Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should have forced Romelu Lukaku to stay at Manchester United and told him how important he is in his plans, claims former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood.

Lukaku left United in the summer transfer window to join Serie A side Inter Milan.

The Belgian made it clear he wanted a move to Italy and play under Antonio Conte, who wanted to sign him in 2017 when he was Chelsea head coach.

His departure means United are now short up front as they did not bring in a replacement before the window slammed shut.

If I was a manager at Manchester United, with him kicking and screaming and punching me every single day, I would not have let him leave the football club

Marcus Rashford has played the majority of this season so far as the lone frontman, with Anthony Martial currently out injured and 17-year-old Mason Greenwood yet to start a Premier League game.

Sherwood says despite United’s struggles they are still the second biggest club in the world.

And he claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should have sold that to Lukaku to ensure he did not demand a move away.

“Lukaku, if I was a manager at Manchester United, with him kicking and screaming and punching me every single day, I would not have let him leave the football club,” Sherwood told Premier League Productions.

“I would have let that window close and I would have managed the situation because I would have told him how important he is to this massive football club.

“This is an illustrious football club, everybody knows that worldwide.

“There’s probably only Real Madrid that’s bigger than Manchester United.

“It’s a privilege to play, get him playing, get him on the pitch, even [Alexis] Sanchez.

“As much as he might not have wanted [to stay], he might have been a bad egg in the dressing room, turn him around, make sure he’s not.”

Lukaku has scored three goals for Inter so far in his eight appearances for the San Siro club.
