Romelu Lukaku has not been named in Manchester United's 26-man squad for a pre-season friendly against Kristiansund in Oslo.
Both the Belgium international, who has yet to feature for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side during United's pre-season, and defender Matteo Darmian will not be travelling to Norway for Tuesday's friendly.

Sky Sports News understands Lukaku has a 'minor injury' and is currently working at the club's Carrington training ground, with United saying he is "not yet ready to play".
Sky Sports News also understands Juventus are preparing an offer for Lukaku and are willing to include Paulo Dybala as part of the deal - but the Argentine himself wants to remain in Turin.
Until last week, United have been negotiating with Inter Milan for Lukaku but the clubs remain far apart in their valuation of the 26-year-old.
The Serie A side made a bid of £53.9m upfront for Lukaku with no add-ons earlier this month which was rejected by United.
It is understood United would want in excess of the £79m they paid to sign Lukaku from Everton in 2016 if they are to allow him to leave Old Trafford.
Lyon striker Moussa Dembele will be on United's shortlist if the club sell Romelu Lukaku, Sky Sports News understands.
