SINGAPORE – Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Romelu Lukaku was not fit to play against Inter Milan in Singapore on Saturday, as the Italian side reiterated their desire to lure the striker to Serie A.
Speaking to media on Friday ahead of the match at Singapore’s National Stadium in the International Champions Cup, Solskjaer said: “He is not fit, so he won’t be able to play.”
Asked if Lukaku would still be a United player at the start of the season, he added: “I don’t have any updates.”
Lukaku is yet to feature on the pre-season trip to Australia, Singapore and China after taking a knock in training earlier this week.
The Belgium international, who joined United two years ago, has been targeted by Inter Milan, but talks between the two clubs have stalled recently, according to British media reports.
