I like Lukaku but he's United's - English

Romelu Lukaku may be set to stay at Manchester United

Romelu Lukaku may be set to stay at Manchester United

'He's one we have to keep at our place.

"The kid's only 17 and he's learning everyday training with these boys", Solskjaer said. "The first two months is vital for us".

He said: "You're not surprised when a player from Brazil that's played in Ukraine finds it a little bit hard in the beginning, but we know the talent is there". So we'll try to get 60 minutes or longer out of him. There will be ups and downs but he's enjoying his football'.

His fine finish consigned Antonio Conte to defeat in his first match in charge of Inter, which was played against the backdrop of transfer speculation surrounding Romelu Lukaku. It was confirmed on Saturday that United have rejected a £54m bid for the Belgium striker.

The Belgian striker is suffering from an ankle injury but his manager has concerns over the amount of training he has missed.

Lukaku has yet to feature for United in pre-season and that appears to be frustrating his manager. "Fred has been back over in Brazil and had his wedding and got married, so he's probably got loads of energy - and I'm sure he's keen to join in".

"The transfer delays have made life hard but we have to also sell some players as well as buying them". As a coach you adapt to the players available.

United performed well to see off the Serie A side but it was not all good news for the Red Devils, who lost Victor Lindelof to a seemingly minor muscle problem early in the second half.

In a tweet shared by Man United, two commentators cane be seen discussing the game prior to the start of the Man United vs Inter Milan friendly match when Dalot from comes from behind and photobombs them.

"I think that I have answered yesterday about Lukaku", the Inter head coach said. "He always gives absolutely everything and his delivery today ended up with a goal".

"The club was very clear to tell that he is out of Inter's project". "He's hard to go past and he was going forward as well so I'm very pleased with his performance and the team's performance".

Conte's frustration in failing to sign Lukaku is understood to be echoed by the player himself. It's not right to speak about the player in this moment. "He's probably finished with his running now so we'll have a chat with him now but I don't think he'll get effected".

"I consider him an important player for us to improve".

Nigeria's Victor Moses is another star the gaffer wants in his squad for the coming season - with the hopes of deploying the retired Super Eagles star in the wing back position.
