Romelu Lukaku is training again with Anderlecht on Tuesday while Manchester United refuse to comment on the striker’s actions.
The Belgium star does not feature in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s long-term plans for the Red Devils and is available for sale.
But United are looking for a fee in excess of the £75million they paid Everton two years ago, which has so far priced out Inter Milan and Juventus.
In the meantime, Lukaku has yet to feature in pre-season, despite travelling with the club on the tour to Australia and the Far East.
He was left out of the squad which faced AC Milan in Cardiff on Saturday and on Monday, he was pictured training with his former club Anderlecht.
United refused to say whether he had been given permission to return to Belgium, revealing only that Solskjaer’s first-team squad had the day off.
But Lukaku was reportedly due to report back to Carrington on Tuesday morning, but instead he has again been pictured training with Anderlecht.
