Romelu Lukaku joined Inter from United in the summer and the Nerazzurri also signed Alexis Sanchez on loan.

“Well, to be fair, I think it was for Ashley, you know,” explained Ole. “He is 35 in the summer and, if he gets a two-year contract somewhere, I think it’s up to him to take that. We weren’t ready to offer that.

“He’s been a good servant for the club. He’s been captain and he’s won trophies, leagues, cups, but we’ve got players coming through.

“So it was time now, then. When Ashley’s head and mindset was on ‘yeah, I want to try this’, why not do it now?“

The 34-year-old touched down in Milan to complete his medical ahead of the £1.2million move to the San Siro outfit.
