Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has remained coy when quizzed about the future of Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United this summer.

The Belgian striker’s situation at Old Trafford has been a source of speculation this summer after he fell down the pecking order at the club under Solskjaer in the second half of last season.

Inter Milan are thought to be keen on signing the 26-year-old striker this summer but Manchester United are said to be holding out for a big fee for the striker.

As things stand, Lukaku is currently continuing his pre-season preparations with the rest of the Manchester United squad and it remains to be seen what the future holds for the former Chelsea FC forward.

Now, Solskjaer has insisted that he is not sure about Lukaku’s future as the new season draws nearer.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Sky Sports, Solskjaer said when asked about Lukaku’s future: “Let’s see when the season starts. We have not had any bids that we are considering. You guys will know something next week.”

Lukaku was left out of Saturday’s pre-season clash Perth Glory after picking up a minor injury but Solskjaer expects him to be fit for Wednesday’s game against Leeds.

He continued: “He should be fit for Wednesday, He trained with the team yesterday but it was not useful today to risk him.”

Lukaku scored 12 goals in 32 Premier League games for Manchester United last season, as the Red Devils finished in sixth place in the table and without a trophy.
