Man Utd Opinion: Why shouldn’t Man Utd hold on to Lukaku?
With the transfer window nearing its end, Manchester United are looking to put final touches to their squad, following their three promising acquisitions in Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James and Harry Maguire.
On the receiving end, Red Devils’ forward Romelu Lukaku has been linked with a summer exit. A report from The Guardian has claimed that the Old Trafford outfit has agreed on a move with Serie A outfit Inter Milan.
The 26-year-old has been long-linked with a summer exit and it is high time for the club to bid adieu to him.
While Lukaku’s possible exit is looming, United shouldn’t regret the transfer anymore and here is why.
Why Lukaku can no longer be a viable addition for United
After making his switch from Everton to Old Trafford in 2017, Lukaku turned out to be a bargain for the Reds Devils in his first-ever season. Under the guidance of then-manager Jose Mourinho, the former Anderlecht man racked up a total of 27 goals and 9 assists in all competitions, helping the Red Devils finish second in the Premier League.
However, Lukaku witnessed a significant drop in his scoring tally the following season mainly due to rustiness resulted from frequent injuries.
Meanwhile, United have got two precious centre-forwards namely Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.
The 17-year-old prodigy enjoyed a fantastic season with the U18 and the reserves side, mustering a total of 26 goals and 8 assists in all competitions.
The English prospect also caught the wider attention in the pre-season friendlies, scoring a goal in three appearances.

Given this, Lukaku’s transfer won’t have a lot of consequences since United carry enough options to fill his void.
Solskjaer’s current attacking line-up is awash with youngsters. They have shown enough promises even with limited opportunities, which leaves Lukaku no more a viable option for the Red Devils.
