The 26-year-old is believed to be on Antonio Conte’s radar at Inter Milan, with personal terms said to have already been agreed
Belgium manager Roberto Martinez says ‘it is clear’ Romelu Lukaku has to leave Manchester United this summer.
The 26-year-old failed to hold down a regular starting place under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as United slumped to a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League last season.
It has put Lukaku’s Old Trafford future in doubt amid interest from Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan.
Martinez told Belgian publication HLN: “It is clear that he has to leave Manchester United.
“It would be a good thing for both parties. It is now important that Romelu finds the right club.”
During his time as Chelsea manager, Conte tried to sign Lukaku in 2017 before the Belgium striker instead joined United in a £75million deal.

Earlier this month, the former Everton star revealed he had made a decision on his future, while once again teasing a move to Serie A.
Lukaku told Italian outlet Mediaset: “It’s good that Conte went to Inter, for me, he is the best coach in the world.
“As for my future, I have already made a decision that I still cannot communicate publicly out of respect for Manchester United with whom I have a contract.
“I am a big Serie A fan, those close to me know that I have always wanted to play in the English league and in the Italian one, I love Italy.
“And then Cristiano Ronaldo arrived, Sarri will go to Juventus, Ancelotti is at Napoli, it will be an exciting Serie A.
“The club and my agent will talk about it but I have already made my decision.”
