Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified two replacements for Lukaku

According to The Express, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is interested in selling Romelu Lukaku. This will the increase the transfer budget of the Manchester United. Lukaku wants to leave club and would like to join Antonio Conte at Inter Milan. Manchester United wants £80m for the striker, but Inter Milan doesn’t seem interested in paying that transfer fee.

Reports claims that Ole is interested in Lyon’s Moussa Dembele and Lille’s Nicolas Pepe are both fascinating choices. Manchester United has made an opening bid worth more than £35m for Dembele. He is 22, and has attracted interest from Liverpool also. Nicolas Pepe is 24 and has good pace the striker could be make a nice fit upfront with Marcus Rashford.

I would love to see either one of these players come to United because not only do they fall in line with the club’s new policy of signing young players of a certain age, they are cheaper than strikers like a Paulo Dybala or Antoine Griezmann that would be much more expensive. The quality of these players is the most important thing right now and not the quantity of money that we pay for them.

Time is running out on United to get the certain number of players into the club. We have signed two so far, Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. According to most reports in England is that Solskjaer wants five players in total. We would need to sign these players before the end of this month.
