MANCHESTER UNITED will listen to transfer bids for £75million-rated Romelu Lukaku this summer, according to reports.
The Belgium international is hoping to join Juventus if he is forced out of Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed United are bracing themselves for a major squad overhaul this summer following their humiliating Champions League defeat to Barcelona.
And according to the Telegraph, Lukaku could be one of the players making way for new arrivals after failing to adapt to Solskjaer’s philosophy.
His representative Federico Pastorello has already said before that the Red Devils striker is “very open” to moving away from Old Trafford, with Italy being a likely destination.
Former Chelsea coach Antonio Conte, who shares an agent with the Belgian, has been linked with Juve and Inter Milan and would reportedly be interested in signing the striker once he lands either job.
Lukaku chose United over Conte’s Chelsea in 2017 after agreeing a £75m move from Everton.
And the Red Devils are now believed to be holding out for a similar sum from potential suitors.
However, the fee might prove to be a major obstacle in finding a side interested in the player, considering the Belgian also pockets a hefty £255,000 per week.
Lukaku has scored 15 goals and added four assists this season, but has been heavily criticised for inconsistency in his form.
