Romelu Lukaku has been left out of Manchester United's squad for Tuesday's friendly against Kristiansund in Norway.

Lukaku was with United for their pre-season tour of Australia, Singapore and China, but knocks meant the striker missed all four matches.

Belfast Telegraph Sport understands Lukaku has been the subject of a failed 60 million euros (£54 million) bid by Inter Milan, with United giving the Serie A giants a deadline to agree a deal.

On Sunday a picture appeared on the 26-year-old's social media accounts of him and his agent Federico Pastorello, accompanied by the message "soon to be continued."

Lukaku's name was then missing from the 26-player travelling party that United announced on their official website on Monday morning ahead of Tuesday's match at Oslo's Ullevaal Stadium.
