According to British tabloid The Sun, Romelu Lukaku has been told by Manchester United that he is free to leave the club and look for other options this summer.

The Belgian, who joined United from Everton in a £75m deal in 2017, has endured a tough season in front of goal, incessantly inviting criticism for his lackadaisical performances.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is happy to see the striker fight for a place in the lineup but the club are against letting him stay. Lukaku has been linked with a £75m move to Italian giants Inter Milan and the club hierarchy are confident that a deal can be struck.

However, the Belgian's mammoth wages are proving to be a stumbling block in any attempt to strike a deal. Lukaku earns around £250,000 per week at Old Trafford, a sum Inter are not willing to match meaning he will have to take a pay-cut to join the Serie A giants.
