Romelu Lukaku & Manchester United
Will Romelu Lukaku still be a Man United player at the start of the 2019-20 season?
Rumours have swirled in recent weeks suggesting that Lukaku could leave Old Trafford for Inter Milan.
Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is now in charge of Inter.
Inter Milan are believed to want Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku but Manchester United have valued the 26-year-old at £62m.

On Tuesday, Lukaku was in action for Belgium in a Euro 2020 qualifier against Scotland.
After the game Lukaku was pressed about his Man United future.
The 75 million pound signing from Everton indicated that his future may lie away from Manchester.
Lukaku confirmed he plans to talk with the Red Devils and his agent Federico Pastorello about his next career move. He added:
I know what I’ll do, but won’t say it. We’ll see. If I expect a busy summer? Yes.
“I have a contract with Man United. I’ll speak with my club and my agent Federico Pastorello to make the best decision. I am going to enjoy my holidays with my family now. I know what I’ll do, but won’t say it. We’ll see. If I expect a busy summer? Yes.”#mufc pic.twitter.com/z9R0fnLIzI

Man United hope to keep David De Gea
The Telegraph have an update on David De Gea on Wednesday.
It’s been a rough week for De Gea, as he’s lost his place as Spain’s #1 to Chelsea keeper Kepa.
At the same time, the Telegraph note that De Gea has been linked with possible moves to either PSG or Juventus.
But will Man United manage to hold onto their goalie?
The Telegraph claim that a new contract offer is ready to be presented to De Gea:
United are insistent De Gea will not be sold this summer, despite the threat of losing him as a free agent at the end of next season, and remain in dialogue with the goalkeeper’s agent, Jorge Mendes.
De Gea’s existing contract is worth around £240,000 a week and he has been seeking a deal closer to Alexis Sanchez’s £500,000 a week salary although it is unclear at this stage what United are prepared to offer their No. 1.
