Manchester United frontman Romelu Lukaku is reportedly growing concerned over diminishing role under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and is open to leaving the club this summer.

The Belgium international was one of predecessor Jose Mourinho’s most trusted players, but he has been used more sporadically by Solskjaer and was left on the bench in crucial matches away to Barcelona and at home to Manchester City.

He started against Chelsea at the weekend but gave an underwhelming performance, while Solskjaer is believed to want a versatile, mobile forward this summer which would limit Lukaku’s chances further.

According to the Manchester Evening News, that has forced Lukaku to consider leaving the club this season due to fears over his role under the Norwegian coach going forward.

He feels increasingly marginalised and has taken umbrage with a number of Solskjaer’s recent selection decisions.

Although he never would have countenanced leaving while Mourinho was in charge, that position has changed and he is fully aware of interest from elsewhere, particularly Serie A.

Friends of the Belgian believe the current situation ‘could bring him away’ from Old Trafford, though he has nothing lined up and is focused on getting to the end of the season with United before weighing up his options.

Inter, AC Milan and Juventus have been linked with Lukaku, and he told Sky Sport Italia just last week that he would like to play in Italy.

He explained: ‘Serie A is a dream, it would really be a dream. I hope I can play there at some point, although right now I’m focused on United and finishing fourth.’
