Manchester United would reportedly remain open to offloading Romelu Lukaku at the right price during this summer's transfer window.

The Belgium international has been in-and-out of the starting lineup under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during the backend of the campaign and this has spread concerns whether he has a long-term future with the club.

According to The Telegraph, Ole could be prepared to sanction the striker's sale in the summer as he is keen on reducing on the player's wage bill while pursuing a probable replacement.

So far, there have been no enquiries for the services of Lukaku, but it is suggested that Antonio Conte could seek to sign the Belgian, should one of Inter Milan or Juventus hire him as the head coach ahead of next season.

The ex-Everton ace was one of the priority targets for Conte at former club Chelsea and the Italian tactician seems keen on landing the marksman with his potential return to management.
