​​Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did not spill any beans with regards to Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku's future at the Theatre of Dreams this summer. Instead, he simply issued a statement which could mean that the former Everton man could indeed remain at the club.


Lukaku has been heavily tipped for a move to Inter Milan this summer, with delegates from the Serie A giants reported to be in Manchester last week to discuss a potential deal. However, it has been reported that ​the Italian side have ended their pursuit of the striker after failing to meet United's valuation.


Moreover, the Belgian striker was left out of Solskjaer's squad for United's first pre-season game against Perth Glory. 


On being asked if Lukaku will be a United player when they play their first Premier League match of the season, Solskjaer told ​Manchester Evening News, "Let's see when the season starts. We've not had any bids that we're considering."



The manager was then asked about his reasoning behind leaving Lukaku out and whether he would be fit for the clash against Leeds United on Wednesday.


Solskjaer replied, "Yes, he should be fit for Wednesday. He trained yesterday, but it wasn't useful to risk him today to be fair."


The above could mean that either Lukaku wasn't ready to play or United weren't risking him with a potential transfer on the cards. The striker's future will definitely be more clear in the next three weeks for sure.
