Romelu Lukaku’s agent has suggested that the striker is open to leaving Manchester United at the end of the season.
The 25-year-old has been linked with a summer transfer following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision to use Marcus Rashford as United’s central striker since he replaced Jose Mourinho as manager in December.
And with Solskjaer permanently at the helm, Lukaku faces the prospect of being used in a wider attacking role more often. Lukaku still has three years remaining on his contract with United but the striker’s representative Federico Pastorello has revealed the future is ‘very open’. ‘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.’
