Lukaku hits out at 'lies' after Pogba row report

Romelu Lukaku appears to have denied claims of a dressing room bust-up with team-mate Paul Pogba following Manchester United's win over Southampton.

Manchester United are preparing a big offer for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala if Romelu Lukaku leaves Old Trafford this summer, according to a report in England.

Neither man is exactly well-known for using social media in a muted manner, so you can imagine the celebrations after Rashford sent United through...

Granted, some of United's playing staff looked understandably nervous in the early stages of the game - after all, the Premier League outfit were dealing with an injury list more extensive than Neymar's tattoo collection.

In the dying minutes of the game, with United needing one goal to win it and progress to the quarter-finals, the referee made a decision to consult VAR for a long range Dalot effort that had hit Kimpembe's outstretched arm.

Lukaku, 25, has come under major criticism at United this season and lost his place in the starting XI to Marcus Rashford since the arrival of interim manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer in December.

Posting to his Instagram account, Pogba wrote: "When the hate don't work they start telling lies..." He wanted it to complete his treble but, as the designated penalty taker, Pogba would not let him.

"I know he's going to stay, there's no doubt about that", he told Viasport. It depends which newspaper, though.

No side had ever overcome a two-goal home loss and progressed from a knockout match in the competition's history, but United wound back the years to seal a memorable triumph in the French capital.

Having left Manchester United on cold terms, Di Maria was heavily critiqued by the Old Trafford crowd during the first-leg.
