The rumour was already out there since a few days: Manchester United might decide to sell Romelu Lukaku this upcoming summer and if that happens, United would still have quality attacking options such as Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Alexis Sanchez. The Premier League heavyweights are keen on replacing the out-of-favour Belgian striker with either Paulo Dybala or Mauro Icardi, with the forward open to joining Juventus.

It appears Manchester United have finally run out of patience with Romelu Lukaku after his nightmare of a season and now they are set to offload him in the summer as they attempt to fund some huge transfer moves.

And in a sweetener to try and absorb the £100m fee both players will command the Old Trafford hierarchy are prepared to include Belgium global Lukaku in any deal.

Lukaku has been a big disappointment since his £75m move to Manchester United from Everton in 2017 when Jose Mourinho was still in charge.

But his much-publicized downward spiral into depression, drug abuse and obesity saw him vacate his trio of world titles. British heavyweight Tyson Fury has signed a fight deal with a United States television network worth a reported £80m .

Lukaku, at the moment, has fallen down the pecking order under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and the Mirror hinted the Red Devils are ready to let him go.

The report claimed that the Red Devils are prepared to include Lukaku as part of their offer and the striker is "aware of the situation".

The former Chelsea FC striker has netted 36 times in 83 games in all competitions since his switch to Manchester United.

Icardi has been in the news recently having been stripped of the Inter Milan captaincy and left out of their Europa League squad in midweek as they beat Rapid Wien away from home.
