Manchester United are reportedly assessing the possibility of offloading Romelu Lukaku at the end of the season after the Belgian striker failed to impress Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Brought in from Everton back in 2017 for a fee in excess of £90 million including add-ons, the 25-year-old has enjoyed a purple patch in his first season at Old Trafford.
After netting 27 goals and adding six assists in his maiden season for the Red Devils, former Chelsea man has struggled to live up to expectations, scoring just 15 goals in 42 top-flight outings for United this term.

Lukaku’s barren run has seen him drawing a blank in ten of his previous 12 Premier League appearances, which is why Solskjaer prefers Marcus Rashford to spearhead his team’s offense.
However, Lukaku’s whopping £250,000-a-week wages could be a stumbling block in United’s efforts to get rid of their out-of-favor star considering a very few clubs can afford to pay his salary.
As reported by Daily Mail, Serie A giants, Juventus and AC Milan, could be viable candidates for the striker’s signature should Antonio Conte takes charge of either team.
