Fans haven’t been fully impressed with the Red Devils’ summer business, but the Norwegian is happy with the players at his disposal
Manchester united manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained the club’s decision not to buy a replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who joined Inter in an €80m (£74m/$90m) transfer on Thursday, stating that he feels the Belgian’s goals will be replaced by other attackers in the team.
Lukaku was signed under Solskjaer’s predecessor, Jose Mourinho, and while he did score 28 goals in 66 Premier League matches for the Red Devils, he was often accused of failing to show up against stronger teams.
Indeed, Marcus Rashford was the preferred starting option towards the end of the 2018-19 season, playing a part in Lukaku’s decision to take on a new challenge under Antonio Conte’s Nerazzurri in Serie A.
