Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may let Romelu Lukaku leave and not sign a replacement.

After the fiasco of the last few days in the Romelu Lukaku Paulo Dybala saga, United is considering their options.

While the United manager would ideally like to sign a world-class striker. Preferably one with a tendency to dominate on the right-wing.

It is understood he is quite content with letting the Belgian international leave. Then giving 17-year-old Mason Greenwood his big chance.

Greenwood was very impressive in the preseason, scoring twice.

According to ESPN, Solskjaer is so infuriated with players putting money before the club he is willing to take that risk.

The general consensus on the Dybala deal was that the Argentine was motivated by money.

Demanding 10 million-plus a year and then around 18 million for his agent.

While he has not ruled out the Red Devils making any more signings. He will not be bullied or forced into signing players who do not agree with his philosophy.

Solskjaer comes from a generation where the badge on the shirt meant more than any amount of money.

He still believes he can convince Paul Pogba to be at the heart of this revolution.

Manchester United do not want players who are not committed to the cause. While Lukaku sat on the bench and sulked through the preseason.

Hats off to Pogba he got on with the job and was a true professional. Arguably one of their best players in preseason.

Inter are now favorites to land United’s number 9. They are expected to submit a new offer soon.
