Manchester United

Solskjaer rules Lukaku out of Inter clash

19th July 2019, 11:15 by Bobbie Jackson

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku will miss Saturday’s pre-season friendly with Inter Milan due to injury.

United are due to face Inter in the International Champions Cup in Singapore this weekend, but the Belgium international will not be involved.

Asked at a press conference if Lukaku would be fit, and if he would play him against the Italian side considering the ongoing speculation, Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: "No, he's not fit, so he won't be available, so that answers the second one as well."

Inter are yet to meet United's asking price for the striker who cost them £75million from Everton two summers ago, and Solskjaer insisted his situation remained unchanged.

He added: "I don't have any updates from the last time I spoke to you."
