Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is set for talks with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this week, while Romelu Lukaku wants his future resolved before the squad leave for their preseason tour, sources have told ESPN FC.

Pogba is scheduled to appear at the adidas store in New York on Tuesday afternoon before flying back to Manchester to begin preseason training.

- When does the transfer window close?

It will be the first time the France international has spoken to Solskjaer face-to-face since suggesting he wants a "new challenge" amid interest from Real Madrid and Juventus.

Solskjaer is keen to keep Pogba at Old Trafford and, according to sources, will attempt to convince the 26-year-old to stay.

The midfielder has three years left on his contract and has been told the club are under no pressure to sell.

Lukaku, meanwhile, is keen on a move to Inter Milan but in the absence of an acceptable bid from the Serie A side will be expected to fly to Australia with the rest of Solskjaer's squad on July 7.

The striker has indicated to the club he wants a clearer picture of his future before the flight to Perth.

United are scheduled to face Inter in Singapore on July 20.

Lukaku and Jesse Lingard reported back early to Carrington to Monday despite being given extra time off after taking part in June internationals.

All senior players are expected back this week with the exception of Alexis Sanchez, who is still involved in the Copa America with Chile.

Solskjaer, according to sources, will use training this week to finalise his squad for the preseason tour of Australia, Singapore, Shanghai and Norway.

Youngsters Dylan Levitt, Ethan Hamilton, Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong, Mason Greenwood and James Garner were all part of the senior squad on Monday but have not yet been told whether they will fly to Perth on Sunday.
