Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed Romelu Lukaku will not play in Saturday's friendly against Inter Milan in Singapore.

The Belgium striker, who has been linked with a big-money move to Inter this summer, will not be involved in the International Champions Cup clash between the sides.

Asked if Lukaku would play, Solskjaer told a press conference: "No, he's not fit, so he won't be available."

Asked further about the speculation surrounding the frontman, Solskjaer added: "I don't have any updates from the last time I spoke to you."

Lukaku also missed Wednesday's 4-0 win over Leeds, as did keeper David de Gea and full-back Luke Shaw, and both could feature against the Serie A side.

Solskjaer said: "I think both will be available. Luke did a decent training session yesterday before we left, and David trained today, so we'll try to get 60 or longer out of him. It shouldn't be too difficult - he's a keeper."

Defender Matteo Darmian and midfielder Fred have both joined up with the squad, and they will be assessed.

Solskjaer said: "Today, obviously, we're going to have to see where they're at. They've been training back home and Fred has been back over in Brazil and had his wedding and got married, so he's probably got loads of energy and I'm sure he's keen to join in."
