Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained the thought process that led to the sale of Romelu Lukaku to the Italian Serie A earlier this week.
Solskjaer talked about the decision to sell Lukaku during his pre-match press conference on Friday as he prepared his team for the mouthwatering clash with Chelsea.
Manchester United welcome the reigning Europa League champions and top four rivals to Old Trafford in what’s their debut league game this season.
According to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the other Manchester United attackers can replace the goals of Romelu Lukaku in the team.

The former Manchester United striker also said that he doesn’t want to play with a target man.
Romelu Lukaku was also fed up with life at Old Trafford having lost his place as the central striker to Marcus Rashford.
Solskjaer has preferred Rashford over Lukaku since his appointment as the Manchester United manager in December 2018.
Lukaku sealed his club-record breaking move to Inter Milan earlier this week in a deal said to be worth £73.9m.
The 26-year-old has already been given the number 9 jersey at Inter Milan who will pay an upfront fee of £64.7m to Manchester United in addition to £7.2m in add-ons.
