Romelu Lukaku spotted in Anderlecht shirt as links to Italy remain

Manchester United’s most unwanted star at the moment Romelu Lukaku has been spotted in an Anderlecht shirt as reports continue to swirl around his future.

While interest in his signature from Inter Milan and Juventus hasn’t disappeared it has quietened down following a failure to meet United’s demands.

Inter are believed to be gearing up to submit a new bid while Juventus are still trying to work their way around the failed Paulo Dybala and Lukaku swap deal.

Just how either club will afford the prolific Belgian remains to be seen as the Red Devils have remained firm on their asking price so far.

Given how Premier League clubs can still sell after the English window shuts, it will interesting to see whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will allow Lukaku to leave without signing a replacement.

Some fans feel confident in Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and even Alexis Sanchez’s ability to step up in Lukaku’s absence to make up for his goals.

However, others are a little more skeptical and feel a direct replacement will be needed until the aforementioned can prove themselves to be adequate goalscorers as strikers.

Selling Lukaku without signing a replacement would mean Manchester United would have recouped much of the finances they spent in securing Harry Maguire.
