Manchester United chief Ed Woodward is in charge of transfers and contracts

Romelu Lukaku has been told he is free to find a new club this summer as Manchester United step up the overhaul of their failing squad, Football Insider understands.

Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to assemble a vibrant side with an emphasis on youth and the Belgium striker has found himself surplus to requirements.

A United source has told Football Insider that Solskjaer has informed Lukaku, 26, he can leave two years after joining from Everton for a fee of £75million rising to £90million.

The add-ons needed to reach the maximum figure have not yet been activated but United do not want to take a financial hit on the front man, who scored 15 goals this season despite losing his regular starting role.

The Premier League giants are looking to get close to a £75million price for Lukaku although they accept there are only a limited number of clubs in the world who can afford such a fee.

Lukaku has scored 42 goals in 96 United games in two seasons and was a virtual untouchable under ex-boss Jose Mourinho, responding with 27 goals in his debut campaign.
