- Romelu Lukaku has rediscovered his form since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
- However, he has fallen down the pecking order in the Norwegian squad
- Solskjaer prefers Marcus Rashford upfront in place of the Belgian striker
Manchester United star, Romelu Lukaku, has addressed exit rumours in a cryptic Instagram post after his future at Old Trafford was thrown into sharp focus.
In the post, the Belgian forward seemed to shut down transfer speculation surrounding his situation at the Red Devils.
"When the hate don’t work they start telling lies," Lukaku wrote on his Instagram story.
Despite the former Everton star appearing to rediscover his form since Jose Mourinho's departure, he has fallen out of favour with new boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Norwegian tactician prefers Marcus Rashford in the central role with Lukaku dropping to the bench.
Reports in the UK contend that Solskjaer made Lukaku aware of his decision to play Rashford in his place during a one-on-one meeting.
The 25-year-old has since been linked with a move to Serie A giants, Juventus, in desperate search for more playing time.
