Lukaku joined Man United from Everton in a reported £75m deal plus add-ons, back in 2017.

The Belgian had established himself as one of the Premier League’s best strikers at the time, delivering 87 goals and 29 assists during his four years with the Toffees.

However, while the 27-year-old never managed to hit the heights that were expected of him in Manchester, he still achieved a respectable 55 goal involvements in 96 appearances for the Red Devils.

Lukaku had the opportunity to play for current manager Solskjaer during his final season at the club, when the Norwegian was brought in as a caretaker coach in December 2018.

However, Lukaku’s time with the former Molde manager didn’t last long as he was shipped off to Inter Milan in the summer of 2019.

Additionally, some reports at the time claimed that there was a rift between the striker and Solskjaer at the club.
