He was a household name during his time at Everton and everyone expected a lot from the Belgian forward.

Lukaku scored six Premier League goals after Solskjaer was appointed, initially on an interim basis.

Manchester United have triggered an option to extend Nemanja Matic's contract until the end of next season.

"Odion is reaping what he deserves after many sacrifices, after many years around Europe", Bastianelli told TuttoSport, per Sport Witness.

" I had to decide over going someplace where I can find out various other elements of my video game and deal with someone that wanted me also".

Lukaku has excelled in his debut campaign in Italy, scoring 23 goals in 35 outings in all competitions.

"They're going the right way because they're bringing in the right players", Lukaku said.

With momentum behind them, Manchester United were hopeful of pushing into the top four before the season was suspended due to the Coronavirus outbreak across Europe and the world.

Ighalo had an impressive time with Watford in which he scored forty goals in hundred appearances.

The Belgian striker ended up leaving Manchester United to sign for Inter Milan in the summer transfer window a year ago after plenty of speculation about his future.

The first was Juventus, who had been searching for a new striker, and Lukaku has revealed he was close to joining the Serie A leaders.

Lukaku left England to joint Inter Milan and Antonio Conte in a move worth over £70m.

"It was close. It was really close but my mind was always set on Inter... and the manager", Lukaku said. When I was a kid, Inter was my team in Italy.

"Ole wanted me to stay, but I told him I was over".
