Manchester United lead 3-0 against Leeds in Perth.
Goals from Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Phil Jones have made it a comfortable evening for the Reds at the Optus Stadium.
One player who has impressed fans in particular is 17-year-old starlet Mason Greenwood. The academy graduate showed great goal-scoring instinct to get in the box and finish new signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s low cross for the opener.
Greenwood is highly-rated by many United fans and some think he is already good enough to replace Romelu Lukaku in the first-team.
Lukaku’s future at Old Trafford is in huge doubt after he was once again left out of the squad for the second pre-season friendly of the tour.
The Belgian striker has been heavily linked with a move to Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan, and loads of Reds think manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already has a ready made replacement at the club:
So sell lukaku and put greenwood up top with rashford?

If we sell Lukaku and don’t sign a striker this window, this puts more pressure on Rashford and I’m sure he can take it. Plus Greenwood gets more chance with the first team and indefinitely improves. If that goals still lack, we get a decent striker in Jan.

United don’t need to sign a Lukaku replacement. Rashford, Martial, Greenwood is enough.

We’ve got enough in Rashford, Martial, Alexis and Greenwood to cover ST this season.
Get £70m for Lukaku and that basically pays for Maguire, then go get Fernandes and a CDM (Longstaff probs) and it’s a very decent window. That’s if we keep Pogba and De Gea, which is expected.

Absolutely. Greenwood, Rashford, Martial can rotate across the front 3 with James, Mata, Lingard, Chong good alternatives. I would let Lukaku go and wouldn't even bother with a replacement
