(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED MANAGER, OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, SAYING ABOUT HOW UNITED CAN REPLACE LUKAKU'S GOALS: "Of course Rom has a good record and good stats.

He's one of the top number 9's around when you want to play with that kind of striker.

He's that target man for me I'm very confident that we'll get goals from Martial, Rashford.

Dan James will come in and create.

I'm sure Jesse Lingard will come in and get more.

So, we do have a different attacking set-up this season.

Yes, we do." 4.

WHITE FLASH 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED MANAGER, OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, SAYING ABOUT PAUL POGBA: "Always the same.

He's been great.

I've said every time I've been asked about Paul I keep saying the same things, when he comes in, when he plays, when he trains, he's absolutely fantastic." STORY: It was time for Romelu Lukaku to leave Manchester United according to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian told a news conference Friday (August 9) 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).

Solskjaer believes his current set of attackers, including Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard, can step up and score goals in place of Lukaku.

The United manager also talked up his team's summer signings, which include young Welsh talent Dan James and England defender Harry Maguire, and praised Paul Pogba's 'fantastic' attitude after the French World Cup winner was heavily linked with a move away from the club over the summer.
