Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku hasn’t started this season as he did last season, with the Belgian forward scoring just four goals in 11 appearances for Manchester United this season.

Despite just moving to Old Trafford from Everton in 2017 for a fee of £75million, the 25-year-old striker has hinted at a move away from Manchester United.

When Lukaku was asked whether he would be open to a move to Serie A, he told Gazzetta dello Sport: “Why not? I hope it happens.”

Lukaku’s brother, Jordan, already plays in the Serie A for Lazio as a left-back.

Lukaku also revealed if he is to move to the Serie A, he would opt for Serie A champions Juventus because of their success and a chance to play with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Lukaku added: “Juve have a great project in place and they just keep going. Every year they try to get stronger.

“Without doubt, Juve are one of the two-three best teams in Europe.

“They’ve got a great coach on the bench and extraordinary players in every area of the team.

“Cristiano Ronaldo stands out, but watch out for the others too. Paulo Dybala is already impressive and getting stronger, while I love Douglas Costa.

“He’s an exceptional signing and his career shows he always makes the difference.”
