Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku is said to enter showdown talks with manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer over his future at the club, next week.
The 25-year-old centre forward is not said to be a part of Solksjaer’s long term plans at United and the club will be ready to sell the Belgian for any figure close to the £75m they paid for him a couple of seasons ago.
"Chris Smalling and Phil Jones must leave."
"I'd give Martial a piggy back to wherever he wants to go."

The striker himself is not too worried about his future but United have kept an eye on his recent comments suggesting his willingness towards a move to Italy if offered one.
Solksjaer has other key areas of the squad he wants to work on and will not block Lukaku’s move should the Belgian decide to leave.
According to Evening Standard the pair of them are set to convene next week to decide Lukaku’s tenure at Old Trafford.
Lukaku’s recent dip in form, Club’s revamp and Solksjaer’s vision of the club going forward will be high on the agenda.
The 45-year-old is keen on acquiring a right-back, central midfielder and right winger this morning and had not factored in the need for an additional forward which indicates that the Belgian’s immediate future at the club is not under threat.
Should Antonio Conte join Inter Milan, Romelu Lukaku would be the first player he’d like to sign for his new team and has already demanded the purchase in talks with Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta. #mufc [Repubblica]

Although should Lukaku leave the Red Devils for Italy, his next club could be highly influenced by Antonio Conte’s next venture as the duo share the same agent, Federico Pastorello.
The Italian is high on the priority list of Inter Milan and should he take charge of the Nerazzurri, it is not rocket science that he’ll target the 25-year-old after previously failing to lure him during his time at Stamford Bridge.
