After scoring just 15 goals in 45 appearances last season, it’s been rather unsurprising to see Manchester United look to offload Romelu Lukaku this summer.
The Belgian forward has endured a difficult time at Old Trafford since arriving from Premier League rivals Everton and has struggled to endear himself to the United faithful.
Reports in recent weeks had suggested Serie A giants Inter were very much interested in taking Lukaku to Italy, but in an update from Sky Sports, the 26-year-old returned to United’s pre-season training earlier than expected.

After hearing the news, Red Devils fans took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the matter and many were rather surprised at seeing Lukaku back at the club’s training base at Carrington.
Some supporters admitted that the striker’s professionalism was impressive and showed he had the right attitude even when it appeared likely he could be on his way out of the club.
Others however wondered why Lukaku was still there and urged both him and United to get a deal sorted for him to leave, so that they could plan for the future without him.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
As much as I wouldn’t be devastated to see him go. I can’t help but feel there’s still a player in there! His goal scoring record for Belgium with the right service is really good! Maybe we’ve just never played to his strengths

rate him or not. he’s a good professional. May be he has the half of Martial’s skill, but he’s one of the few right examples for the youngsters in the club.
