Romelu Lukaku has been rested for Manchester United's pre-season friendly opener against Perth Glory.

Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio flew to London to meet United officials earlier this week to discuss a deal for Lukaku, 26, but United have still not received a formal offer for the goalscorer.

Everton have a sell-on clause that entitles them to £5m from any fee Lukaku leaves for, which is partially why United want to obtain more than £75m from Inter.



Lukaku, Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof and Lee Grant were absent from the United teamsheet at the Optus Stadium and it is understood Lukaku is carrying a small niggle.

United have decided it is better not to risk Lukaku, who is attracting strong interest from Internazionale, but he should be fit to face Leeds at the Optus on Wednesday.

The fee Lukaku commanded two years ago, his age and new Inter coach Antonio Conte's desire to sign the Belgian, having missed out on him when he was Juventus and then Chelsea coach, have driven up Lukaku's valuation.

United have not quoted Inter a specific fee for Lukaku but believe his value is north of the £75m they paid Everton up front two years ago due to the inflated transfer market.
