It was time for Romelu Lukaku to leave Manchester United according to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian told a news conference Friday that both the club and player were happy with Lukaku's move to Inter Milan to go ahead and that he thinks United got a 'good deal'. Lukaku, who scored 28 Premier League goals over two seasons for United, signed with the Italian side, now managed by former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, in a deal reported by local media at 80 million euros ($89.61 million).
