Old Trafford’s current top news is about their Belgian superstar Romelu Lukaku- and the speculations about his exit. In the meantime, the forward has revealed an interesting parameter of Solskjaer’s boys: their fastest clocked speeds.
The 26 year old posted a video on his Twitter, showing the maximum speed of United’s players, recorded during their training session on 10th July 2019.

As you can see, the Belgian international, despite facing criticism for not being agile on field, scores second highest at 36.25km/h, almost neck to neck with the full back Diogo Dalot, who tops the chart at 36.43km/h.
Strangely, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and the newly arrived Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who are infamous in the Premier League for their rapid abilities, were all clocked below Lukaku.
Red Devils’ most talked transfer of this window, Daniel James, who flaunted his blistering pace against Leeds in a friendly back in July, was slotted at 5th with 35.53km/h.

At the other end of the list was unfortunately Luke Shaw, the 24 year old who only managed to go as high as 31.03 km/h. However, it should be remembered that the English left back suffered a horrendous injury back in 2018, almost causing him to lose his leg.
Lukaku missed the pre season friendlies, and time will tell if the striker is going to land up with Inter, or stay at the Theater of Dreams. Nonetheless, he will be recognized as one of the quickest attackers in recent times.
