Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Solskjaer to hold talks with Lukaku over Man United future

Lukaku’s future up in the air

According to the Evening Standard, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to hold talks with Romelu Lukaku over his Manchester United future.

Lukaku was Man United’s main striker under Jose Mourinho. But when OGS first took the reins at Old Trafford, Lukaku often found himself on the bench with Marcus Rashford in his place.

The Belgian has been featuring a lot more in recent weeks for United, though.

However, Lukaku has now played eight games across all competitions without finding the back of the net. This is said to be a concern for Solskjaer.

The report from the Standard also states that Lukaku’s future at United isn’t under too much of an immediate threat, with the striker likely to be part of Solskjaer’s plans next season.

But Manchester United are reportedly willing to listen to offers for Lukaku. They would, though, want to recoup the £75 million they signed him for back in 2017 in any sale.

Cardiff vs Man United

Lukaku missed Man United’s last game versus Huddersfield due to injury. They drew 1-1 and, as a result, missed out on a Champions League place.

The forward is also a doubt for United’s final game of the season vs Cardiff.

United youngster Mason Greenwood is being touted by the Manchester Evening News to make his full debut vs Cardiff in place of Lukaku.

While the Red Devils have been confined to Europa League football for next season, they could still finish 5th in the Premier League table with a win versus Cardiff on Sunday, so long as Arsenal fail to beat Burnley.
