Romelu Lukaku could be set to rejoin Chelsea – if he doesn't sign for Man Utd
Fjortoft, who played for Middlesbrough, moved into coaching with Denmark and is now a TV pundit, made the transfer claim today.
He tweeted: “I guess Lukaku wants to go to Man UTD. Only problem is that Chelsea could have 1st option.
“But my guess: The new Man UTD-striker.”
He continued to discuss the move with other followers and wrote: “If Chelsea have done their homework they have an option. But understand he is main-target for Man UTD.”
Fjortoft then traded messages with Belgian expert Kristof Terreur, who confirmed Chelsea have no buy-back option.

Speaking after Belgium's 2-1 win over the Czech Republic on Monday, Lukaku told Belgian newspaper HLN: "We are now in talks with the (unnamed) club and I am looking forward.
"I want to play in the Champions League and try to win the Premier League – that would be best of all."
Chelsea are strong favourites to re-sign Romelu Lukaku
My agent knows what is going to happen and I know as well
Chelsea are strong favourites to re-sign the player, whom they sold to Everton for £28million in 2014, although former Blues boss Jose Mourinho is thought to want him at Old Trafford.
Bayern are latest to be linked with the 24-year-old, who admits a decision has been made.
Lukaku told Sky Sports News: "My agent knows what is going to happen and I know as well.
"I'm staying calm and we have an agreement with the club as well. We stay calm and at least we have a direction where we want to go.
"I'm just going to rest for a few days and then just prepare for next season. I want to put the time in on my holiday to take everything to another level and be better than I was last year."
