Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is including Romelu Lukaku in his plans for next season because of doubts about whether Inter Milan have the money to prise the striker away from Old Trafford, sources have told ESPN FC.
Lukaku is keen on a move to the San Siro but talks between club representatives in London this week ended without the Serie A side making a formal offer because of a significant gap between their respective valuations.
Romelu Lukaku was absent from Manchester United's opening training session in Perth on Thursday as speculation continues about his future.

Romelu Lukaku has returned early to preseason training with Manchester United in a bid to impress manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in case a move to Inter Milan does not materialise, sources have told ESPN FC.
