Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has once again decided to leave a prized asset on the sidelines, with a rumoured move to Italy still on the cards
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not included Romelu Lukaku in his latest squad for a clash with Kristiansund on Tuesday, amid ongoing speculation linking him with a move to Inter.
The Belgian striker has not seen a single minute of action during the Red Devils pre-season campaign, missing wins against Perth Glory, Leeds, Inter and Tottenham.
