Romelu Lukaku says he made the decision to leave Manchester United in March, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanting him to stay on at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils made their money back on the Belgium international striker when selling him to Serie A giants Inter for £75 million ($97m).

A summer switch has been questioned by many, with United having initially struggled for attacking inspiration without Lukaku on their books.

Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford have shown signs of promise over recent weeks, but Solskjaer remains without a physical presence in the final third of the field.

He had wanted Lukaku to play that role in 2019-20, with the 26-year-old tied to a long-term contract, but the decision to part ways had been made long before the summer window opened.

“Solskjaer has my eternal respect. He understood me when I said in March that it was time for me to leave England,” Lukaku told Het Belang van Limburg.

“I have been in the Premier League as an 18-year-old boy and now I am 26. Solskjaer wanted to keep me, but I was ready for something new.”

Lukaku, who faced criticism at times during his spell with United, has enjoyed a productive start in new surroundings. (BBC)
