Lukaku questions Man Utd transfer policy as Solskjaer eyes attacker

Romelu Lukaku has questioned Manchester United's decision to try and sign a forward in the summer transfer window.

United have made no secret of their desire to sign Jadon Sancho or indeed Ousmane Dembele as a back up.

Edinson Cavani's name has also been linked with the club as United look to bolster their attack.

But Lukaku has pointed out the effects this could have on the rest of the team, including Anthony Martial.

"If you buy another striker, what are you going to do with Anthony [Martial]?" Lukaku told The Times. "He's not being the No 9 at a great club.

"Give him the full season to confirm what he did last year instead of bringing in someone big to disrupt the chemistry in the dressing room.

"Then you have Mason's transition that is going to happen any time soon from right wing to No 9, and Mason is a killer. I've seen him first hand. He's got something."

United are running out of time with the transfer window closing on Monday evening but Solskjaer says the club are still working hard.

The club has been working," he said. "They [United] know my view.

"The transfer window is still open for a little while. If something happens in or out you will get to know.

"There are many ways of improving a team. I keep reading about the players who should be playing instead of the ones who aren't because they are performing well. That tells me I have a strong squad. There is competition for places.

"We need results. That is the only way of affecting the mood at the club – the players and staff. All the rest is short-term moods."
