Romelu Lukaku’s agent has hinted at Manchester United exit in the summer transfer window.
Romelu Lukaku’s future rumours about heading the exit door Manchester United has been persisting since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken over the club. The Belgian International has not been not preferred to Marcus Rashford, and the confirmation of the Norwegian taking over the club on a permanent basis could wind up his future at Manchester United after a two-year stay.
The striker made a move away to the Red Devils in 2016 and has made 90 appearances for the club, scoring 42 times and setting up his teammates on 13 occasions. Despite a decent goalscoring record, the Belgian could favour a move away to another league as his agent Federico Pastorello has hinted a move away to another top European league.
“At the moment he is very focused on finishing the season. The competition for third and fourth place in England is very tight so let’s see what will happen in the future at the end the season. It’s his second season here and he will still have three years on his contract until the end. Let’s see.”
“He’s someone who loves to know a different culture, a different football. ‘He sees a way to have a career playing in different countries because he would like to win some trophies and prove himself and say to his children I won there and I won there and I won there’ and ‘I was a very good player in all the top championships’ so let’s see.”
“The future is really very open but, at the moment, we don’t discuss about that because really the season is in a big moment. ‘He likes Italy. When he was a child he followed a lot the Italian league.” said Pastorello to Sky Sports.
“Everybody agrees today the Premier League is the best but years ago Italy was the best and they were the dreams for the younger footballer players. Teams like Real Madrid and Barcelona of course attract any champion so he sees also in La Liga one day. Bundesliga for sure is a very good championship.”
Lukaku has already spoken about his admiration for the Seria A, and Juventus in particular. It would be an interesting summer for the Red Devils, who are looking to revamp their squad as they prepare to challenge for the Premier League title next campaign.
Here’s how Twitter reacted..
