile, the 26-year-old was back in training this morning in Australia after missing out on yesterday’s open session to carry out alternate gym work.
