EPL: Solskjaer reveals why Man Utd sold Lukaku, no replacement was signed

"Lukaku is ours" chanted Inter Milan ecstatic fans who turned out at the airport to welcome him on his arrival during the night.

"I'm here to bring the Nerazzurri back to the top".

Ahead of Chelsea's opening-weekend trip to Old Trafford, however, Lampard insisted the criticism Solskjaer has faced is not justified.

The 81-cap Belgium global spent two seasons in Manchester, scoring 28 goals in 66 appearances for the Red Devils.

Less than 24 hours to the close of transfer window in England, injury time hope appears to be rising for want away Manchester United ace Romelu Lukaku. That was my feeling.

"Over the years, players have wanted to leave, it's not anything new".

Considering his goalscoring record in the two years at the club, Lukaku is not at the elite level of strikers.

Speaking as the club the ex-United stars now own, Salford City, signed a five-year sponsorship deal with communications giant TalkTalk, Phil Neville said: "He started well, didn't he?"
