Manchester United’s summer is set to be a busy one for all involved at the club if everything you read in the press is to be believed at the moment.
The Red Devils are looking at bringing in some new players as well as looking to move out those who are not performing for the club, and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces a big task as he takes the reins of the club now he is permanent manager.
With plenty of movement expected at Old Trafford, the futures of some of their big names are looking more and more under threat.
And one man whose future is up for debate following the latest update this weekend is that of Romelu Lukaku, who is set to discuss his future with the club at the end of the season after falling from first choice under the new management regime.
The big Belgian striker has still played a big part for United this term, but something is not quite sitting right with him, and with Marcus Rashford emerging as the main man and Anthony Martial also putting in some decent performances, Lukaku could find himself not needed.
We here in the Tavern don’t feel like it’s too much of a problem either should Lukaku be moved on by the club, especially given the money they could still command should a buyer be found.
It’s nothing against Lukaku and the talent he possesses, but things just haven’t quite clicked of late for him, and a fresh start might be the best for both club and player on this one.
United could use the money to reinvest in young and hungry talent, and while Lukaku will be a loss, he isn’t an irreplaceable one by all means.
