United should let Lukaku go - Schmeichel

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel feels the club are better off letting Romelu Lukaku go if he doesn't want to be there.

Inter Milan and Juventus are both thought to be interested in the striker - who is training away from the United squad in Belgium.

Schmeichel tells Sky Sports News, Lukaku's departure would also help manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tactically.

"At the end of the day if you have someone like Lukaku you have to play in a certain way with him. He's a very dominant player," Schmeichel told Sky Sports.

"When you play Romelu, you have to play in a particular way, if he doesn't want to play at the club then it leaves you free to play another way.

"So it is an opportunity for the club, as well as being very sad.

"Once he said, 'I don't want to be here', I don't think it is beneficial for anyone that you force him to stay. I'm sure it is going to be resolved."

Schmeichel has also warned his former teammate Solskjaer not to rush into last-minute business tomorrow.

"I think, anything that happens on the last day - unless it has been ongoing - smells of panic. And I don't think Manchester United should be that kind of club.

"You should plan ahead, and already know what you are going to do in the next transfer window and the next.

"Man City have done all their business, Liverpool have done all their business. That's the competition at the moment, you have to look at what they do."
