Meanwhile, Manchester United are also on the verge of losing France global Paul Pogba after his agent Raiola confirmed that he is leaving.

Marcus Rashford! Yes, United already have a talented striker at the club who possess way more in his locker than Lukaku ever will.

The Frenchman was also pictured when Manchester United unveiled their home strip for the upcoming season, which was inspired by the club's 1999 Treble-winning heroics.

And they are determined to keep the France worldwide going into the 2019/20 campaign.

Ausilio's only chance of securing Lukaku will be to meet the €83 million United want, splitting it between cash up front and add-ons.

After Manchester United's failure to qualify for next season's Champions League, Lukaku reportedly made it clear that he wants to play in Europe next season.

It has been claimed that United have contacted the Serie A club regarding the transfer of Milenkovic.

But it is understood the La Liga giants would have to pay double what United spent on Pogba three years ago. The 21-year-old Serb presently plies his trade for Fiorentina.

Matic seems to be over the hill and is not the midfielder that he was in the past, while Pogba has openly said that he would like to leave Manchester United.

It remains to be seen if United will pursue a move for Longstaff, with Sporting's Bruno Fernandes still on their radar too.

However, there has been no bid tabled so far.

However, Real could be ready to test United's resolve with an opening offer.

Pogba received a loud cheer from the crowd but also some boos when his name was read out at the start of training.

United are now in Perth, Australia on the first leg of their pre-season tour, in which they will square up against Perth Glory and Leeds United.
