Romelu Lukaku drops Man Utd exit hint with agent selfie

Romelu Lukaku’s latest post on Twitter suggests he and agent Federico Pastorello may be working on a move away from Manchester United.

Romelu Lukaku appeared to hint he could be close to leaving Old Trafford after posting a selfie with his agent.

The Belgium international uploaded a photograph to Twitter on Saturday showing him with his agent Federico Pastorello, captioned: “Soon to be continued.”

The post has fuelled speculation the forward could be closing in on a transfer away from Old Trafford, with Italy considered his most likely destination.

Inter boss Antonio Conte has confirmed he would like to sign the former Chelsea forward, but reports suggest United have turned down the Nerazzurri’s advances until now as they want a fee in the region of £75million.

Juventus are also reported to be interested in the 26-year-old and it was claimed in England and Italy on Friday that they could offer Paulo Dybala as part of any deal.

Lukaku conceded in April he wanted to play in Italy’s top flight “sooner or later” and described Antonio Conte as the best manager in the world last month.

Lukaku has scored 28 Premier League goals in 66 matches for United since joining from Everton two years ago, but head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is believed to prefer Marcus Rashford as first-choice striker.

Last week, Solskjaer described Lukaku as one of the “top, top strikers in the world” but felt the red devils had coped well without him during pre-season, with the Belgian unable to play due to injury.

Manchester United have already beaten Perth Glory, Leeds United, Inter and Tottenham in pre-season, with Martial, Mason Greenwood and Rashford among the goalscorers.

They will play Kristiansund in a friendly game on Tuesday before meeting AC Milan in their final International Champions Cup match in Cardiff on August 3.
