Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that the Red Devils have enough players to cover up the loss of Romelu Lukaku this season. The Belgian striker left Old Trafford to join Inter Milan in a £73m deal after talks about a possible swap deal with Juventus broke down.
Lukaku finished as United’s second top-scorer with 15 goals last season. However, following a rumoured fall-out with Solskjaer, the 26-year-old switched his alleigance to Inter Milan on the Premier League transfer deadline day this summer.
Manchester United were under pressure to sign a suitable replacement up front but failed to do so. However, Solskjaer is of the opinion that his squad has enough depth in the striker department to cope up with Lukaku’s loss. Speaking about the same, he said,
“It was time now for Romelu Lukaku to go. I think we got a good deal and he is happy so I think both parties ended that deal as it should be.”
“Romelu was injured for a while this pre-season and he did not participate, so I just hope for him he will get a good start at Inter Milan.”
“I have always had a good relationship with Rom, open and honest. We have always spoken to each other frankly.
“I have no issue between me and Rom but we are now obviously very happy with who is here.”
Manchester United are set to face Chelsea at Old Trafford in their Premier League opener tomorrow.
