Lukaku agent hints striker would be open to move away from Manchester United

Romelu Lukaku would be open to a move away from Manchester United this summer, according to the player’s agent.

Lukaku signed for United from Everton in a £75m deal in 2017, and has since scored 42 goals in 90 appearances for the club.

The Belgium international had been linked with a move away from the club in recent months, having lost his place in the team to Marcus Rashford, but has since returned to form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scoring six goals in his past five appearances.

Despite his return to the side the 25-year-old’s agent, Federico Pastorello, has hinted the forward’s future may be away from Old Trafford.

“At the moment he is very focused on finishing the season,” Pastorello told Sky Sports.

“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. 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.”
