Scholes says Man Utd wrong to sell Lukaku

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes thinks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made a mistake selling Romelu Lukaku.

Solskjaer has only Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and teenager Mason Greenwood in his forward stocks.

And Scholes thinks Solskjaer should've stopped Lukaku joining Inter Milan if he didn't have a replacement lined-up.

He told talkSPORT: "That's the one thing that disappoints me.

"He (Solskjaer) obviously knew they were going to sell Lukaku at some point, but not to have a centre-forward lined up seems like a mistake to me.

"Whether they did, whether it dragged on too long from the club's point of view, I don't know.

"They're going into a season without a centre-forward when it's a club that is known for its attacking style and had probably four centre-forwards in its heyday.

"So to go in there with Rashford and Martial, who you're not quite sure if they're left-wingers or centre-forwards, we don't know. But I'm sure it'll get sorted."
