Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has been left out of the squad for the preseason tour of Norway amidst the transfer rumours linking him with a move away from the Theatre of Dreams.

Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer named a 26-man squad for the club friendly against Kristiansund and Lukaku was a notable absentee.

The Belgian striker has been linked with two Italian clubs namely Inter Milan and Juventus.

Apart from Romelu Lukaku, Matteo Darmian was also missing from the preseason squad.

Matteo Darmian has one year left on his current contract with Manchester United and he has been linked with a return to Italy with clubs like Inter Milan, Torino and Juventus.

Belgian international Lukaku is on his way out of Manchester United after two years at the club.

The recent development has further thrown his future at Manchester United into serious doubts.

He was pictured with his agent at the weekend with an Instagram caption which reads “Soon To Be Continued”

Inter Milan are the favourites to sign Lukaku ahead of Juventus.

The Italians have had a series of offers turned down for Lukaku with Manchester United requesting for the majority of the £75m transfer fee spent on him two years ago.
