Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes it was the right time for Romelu Lukaku to leave Manchester United.
The 26-year-old ended his two-season stint at Old Trafford on Thursday, joining Inter Milan in an 80 million euros (£73.75million) deal.
“It was time now for Rom to go because I think we got a good deal, he’s happy, so I think both parties ended that deal as it should be,” he said.
“Rom was injured for a while this pre-season, he didn’t participate, so I just hope for him that he’ll get a good start at Inter Milan.”
“Towards the end of last season, we didn’t score a lot of goals, did we?” he said.
“And you do have players that you think will have an impact and Mason Greenwood’s pathway would have been a lot more difficult, of course if we had another forward there.
“For me, I believe Mason is going to be playing and involved a lot and when he is, he’ll score goals.”
