Manchester United News: 'It was time now' for Lukaku to go says Solskjaer ahead of new EPL season
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was determined that his side will be better off without Romelu Lukaku as he looked ahead to facing Frank Lampard's Chelsea in their season opener at Old Trafford on Sunday .
"It was time now for Rom (Romelu Lukaku) to go because I think we got a good deal, he's happy, so I think both parties ended that deal as it should be," said the Norwegian.
Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James all look impressive acquisitions, but Ander Herrera, Antonio Valencia and Lukaku have left on the back of Marouane Fellaini's January departure.
"I'm very confident that we'll get goals from (Anthony) Martial, (Marcus) Rashford, (Daniel) James will come in and create ... We do have a different attacking set-up this season," added Solskjaer when asked about his goal scoring options this season.
