Man United have constructed some of the worst transfer business in recent years, this regarding both incoming and outgoing at Old Trafford.
Romelu Lukaku is creating a legendary name or a name that will last for a long time in the Inter Milan history books. The ex-United player has found his groove and a sexy groove at that under the supervision of ex-Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte.
The ex-EPL duo has been shaking and baking the Serie A like Rick and Bobby since it kicked off. They fight the Italian champions, Juventus, trying night and day to to steal their throne from them. Lukaku has played an indispensable role in this title push.

He has scored 21 goals in 30 appearances for the San Siro side over all competitions. In his Italian Top Flight run, he has contributed to 19 goals (17 goals and 2 assists) in 23 showings. It is the best manner in which to recover from being heavily criticised by all, for not fitting the bill at United. His time in Manchester also saw consistent double figures. In his 83 games, he scored 35 goals for the club.
This would have helped Ole’s team tremendously in the hunt for top four and Champions League football. Even if it was against the teams in the bottom half only. This is where the Old Trafford outfit has struggled to get three points, against sides below them in the table.
Everton, Aston Villa, Bournemouth, West Ham, Southampton, are all games the English side could have used his services of 20 goals for the season.
The worst was not replacing Lukaku
The Manchester club had no choice but to dip into the market, but they watched some prized targets reject their calls while others picked different locations.
Ole’s problem was not so much getting ridding of the “deadwood”. It was more a case of getting rid and not replacing them seamlessly. Yes, their time at the club was not as fruitful as they’d hope it would be, but they were goal-scoring options. Players that if you gave them a half a chance, they would have buried them.
Having just heard pundits from various outlets climb into Man United for their signing of on-loan striker, Odion Ighalo. The word on the street, internet, and social media link is that it was a signing of desperation.
Well, if they didn’t sell Lukaku and kept him, this debate would have been none existent, and we would have a Man United side competing on all fronts and probably winning at it also.
Now the big Belgian is doing wonders for the rebirth of his career, and United are those licking their wounds. Just recently he was dubbed the hero in the Milan derby over the weekend past, which saw them overjump the Old Lady in the title run.
